PlagiarismCheck.Org Released ChatGPT Content Detector to Help Educators Maintain Academic Integrity
ChatGPT Content Detector
Check out how ChatGPT Content Detector can accurately identify whether a text was written by a human or an AI with no false positives
LONDON, England, March 23, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The technology of auto-writing is evolving extremely fast. PlagiarismCheck.Org, a Ukrainian startup that specialized in EdTech software, has announced the launch of ChatGPT Content Detector - a tool that helps to reveal AI-generated content reaching 97% accuracy. This tool was developed by testing numerous models based on stylometry and perplexity, with the primary goal of protecting Academic Integrity against AI damage.
ChatGPT Content Detector aims to pinpoint the generated text or its extracts in the whole piece. The algorithm scans students' works for the paragraphs or sentences that have certain AI traits and flags them for a professor as AI-produced content.
The problem of violating academic integrity with the help of AI is essentially a victimless crime. Nonetheless, it primarily damages the quality of education a cheating student will eventually have. On the other hand, the writing can be authentic even if the software says it is not. That's why the PlagiarismCheck.Org team believes it's important to eliminate false positive results. The main thing in AI detection is the fact that a person can write in "AI style," but this is impossible in the opposite way (yet).
ChatGPT Content Detector analyzes text on different levels: the whole piece, paragraphs, and sentences. It helps the platform to give an objective result, answering the question of whether or not the text was generated by AI. Such an approach to text scanning gives educators more certainty about the originality of writing.
"When the tools to generate an essay with no effort are openly available, there is always a risk of academic indecency. For professors to face and overcome this challenge, there is PlagiarismCheck that brings certainty to analyzing students' works for AI presence, similarity, and authorship. ChatGPT Content Detector analyzes multiple parameters and accurately detects AI-generated text from various AI bots. This ensures minimization of false positives, which can occur when human text is mistakenly identified as AI-generated text," says Garrett Baklytskyi, Head of Product at PlagiarismCheck.Org
PlagiarismCheck.Org is an online software that helps educational institutions and individuals check text originality, verify authorship, and improve writing. The tool is able to scan web pages and academic databases to identify any instances of plagiarism. With 200 000+ users and eight years on the market, PlagiarismCheck.org ensures the integrity of their work and maintains high standards of academic and professional ethics.

Chef Ann Foundation Signs a Cooperative Agreement With the USDA to Help Create a More Resilient, Equitable, and Nutritious School Food System
BOULDER, Colo., March 22, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Chef Ann Foundation (CAF) has signed a cooperative agreement with the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) as part of the Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative. An allocation of $7.8 million is provided to CAF as part of The School Food System Transformation Challenge. These funds will be used to build a sub-grant program to incentivize innovative partnerships between school districts, food producers, suppliers, distributors, and community partners to strengthen the availability and access to nutritious food products in the K-12 school food.
"The pandemic shed light on the cracks in our food system, and school food teams have been burdened with supply chain issues. We need to help our schools and their regional food communities work together to empower local food production and distribution," said Mara Fleishman, CEO of Chef Ann Foundation.
In partnership with USDA FNS, CAF partnered with Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition, Kitchen Sync Strategies, and the National Farm to School Network. These partners will ensure that the sub-grants will increase the offering of healthier food products in the K-12 school food marketplace; leverage innovative partnerships between School Food Authorities (SFA) and key stakeholders in their local food systems; expand SFA procurement capacity at the local and regional levels; and increase market opportunities for local growers and producers. The sub-grants will be developed with an eye towards cultivating equity, nourishing students, fostering a resilient supply chain, and creating scalable and sustainable change for SFAs across the country.
"Procurement, in particular, remains one of the most complex processes within school food service departments. SFAs are required to navigate sourcing ingredients that fulfill the mission of serving fresh, local foods while working within limited budgets, under-resourced producers, and strained supply chains," says Elliott Smith, co-founder of Kitchen Sync Strategies.
In order to effectively meet current standards, in addition to upcoming changes that align with the USDA Dietary Guidelines, school districts must be equipped with the network and resources necessary to achieve such requirements. Realistically, no SFA or individual business is capable of accomplishing such a complex universal goal without multiple strategic partnerships with other organizations, businesses, and agencies in their food economy. The sub-grants support the development of the hard and soft infrastructures needed to successfully increase access to nutritious and appealing foods for kids.
"USDA is taking a holistic approach to supporting school meal programs, which includes strengthening the food supply chain that supports them," said Stacy Dean, deputy under secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services. "We're hopeful that these grants will accelerate and expand innovation in the school food marketplace, so that schools - and ultimately our children - have better access to healthier food products."
These initiatives are part of the Biden-Harris Administration's National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The National Strategy provides a roadmap of actions the federal government will take to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030 - all while reducing disparities. The National Strategy was released in conjunction with the first White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in over 50 years, hosted by President Biden in September 2022.
