We're back and ready to review another tool that claims to generate content that bypasses AI content detectors.
This time, we are testing out Phrasly AI, a tool designed specifically for bypassing AI detectors, offering users "humanizing AI-generated content" that will bypass popular AI detectors like Originality.ai.
So far, as part of our tests, tools like this have come up short, only able to pass our detection by making countless grammar mistakes or writing incoherent sentences.
Nonetheless, we will conduct similar tests here to see if Phrasly AI's co-writer feature is the real deal or if another company is trying to make a quick buck.
Here, we will discuss the following:
A greater look at Phrasly AI
How Phrasly AI works
Why there is interest in tools like Phrasly AI
Testing the tool on blog posts
A final verdict on whether Phrasly AI content passes AI detection.
What is Phrasly AI?
According to Phrasly AI, their tool can "Transform AI-generated content into undetectable text with Phrasly. Save time on your assignments, boost grades, and easily bypass AI detectors like Turnitin and GPTZero."
Well, we'll be the judge of that!
Whenever a company claims to help people with their school work while also claiming you will be maintaining academic integrity in the process, we see red flags.
After all, the concept of handing in AI-generated content as your own, whether detectable or not, lacks integrity.
While we certainly don't promote Originality.ai as an academic tool, we do believe in the importance of integrity and transparency in a world where misinformation and generated content is easier to create than ever before.
That's not to say we don't believe that AI content generation tools have some key features that can be ideal for certain situations, but it does mean we don't believe in using detection bypassing tools, especially to "boost grades."
Why are People Interested in Phrasly AI?
However, if we refer back to the statement made on the front page of the Phrasly AI website, we can identify two clear motives for people seeking out tools like Phrasly AI to help with their work or projects.
To save time and to improve your scores.
And that doesn't have to be at school or college. That can also be saving time at work when your schedule is particularly busy or trying to impress your colleagues or boss with your output.
Does it Work? The Results
With that in mind, it is easy to see why an AI detector bypass tool is so exciting for some, especially if it creates indistinguishable human-like text and allows people to overcome common writing challenges.
But is Phrasly AI a revolutionary tool providing valuable assistance or one that uses grammar errors and incoherent sentences to trick users into thinking it works?
Write me an article about the pros and cons of starting your own e-commerce business. The article should be written by a source of authority and should show that we are an expert source on the topic of e-commerce start-ups. Include headings where necessary and a quick key takeaways bullet list section straight after the introduction. The content should lean towards the pros rather than the cons, and the conclusion should reflect that. Please write between 500-700 words.
And here's what we will be working with for this test:
Now, all that's left is to run that through our detectors, run it through Phrasly AI, and then our detectors once more.
Original content: 100% AI & 0% Human-written
Phrasly version: 100% AI & 0% Human-written
Original content: 56% AI & 44% Human-written
Phrasly version: 31% AI & 69% Human-written
Original content: 1% AI & 99% Human-written
Phrasly version: 0% AI & 100% Human-written
Original content: "Hard to tell"
Phrasly version: "Hard to tell"
Original content: 100% AI & 0% Human written
Phrasly version: 100% AI & 0% Human written
As you can see from the results, they're mixed at best. For Originality.ai, the tool detected both versions as 100% AI-generated, as did CopyLeaks, while ContentAtScale determined that both pieces of content are 'Hard to Tell.'
Writer seemed to think both versions were human-written, but you can only check 1500 characters at a time with their program, which may have factored into their miscalculations.
As for GPTZero, that tool's percentage score changed from 56% chance of AI-generated content to 31%, which is interesting.
However, looking a little deeper into the content, it is easy to see why that tool struggled to identify the AI-generated content, as the sentences were highly concluded and unnecessarily complex.
Here are a couple of examples:
Is Phrasly effective at bypassing popular ai detectors? It would seem that, at best, the tool can turn your content into less well-written content, but even then, the best AI content detection tools are up to the challenge.
Frequently Asked Questions About AI Detection Tools and AI-Generated Content
Is Phrasly AI free?
Phrasly AI lets you input as many as 550 words as part of its free subscription, but you need to purchase a membership for larger pieces of AI-generated content.
What is Phrasly AI?
Phrasly AI claims to transform ai generated content into human-like text, which doesn't show up on AI detectors like Turnitin, Originality.ai, and others. The tool offers this service in multiple languages and as a result, is a popular platform.
How do I make AI non-detectable?
As we have proven, AI-generated content is almost impossible to turn undetectable without making significant grammatical errors or writing very poorly. As a result, we recommend you use AI tools for generating content ideas and outlines and then writing the content yourself.
Not only will this writing process help you bypass AI detectors as your content is human-written, but it will also ensure you maintain academic integrity.
Are AI-powered writing tools ethically okay to use?
AI-generated text is certainly fine to use, but only in specific circumstances. For example, an AI-powered writing tool can be a very handy tool for content ideas, to save time, or as a grammar checker, but it shouldn't be used to substitute hard work in integrity.
