How Should you Humanize AI Writing?


The Role of AI in Content Creation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionalizing how we write, whether it's for business, creative endeavors, or personal use.

While AI can create content quickly, and at scale, it often lacks the human touch that makes writing relatable and emotive. I've used many AI writing tools to write various pieces of work, and tools like Moonbeam, Clevopy AI, and Writecream AI, do a pretty decent job, but I have always found that I need to take the output and humanize it. There has always been the need to fact-check the writing and align it to my style of writing (brand).

What is the Downside of AI-Written Content?

The current state of AI writing is a mixed bag — it has its strengths and weaknesses and the quality is dependent on the AI writing tools used.

On the positive side, a good AI tool can produce good content rapidly and at scale. Shortcomings tend to lie in the inability of AI to understand context fully and produce writing that is factually correct, with emotional depth, and relatable to the readers. For now, these are major obstacles to perfectly AI-written content,  but I do think these issues will be overcome some time in the near future.

What Does AI Detection Look For?

The kinds of things that AI detection looks for include the following:

  • The human factor: Lack of voice, tone, nuance, humor, reasoning, or even unnatural language. There is also forced vocabulary usage and grammar
  • Plagiarism: Content that may be directly used from existing information that has been copied
  • Facts: As AI only takes information from existing datasets, they can generate factual inconsistencies or unrealistic scenarios
  • Statistical anomalies: Statistical analysis may show anomalies compared to human writing, such as higher word diversity
  • Watermarking: Some AI systems intentionally add subtle watermarks to the content they generate that is invisible to humans but can be detected by AI detection tools.
  • Knowledge: Breadth/depth of knowledge may reveal an online AI software was used. For example, ChatGPT knowledge cutoff date is September 2021, so it will currently miss events and developments after this date.
