 WRINGER '' '''


Plagiarizing essays. Cheating on tests. Spreading misinformation. The advent of new, powerful artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT has raised concerns about the unintended consequences of the technology and debate over the ethical implications of its use.

But A.I. assistants seem here to stay. After ChatGPT's splashy debut last year, Microsoft invested $10 billion in OpenAI, the lab behind the chatbot. Seeing a threat from a rival, Google regrouped.

Given the growing influence of this technology, it's time to focus on how we can start reaping its benefits in a responsible way. Many A.I. experts and computer scientists agree that these tools can provide a major service that does no harm : editing our writing.

In this context we would still be using our skills and brainpower to do the hardwork of making sense of information and coming up with new ideas, while turning to A.I. for some light assistance, such as making a sentence sound more conversational, sprinkling in some historical context or even adding a joke.

For several days, I tested Wordtune Spices and Rytr, two A.I. writing assistants released by start-ups in the last two years, and compared them with ChatGPT.I'll go over some examples that highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each of these tools.

Rewriting A Sentence : To use Wordtune Spices, which the Israeli start-up AI21 Labs released last month, you insert text into a box, highlight the sentences you want edited and then click on options to make improvements. Among its best uses during my recent test were quick rewrites of sentences.

For example, I took this sentence from my column last week about email addresses and privacy:

' When you browse the web, an increasing number of sites and apps are asking for a piece of basic information that you probably hand over without hesitation : your email address. '

THEN I clicked the ''Rewrite'' button. Wordtune Spices shot back a list of options for revisions of the sentences. I liked this one best.

' Your email address is one of the most basic pieces of info that is being requested by more and more websites and apps. '

My original sentences included a significant detail to me - that we hand over our email addresses without hesitation - but the tool trimmed a few words to cut to the chase and summarize the heart of the problem. Not bad.

Catching Grammatical Errors : Rytr, an A.I.writing assistant released in 2021 by a company of the same name, was designed to streamline the creation of blog posts and marketing copy.

It was proficient at catching grammatical errors [as, similarly, word-processing tools like Microsoft Word have been doing for decades].

IN MY TEST, I took this paragraph, which has intentional errors, from an educational website that provides editing exercises :

' Facebook, with more then 1 Billion users Is celebrated its 10th birthday this year.

The company was launching by Mark Zuckerberg at 4th February 2004. The cite was Conceived in a Harvard dorm in a way. To connect student and let them build an identity for himself online.'

Then in Rytr, I highlighted the paragraph and clicked ''Improve.'' It gave me this :

' Facebook with more than 1 Billion users, celebrated its 10th birthday this year. The company was launched by Mark Zuckerberg on February 4th 2004. The site was conceived in a Harvard dorm as a way to connect students and let them build an identity for themselves online.

The tool automatically rewrote an error-free version of the paragraph. This could be extremely handy as a study tool or for nonnative English speakers.

All this shows that artificial intelligence can be an effective tool for improving our work. I was surprised by some of the results - in particular, that Wordtune Spices could add accurate and relevant background information.

I may occasionally use the tool for suggestions on fleshing out paragraphs with some historical data, though I will then check the facts before publishing.

And in general, the A.I.bots were useful for sharpening prose.

What the bots couldn't do, however, was the research or reporting to show their strengths and weaknesses. That requires thought.
