OpenAI pulls AI Classifier down

Share post:

OpenAI has quietly pulled its AI Classifier, an experimental tool designed to detect AI-written text. The decommissioning was announced through a small note added to OpenAI’s official AI Classifier webpage.

OpenAI admitted that its AI Classifier was not “fully reliable,” correctly identifying only 26 percent of AI-written text as “likely AI-written” and incorrectly labeling human-written works 9 percent of the time.

The tool’s low accuracy is due to a number of factors, including the fact that AI models are constantly improving, making it more difficult to distinguish between human and AI-generated text. Additionally, AI writing detectors can be fooled by simply asking ChatGPT to write in the style of a known author.

As a result of these limitations, OpenAI has decided to focus its research on more effective provenance techniques for text. These techniques will use a variety of factors, such as the text’s style, grammar, and word choice, to determine if it was generated by an AI model.
