AI writing tools are developing at a rapid pace and so is Turnitin’s technology to detect these emerging forms of misconduct. Recently, we shared with you that we have technology that can detect AI-assisted writing and AI writing generated by tools such as ChatGPT. Today, we want to introduce you to our AI Innovation Lab to give you a first-hand glimpse of what our technology (in development) can do.

Our AI team has been working on AI-powered solutions for several years now, and now we’d like to take you along on the ride. Watch this short demo where David Adamson, an AI scientist at Turnitin and a former high school teacher, walks you through our AI writing detection capability.

By providing insights into our Innovation Lab, you’ll have the opportunity to see our development milestones in real-time. As you can see in the video, our technology is far along in progress but we still have work to do before the solution can be “customer-ready.”

We’d also like to highlight a key aspect of our model—something that really sets us apart from other AI writing detectors and makes us most suited for academic institutions. Our model has been trained specifically on academic writing sourced from a comprehensive database, as opposed to solely publicly available content. As a result, Turnitin is more tuned to finding instances of potential dishonesty in student assignments.

We will keep sharing our progress with you at regular intervals and will provide updates as we continue to innovate and develop our technology further. We’re really excited about this new capability to support educators.
