AI Plagiarism Detection Tools

Tools to detect machine-generated text are relatively new and constantly being developed, released, and improved.

Because of the limitations of these tools, using multiple detection tools on each sample will provide more accurate responses. That being said, every tool has margins of error, even the very best ones. Remember, even if one of these tools says it is "100% AI-Generated," that does not necessarily mean the text was AI-generated. It just means that it has all the markings of an AI-generated text. There is no foolproof way right now to determine with 100% certainty if an AI chatbot generated a text.
