How To Detect AI Written Content

As Artificial Intelligence has started taking over the world, many readers can’t understand whether the material they read online is written by humans or generated by AI. To be able to tell them apart, people have found some sources and techniques that can help distinguish between AI-generated content and human-generated content. 

Before seeing how to detect AI content, let’s see what AI-generated content is.

What Is AI-Generated Content?

One can produce AI-generated content by making use of technologies and techniques that include machine learning and natural processing of languages. Moreover, by using tools driven by artificial intelligence, you can achieve AI generated content. Such AI-driven tools are used to produce any type of content like blogs, recipes, essays and social media posts.

How Can You Generate AI Content? 

You have to put in some information about the topic and keywords, and then the AI starts to write about it. 

How AI Produces Content 

After the input of keywords, AI starts to search the internet and collect relevant information to create an essay, recipe, or document. AI is also able to convert informative content into a blog as well. That being said, you will see an obvious difference between AI-written content and human-generated content.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of AI-Generated Content 

Using AI to generate content prevents writer’s block and enhances search engine optimization. Moreover, it also saves time and cost. Copywriters do benefit from AI. However, you will find some content irrelevant with many mistakes, causing humans to proofread it. 

Let’s see some ways to recognize AI-generated text.

Sources That Assist In Detecting AI-Written Content

Many sources detect AI-written content. Some of them are free, while some of them charge a small amount per search depending on the number of words.  

Content Scale AI-Detector

Content at Scale AI tool can check more than 25,000 characters at a time. You have to copy and paste your content, and within a few seconds, it will tell you to bow much of it us human-generated


You can also use the tool ‘Originality,’ which gives you two benefits. It is an AI detector and a plagiarism checker. Originality is for serious academic writers, professors, editors, and publishers. LMS plagiarism checker also checks both plagiarism and AI-generated content by recognizing different paraphrased sections and plagiarized content code. 

Entropy And Gptzero 

MIT and Harvard’s lab released entropy. It highlights all the words that are randomly used in a writing piece. Moreover, GPTZero is especially made for educators. After scanning your documents through GPTZero, it tells the likelihood of your content being AI free.

AI Text Classifier Of OpenAI

OpenAI’s text classifier is very basic to use. You must log in with the ID password and paste the text. Tap on the submit option to see the rating on the screen. The tools of openAI are effective for longer text, which is why it requires at least 10000 characters to run the search. 

Sometimes OpenAI doesn’t label the human-written text and AI-generated one correctly. Moreover, it is made for content written in English, so other languages can’t be detected. The rating shows how much AI text is in your work and gives answers in the following ways.

  • Highly unlikely
  • Unlikely 
  • Possibly
  • Likely
  • Very likely

For 100 words, you need to pay 0.01, which is not expensive for most. 

Using The Human Eye For The Detection Of AI Content 

There is no fixed way a human can use to detect AI content. However, with time, professional writers are able to distinguish between AI-written content and Human generated content. 

Picking Up Implausible Statements 

AI written content will have Implausible statements. These are such statements which are hard to believe. So, if the AI is saying that it takes one hour to make a cup of tea or coffee, it is obvious that a human hasn’t written such a statement. 

Check The Frequency Of Words Appearing In A Text.

By recognizing the repetition of certain words, patterns of punctuation, and the length of some statements, you can determine whether the content is AI-generated or human-generated. A Google Brain scientist says that if the text is around 1000 words, you will notice AI using ‘the’ frequently. 

The reason is that language models can predict the next word. The next word is usually ‘the’ or the pronoun ‘it’ or the helping verb ‘is’ in an AI-generated content. 

Recreating Patterns

Besides using tools, people have learned different patterns common in AI-generated texts. The patterns are fixed, so if the content is seen to fit the pattern, it is AI-generated. The more it fits, the more the percentage of content produced by an AI. As humans are different from one another, every human will have a different writing style. AI-generated text, however, is not human generated, so it is predictable. 

Look For Typos

AI never makes a typo, which is a big sign that if the content has typos, it is most likely human-generated. 


To make your work more credible, you must find ways to detect AI content, especially if you are a freelancer. Use the sources mentioned above and implement these ways to enhance the reliability of your work.
