French plagiarism detection company, Compilatio, will soon commercialize a service to detect texts generated by Artificial Intelligences (AI) such as ChatGPT.
This solution might reassure teachers by allowing them to confirm that the texts they take the time to correct are indeed authentic, written by the student himself.
Compilatio solution detects the difference between a ”human author” and a ”robot author”
This technology can process texts written in many languages, including French, English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German and it has been tested on research and academic documents.
In preliminary tests, the system was able to identify the nature of the author of a text in almost 9 cases out of 10. Texts written by a human were correctly recognized in 90% of cases and texts written by an AI were detected in 88% of cases.
Preliminary tests were performed on 125 documents containing between 250 and 2,200 characters, with an average of 1,000 characters
