QuillBot uses machine learning to understand and improve on the paraphrases it makes, and like a human, it can occasionally make mistakes based on the training data and human input we had it learn from.
Common Causes of Errors
There are a few mistakes in text that can consistently cause errors in paraphrasing:
- No space after a period: If you end a sentence with a period, but do not put a space between the period and the first word of the next sentence, our model will assume it is one sentence
- Mixing English and non-English letters: If you have a sentence that incorporates non-English letters being used as English letters (such as letters from the Cyrillic alphabet) you will receive errors in your paraphrasing.
- Line breaks: If you have a line break in the middle of a sentence, our model will treat it as two separate sentences instead of one, which will alter the meaning.
We are constantly training our AI to help reduce the amount of mistakes QuillBot makes while also ensuring that the results you get read well and feel natural. If an error is showing up regularly, or you notice toxicity in the results (such as profanity, sexism, or other hateful content), please contact us so we can investigate the issue.
