“Page not found” and “We couldn’t find the page you were looking for.”
The tool, which was released in February 2023, to detect AI-generated content, is no longer accessible to users. It’s unclear whether this is another downtime that OpenAI usually faces or whether the company has taken down the tool indefinitely.
While AI content can easily be guessed by experts, it’s still hard for a typical person to get a grasp of it. Generative AI has been so good in a while that most people have started relying on AI chatbots for writing messages to generate blog posts and even books. Therefore, this decision comes as a surprise to many who relied on the classifier to differentiate between machine-generated and human-created content.
Speaking of the tool, it hasn’t been doing well and often wasn’t able to detect the AI generated content with as much precision as other tools, such as Copyleaks could, but its absence now raises questions about the future of such AI detection systems. Perhaps, it has been taken down to improve the system or maybe AI generated text is as good as a human generated one?
While OpenAI has not released an official statement regarding the reasons for the removal, some speculate that it might be part of the company’s ongoing efforts to refine and optimize its AI tools. It’s possible that they are working on a more advanced solution to address the evolving challenges in detecting AI-generated content.
Content creators and users in various fields have come to rely on the AI chatbots, such as ChatGPT, to generated textual content, and text classifier was used to assess the authenticity of information. However, its absence may impact workflows of many people, especially those who employ content writers and want to avoid AI generated content. Without the tool, distinguishing between human-generated and AI-generated content becomes more challenging, leading to potential issues with misinformation and credibility.
If you were using the AI detection tool of OpenAI, there are several alternatives that you can try right now. The best alternative that I find is Copyleaks. While this AI detection tool also misses a lot
