Paraphrasing is one of the essential skills that every writer should have. It shows a writer’s understanding of a topic and gives an idea about his writing skills. However, the word paraphrasing only sounds easier, as paraphrasing something is a lengthy and challenging task. That’s where technology can help you.
Technology has started to help writers and paraphrasing tools are its prime example. But how? Let’s find the answer to this question by understanding the benefits of using AI technology in paraphrasing.
AI-based paraphrasing tools work by detecting the text context. However, artificial intelligence (AI) alone cannot develop the best paraphrasing tools. Instead, it works with its branch named Machine Learning (ML).
Machine learning is a technique that allows applications to detect patterns in a set of data. So, courtesy of machine learning, AI-based rephrasing tools can detect the context of the entered information. Then, they rely on the detected context to paraphrase something without affecting its original meaning.
The AI-based paraphrasing mechanism is a two-step procedure.
As the title of this procedure depicts, paraphrase identification is the process of identifying whether the content makes any sense or not.
In this phase, Artificial Intelligence analyzes the flow of content. For this purpose, the AI-based paraphraser works on ‘0’ and ‘1’ signals. ‘0’ indicates that the sentence has shifted from the original meaning, whereas ‘1’ denotes that the sentence has the same purpose.
The next phase is the paraphrasing generation phase. Here, the AI-based rephrasing tools work on the Natural Language Processing (NLP) technique to paraphrase the content by replacing the synonyms of specific words and changing their placement.
In this phase, machine learning and artificial intelligence ensure that the rephrased content is unique and the readability of content stays intact.
Now, after understanding the role of AI in paraphrasing, let’s discuss how Artificial Intelligence can be beneficial for paraphrasing.
As mentioned earlier, artificial intelligence makes it easier to understand the text context. However, artificial intelligence alone is not powerful enough. Therefore, developers take assistance from the branch of artificial intelligence named machine learning.
Machine learning incorporates the context detection functionality in the AI-based paraphrasers. So, artificial intelligence works alongside machine learning to provide more accurate paraphrasing results than manual rephrasing.
When developers take help from artificial intelligence while developing paraphrasing tools, they include multiple paraphrasing modes. Those (multiple) modes come in handy to have different paraphrasing versions of the same input. This way, you can comprehensively paraphrase something by incorporating the essential bits and pieces from other versions. It will also help in exploring a topic in more detail.
The significant advantage of taking assistance from artificial intelligence for paraphrasing something is the ability to overcome writer’s block.
As discussed earlier, artificial intelligence can provide multiple paraphrasing variants for the same input. This way, writers can take those variants as a starting point and get their creative juices flowing. So, paraphrasing through artificial intelligence is one of the best ways to cure writer’s block.
Technology has made everything easier and much quicker. The same is the case with paraphrasing.
Paraphrasing through artificial intelligence saves writers’ time and boosts their productivity because they can quickly get results. This way, writers can focus their saved energy elsewhere and increase their productivity further.
AI-based paraphrasing also helps in correcting grammatical flaws in content. For instance, some creative paraphrasing tools have a built-in grammar checker module that works on Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technique to understand the text context and correct grammatical flaws accordingly. So, paraphrasing with the help of AI technology can also help in producing grammatical-error-free content.
The grammatical error detection may not be as accurate as dedicated grammar-checking tools. But the grammar checking in AI-based paraphrasing does the job.
The manual process of paraphrasing can only improve content’s readability if a writer has top-notch writing skills. However, artificial intelligence has no such limitation.
Since paraphrasing through AI is entirely a technology-based mechanism, your writing skills do not matter when it comes to improving content through artificial intelligence. So, rephrasing through AI works on the delivery tone and sentence structure to provide output with a higher readability score.
When artificial intelligence combines with paraphrasing, it eliminates the need for a grammar checker, content readability improver, and most importantly, a proofreader.
As technology limits the chances of errors, rephrased content through artificial intelligence will not require as much proofreading as manually paraphrased content. So, paraphrasing through AI also helps in proofreading.
But this doesn’t mean you should entirely depend on paraphrased material through AI. Instead, it would help if you always proofread your material irrespective of the accuracy of AI algorithms.
Besides improving the content structure and quality, paraphrasing is also famous for removing plagiarism. However, eliminating plagiarism while manually rephrasing something depends on the writer’s ability.
As discussed earlier, some AI-based applications take assistance from multiple rephrasing modes while paraphrasing. So, some of those AI rephrasing modes are dedicated plagiarism removers, which means that using those modes will always result in unique and 100% plagiarism-free content.
The last benefit of artificial intelligence in paraphrasing is the ability to support rephrasing in multiple languages.
Almost every AI-based paraphrasing tool supports rephrasing the content in multiple languages. That’s because those tools are NLP-based applications, which means they can detect the text context. As NLP is a branch of artificial intelligence, NLP-based paraphrasers can automatically perceive the language and content and rephrase content accordingly.
It’s important to realize that AI technology is not only there to take your job; it is also here to make it easier. The truth is, no one likes doing the same thing repeatedly. Some people don’t want to work in a repetitive environment and that’s where AI comes into play with its ability to automate human tasks.
AI-powered paraphrasing tools are becoming more common in the market. Besides artificial intelligence, AI-based rephrasing tools take assistance from the sub-branches of AI – Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). So, when developers incorporate AI, ML, and NLP to develop paraphrasing tools, the results will be more comprehensive and accurate.
However, artificial intelligence only proves helpful in paraphrasing if you know how to take help from AI-powered tools, as results depend entirely on your proficiency with the tools. So, before getting discouraged by results, you should learn how to take assistance from AI-powered tools to paraphrase something effectively.
Writing is challenging and becomes more complicated when a writer faces writer’s block. So, in such a situation, most writers turn to paraphrasing tools to get their creative juices flowing.
Among the several benefits of paraphrasing, the following three are the most common ones:
