Generative AI & Higher Ed: AI Content Detectors

A look at how generative AI is being used in higher education and resources to help explain the uses and limitations of AI.

Content Detectors - Accurate or Faulty?

In the same way that Generative AI tools can create unreliable material, AI content detectors are not always accurate in their assessments. OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT has said of their own detection tool: "We believe [the detection tool] does not have high enough accuracy for standalone detection and needs to be paired with metadata-based approaches, human judgment, and public education to be more effective." 

Here are a few examples of AI Content Detectors:

  • GPTZero: An AI detection tool developed by OpenAI to detect ChatGPT, GPT4, BARD, Llama, and other AI models.
  • Turnitin: An AI detection tool designed for educators.
  • WinstonAI: Detects text written by ChatGPT, GPT-4, Bard, Bing Chat, Claude, and many more Large Language Models.
  • Content at Scale: Detects text written by ChatGPT, GPT-4, & Bard.
