Introduction: What is an AI Writing Assistant and How Does it Actually Work?
OPTIMIZATION: NOTE:I am not a professional writer, so I’m not going to go into great detail about this. However, I have been writing for about five years and have used a few different writing programs. The best program for me has been Microsoft Word itself (which I use on a Mac), but there are other good ones that are comparable to it. As mentioned in the intro, these programs work by finding patterns in your text. For example, if you are writing about a soccer player, the program will start to look for text that mentions soccer. Once it finds it, it will start looking for longer texts (an article or book) that mention that soccer player and so on. As you can see, you can end up digging pretty far into your writing to find a valid mention. It is also possible to make use of information other than just words. If you want to make sure that you are using the right tense, the program will know what tense you are writing in and it will look for patterns in your work where it is used correctly. If a pattern is found, it will highlight that part of your text. This can be useful for adverbs because adverbs can be pretty tricky sometimes (it’s easy).
How AI Writing Tools can Help with 5 Amazing Use Cases
I will not delve too far into the technical aspects of these programs. (OKAY, ALMOST) The best way to think about how they work is that they find a pattern in your text, and then based on this pattern they make an educated guess as to what part of your text is relevant to that pattern. For example: if a writer is talking about a person, in your text these programs might find a sentence like: “He had blue eyes” and it would guess that the next sentence would start with “he was…”. In another example, if you are talking about pieces of art, the AI could see that you are talking about paintings, and based on this, guess that the next sentence will talk about the painter.
If you’re still with me, you might be saying: “So? What does this have to do with writing my paper?” Well, let’s consider a few different use cases for AI writing tools.
AI Writing Assistant, a Copywriter & Marketer’s Best Friend to Save Time & Money
would come up with a suggestion of how you could use an image to illustrate what you are trying to say: “Here’s an example of a painting that fits in with the subject that I mentioned above.” “This was a picture I found of a turkey and radish.”
When I mention the word “turkey,” the AI Writing Assistant would suggest that you use an image that fit in with this. It would also copy out some text. This means those struggling writers can write their descriptions and layout themselves and let the AI Write Assistant do all the work! It really is genius.
It would keep coming up with suggestions and writing stuff that looked fine. I like what it did with the description and caption of the painting. It also gave me some advice on things to write in underneath it. This is a really good way of capturing information to add to your website as an article or stand-alone piece of content.
I think we can do a lot better than this. I have seen some really good examples of AI writing from copywriters, but I don’t think it has been used enough in the digital marketing world.
