Frequently asked questions
- How does Writer's proofreading software work?
Do you know when to use lay vs. lie? The difference between the words farther and further? How about em dashes vs. hyphens? If you’re unsure how to answer these questions, Writer is the perfect AI writing assistant for you.
Writer uses artificial intelligence to act as your personal instant online proofreader. Our proofreading tool thoroughly scans your text to make sure you’re using correct punctuation, including dashes, commas, and quotations. Writer also makes sure your words are spelled correctly and that you’re using proper grammar. Writer’s proprietary AI ensures that your writing uses consistent punctuation and sentence structure.
Writer uses techniques from artificial intelligence, such as deep learning. Deep learning systems start out with the capacity to learn, and then are trained to recognize patterns by being shown many examples. For example, we teach the Writer deep learning grammar error correction system to correct subject/verb agreement by showing it many examples of subjects and verbs. We might show it “Writer's AI writing assistant helps everyone at your company write with the same style, terminology, and brand voice” and tell the model that this is a good sentence. Then, we would change the verb "write" to the incorrect "writes". As in, “Writer's AI writing assistant helps everyone at your company writes with the same style, terminology, and brand voice” and tell the model that this is a bad sentence. Writes should be write. We do this millions and millions of times, and the model learns. It doesn't just memorize examples, but gets a "feel" for things. And at Writer, we are very careful about the training data we feed our model, because good data helps the model generalize well.
