Google Docs To Roll-Out Grammar Checking AI
Google has announced that it’s adding a great variety of improvements to its suite, and one of those improvements also includes Google Docs grammar checking AI.
Being that many people; especially content writers use Google Docs, they will now be able to use it to check grammar. That way, software like Grammarly will now have competition.
The new software will be capable of recognizing words that usually get mixed up by people – such as “then” and “than,” or “affect” and “effect,” as well as wrong uses of commas and clauses and usage of incorrect tenses.
As described in the Google blog post, the system relies on machine translation, a technology that is found and used in Google Translate, which translates multiple languages. Having said that, instead of properly translating languages, it will be correcting everyday errors that we make.
Google Docs artificial intelligence ”AI” grammar checker is not the first feature of this kind. There is another software competitor that offers both free and premium versions of its grammar checking software that can be added into Microsoft Office Word or as a browser extension. It’s called “Grammarly”.
Grammarly uses an advanced artificial intelligence algorithm which helps analyze the sentence, discovering errors in spelling, tenses and punctuation, as well as style and sentence structure in a pro version. The pro version also offers a pretty reliable plagiarism checker feature.
