The Originality.AI Story

Jon Gillham founded Originality.AI after selling a content marketing agency he had previously founded.

Originality.AI launched in November 2022 to be able to detect GPT-3 generated content (before ChatGPT had launched).

Having been one of the earliest adopters of generative AI content for SEO purposes at scale through his agency he understood the wave that was coming which Chat GPT and GPT-4 have fully unleashed.

Additionally he believed that there was a need for a modern plagiarism checking solution that didn’t suck! One that provided scan history, detection scores, shareable results, team access etc etc… what you would expect from a modern Plagiarism Checking solution.

The team now includes experienced Machine Learning Engineers and Researchers, Developers and Marketers all on a mission to try and provide transparency on the true originality of any writing.

Originality.ai did a fantastic job on all three prompts, precisely detecting them as AI-written. Additionally, after I checked with actual human-written textual content, it did determine it as 100% human-generated, which is important.

I use this tool most frequently to check for AI content personally. My most frequent use-case is checking content submitted by freelance writers we work with for AI and plagiarism.
