Turnitin – The Plagiarism Checker for AI writing

The emergence of the AI writing has significant implications for education. Turnitin, as a plagiarism checking tool, has introduced a new technology to cope with these dramatic changes.

Turnitin AI team has successfully developed an AI detector to detect AI writing, ChatGPT, and AI-paraphrasing, which identifies 97% of ChatGPT and GPT3 authored writing, with less than 1% false positive rate. Turnitin plans to add this functionality to the core integrity writing products for teachers use. The target release date is 5 April 2023. This new feature will work within the existing Turnitin workflow, teachers can analyze content and use feedback tools in the same user experience they already have.
