How Does QuillBot Work?

What QuillBot does vs. how QuillBot works are two very different things.

Let’s keep it simple: QuillBot is an online writing platform with a bunch of tools aimed at elevating and perfecting your writing.

QuillBot paraphrases, summarizes, checks for grammar and plagiarism, translates, outlines, creates citations, and sets you up for success in school, work, and your personal life.

Essentially, QuillBot makes writing painless.

So how does QuillBot work?

QuillBot’s AI trains on datasets, which show it the right and wrong ways to write. A dataset is a collection of information (in QuillBot’s case, information on grammar, spelling, punctuation, tone, sentence structure, and clarity) that can be read as a single unit of information by a computer.

So something like users “ignoring” a suggestion can act as a dataset. When enough users “Ignore” a suggestion, QuillBot’s AI learns that the suggestion is not helpful for that specific instance.

For example, if QuillBot kept recommending that users change the word “sad” to “pathetic,” and enough users hit “Ignore,” QuillBot might recommend something like “depressed” or “sorrowful” instead. Since “pathetic” often conjures feelings of pity, it might not always be synonymous with “sad,” depending on the context of the situation.
