“Humanmark” Those Words!

By: Efsun Seferoglu

The emergence of artificial intelligence may be a glimmer of hope for overbusy and sleep-deprived college students; but it resembles a catastrophe for writers, professors, and various occupational groups. Especially when it comes to ChatGPT specifically, lots of arguments have ignited over the past year. Even though both pro-AI and anti-AI communities have their admissible reasons, the war council for ‘To ChatGPT or Not to ChatGPT’ does not seem to dissolve anytime soon. In the meantime, how can we avoid the backlash of this otherwise very useful tool? What if a piece of writing you have poured your heart and soul into or your blood, sweat, and tears if the piece in question is a final project— is accused of being AI written? It happens. The use of simple grammar and commonly used words and phrases may lead to your piece winning an overly-annoying “Created By AI” badge. What if an article or short story you wrote gets stolen and the person responsible does not face any consequences because there is no AI detected? Again, it happens. It is no secret that ChatGPT is not fully detectable, and the AI detectors are not exactly trustworthy either. After all, the US Constitution was marked to be AI-generated by one of the detector tools.

Fortunately, another AI program comes to rescue us from falling victim to ChatGPT’s wrath. GPTZero, which is first and foremost an AI detector, has a new feature called “Human Writing Report”. This new addition which is accessible through their website allows users to certify their writing and protect their current and future works from being accused of AI generation. According to the sample articles, research papers, stories, etc. that the user uploads, GPTZero analyzes the writing pattern and creates a watermark for the individual. This would be useful for college students who want to avoid possible suspicions that their professors may have about their work, as well as writers and creators who want to have solid proof to protect their work. All in all, we have a source to ‘humanmark’ our words at last.
