Student invents tool that detects if essay is from ChatGPT


A new app can detect whether an essay was written by ChatGPT or not, as researchers look for ways to combat artificial intelligence plagiarism.

Edward Tian, a computer science student at Princeton, said he spent the holiday break building the GPTZero app.

He shared two videos comparing the app’s analysis to a New Yorker article, and a letter written by ChatGPT.

The application correctly identified which was written by a human and which by artificial intelligence.

GPTZero on the text written by ChatGPT writes about its “fuzz and momentum” – referring to how complicated it is and how haphazardly written that text is.

The app was so popular that it was blocked “due to unexpectedly high internet traffic” and currently features a beta registration page. GPTZero is still available for use on Tian’s Streamlit site after the website’s “hosts” stepped in to increase its capacity.

Tian, a former data journalist at the BBC, said he was motivated to build GPTZero after seeing increased cases of AI plagiarism.

“Will high school teachers want students to use ChatGPT to write their history essays? Probably not,” he wrote on Twitter.

The Guardian recently reported that ChatGPT is introducing its own system to combat plagiarism by making it easier to identify and deploy bot production watermarks.
