The rapid proliferation of AI-generated content, especially since the recent introduction of ChatGPTin November, has made it useful and necessary for companies and other types of institutions to verify the authenticity of a piece of content, i.e., whether a particular piece of content was created with a tool or not. In addition, it is in the interest of digital marketers and SEOs to ensure that Google indexes a website’s content correctly.
For this reason, some tools have emerged that allow AI detection and plagiarism checking. In this article I would like to introduce you to some of them, so read on!
How To Detect AI-Generated Content?
There are several ways to recognize AI-generated content. One common method is to use software that analyzes various features of the text, such as the use of a particular language, a particular formatting or structure, and the repetition of certain keywords.
Large language models (LLMs) can also be used to detect AI-generated text. One of the most successful ways to do this is to retrain the model on some texts written by humans, and other machine-generated text so that it learns to distinguish between the two, says Muhammad Abdul-Mageed, researcher in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning at the College of British Columbia.
Online AI Plagiarism Checkers
There are a number of tools that promise to detect AI-generated content. Most of these tools are based on GPT-2 or GPT-3. While the first is a compressed model trained with a limited amount of data and works well with English but not with other languages, the second is currently the largest and most powerful model, which is also used for ChatGPT and is multilingual.
Here is a short list with the 5 best plagiarism checkers for AI-generated content.
GPTRadar is one of the best tools for detecting AI. It is based on GPT-3 Davinci that can detect whether the content was written by a human or a machine by analyzing text and performing certain calculations on metrics like perplexity and burstiness.
The former indicates the degree of confidence with which the model generates the next words , while the latter is how perplexity changes over every sentence to identify common patterns. The result contains a percentage for accuracy, which indicates the degree of confidence of the model with respect to the result.
The feedback loop allows the GPTRadar team to constantly improve the model used for AI recognition and thus the result for the user. The tool costs $0.02 per credit (1 credit = 100 tokens ≈ 125 words), and API is also available.
Originally.AI is a plagiarism checker and AI detector that is able to determine if the scanned text was written with an AI tool. It was developed by a team of content marketing and GPT-3 experts for web publishers, content agencies and website buyers. It allows them to search for plagiarism cases, monitor the team’s activities, and check if not just one page, but the content of an entire website is original (this feature is coming soon). It can also detect content written with ChatGPT and GPT 3.5 (DaVinci-003) with the same accuracy as GPT-3.
It also provides APIs to integrate AI detection into the content creation workflow or into a custom tool. Pricing starts at $0.01 per credit, 1 credit scans 100 words.
GPTZero uses the same technology that was used to develop ChatGPT, with the opposite goal of detecting whether content was written with AI.
The tool is under constant development. As stated on the website, the GPTZero team is working on building a special solution for educators that can help them use AI technologies responsibly. The classic version is currently free (and probably will be in the future).

Other Frequently Asked Questions
Does Google penalize AI content?
With the Helpful Content Update, Google confirms its aversion to AI-generated content and its intention to avoid the proliferation of low-quality text written for search engines, not for people.
There is a way to make a difference and create AI-generated content of high quality without risking a penalty from Google (and users). The answer is simple: data. As Kevin Indig said: “The biggest differentiator will be what inputs (data) companies can use to create content”. And that’s where structured data comes in.
Is AI content good for SEO?
When it comes to AI-generated content for SEO, there is no absolute good or bad. To create tangible and sustainable business value, you need to create workflows where humans collaborate with machines. This means using language models like GPT-3 while maintaining control over content quality and semantic accuracy. Within this workflow, humans have the main task of nurturing semantically rich data in Knowledge Graphs. This is the only way to create content faster, support the work of the editorial team, and scale SEO.
In WordLift, we have developed a sophisticated approach to AI-generated content, from initial data collection and enrichment to active learning where the model is improved and the validation pipeline is also improved.
