Involvement of AI in Writing - Write Your Imagination with AI Tools

Professional writing isn’t easy. As a blogger, journalist or reporter, you have to meet several challenges to stay at the top of your trade. You have to stay up to date with the latest developments and at the same time write timely, compelling and unique content.The same goes for scientists, researchers and analysts and other professionals whose job involves a lot of writing.
Fortunately, Artificial Intelligence, which is fast permeating every aspect of human life, has a few tricks up its sleeve to boost the efforts of professional writers.

Introducing AI based new Smart proofreading tool: 

In 2014, George R. R. Martin, the acclaimed writer of the Song of Ice and Fire saga, explained in an interview how he avoids modern word processors because of their pesky auto-correct and spell checkers.
Software vendors have always tried to assist writers by adding proofreading features to their tools. But as writers like Martin will attest, those efforts can be a nuisance to anyone with more-than-moderate writing skills.
However, that is changing as AI is getting better at understanding the context and intent of written text. One example is Microsoft word new editor feature, a tool that uses AI to provide more than simple proofreading.

Editor can understand different nuances in your prose much better than code-and-logic tools do. It flags not only to grammatical errors and style mistakes, but also the use of unnecessarily complex words and overused terms. For instance, it knows when you’re using the word “really” to emphasize a point or to pose a question.
It also gives eloquent descriptions of its decisions and provides smart suggestions when it deems something as incorrect. For example if it marks a sentence as passive, it will provide a reworded version in active voice.
Editor has been well received by professional writers (passive voice intended), though it’s still far from perfect.
Nonetheless AI-powered writing assistance is fast becoming a competitive market. Grammarly , a freemium grammar checker that installs as a browser extension, uses AI to help with all writing tasks on the web. Atomic Reach is another player in the space, which uses machine learning to provide feedback on the readability of written content.
