It’s the dream of everyone with an assignment to get ChatGPT to do the work and pass every AI detector tool with flying colors. For many students and working professionals, AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT have become a standard part of life, assisting with various tasks.
However, this increased AI presence has also led to a growing need for plagiarism and AI-content detector tools. Let’s explore those tools and how to do your best to avoid triggering them.
Understanding AI detector tools
In theory, AI Detector tools like ZeroGPT, Turnitin, and more are meant to check whether a text contains plagiarism and/or AI-written content. But do they work? Does it matter if someone pays for the premium version?
The reality is that even OpenAI stopped promoting their AI detection tool because it turned out to be unreliable and came up with the following statement: “As of July 20, 2023, the AI classifier is no longer available due to its low rate of accuracy”. However, they’re working on a new tool called the AI Classifier (https://openai.com/blog/new-ai-classifier-for-indicating-ai-written-text).
Plagiarism tools are more reliable because there is factual information behind how they work. They can easily find parts of unedited text that look just like another piece of work written before. It does not always mean plagiarism, but it could indicate that information has been copied and pasted from somewhere. Remember, plagiarism is taking someone’s work without citing the source.
So far, we haven’t seen any significant cases of AI detector tools being used to strip someone of a prize, diploma, or more. Some teachers have been testing copies from their students and asking them to do the work again after a positive result from an AI detector tool. However, the guidelines and laws are still a blur regarding legal actions and whether a detection tool is concrete evidence.
Now that we know that, let’s dig into how we can make sure that an AI copy passes AI detection tools.
Sneaking past detection tools
Let’s pretend you wrote an article and want to pass AI detection tools. What can you do? You can try a simple prompt:
Please rephrase this article to pass AI detection tools and use slightly more complex words. Avoid using typical AI wording. Make the text less predictable.
If you pay close attention, you’ll notice that ChatGPT puts capitals in titles, even though they’re not needed. You can ask ChatGPT to stop doing that or remove them manually. These capitals are signs that AI writes the text, so it’s better to remove them.
Once you have rephrased your text and removed unnecessary capitals, dump your article into an AI detector, see which phrases are detected as AI-written, and simply edit them with your personal touch.
You can also use those additional prompts:
- Rephrase this without using unnecessary capitals
- Rephrase the text but use (variation)
- Rephrase this in the (style/tone) of (xxx)
- Rephrase this and add niche-specific vocabulary
- Rephrase this and make it less/more academic
- Rephrase this and don’t use any bold or formatting
ChatGPT is predictable, and some formatting tricks will make sure your output is quality content. To save time editing, you can use the following prompts:
Do not underline any text, don’t use bold, don’t use asterisks or any other formatting.
Write your answer again but without (numbers, list format, punctuation, capitals, etc)
To do the best rephrasing possible, tell ChatGPT what you want:
Please rephrase this text and make it (longer, shorter, same length), rephrase it with (the same vocab, easier words, more complex words, and academic level), and don’t use (bold, italic, underline, formatting, etc)
The last tip, of course, is to add as much personal touch to the text as possible.
