What are AI Writing Tools?

They are essentially AI-powered software applications that help authors, writers, content creators, and content marketers elevate the quality and speed at which they produce content. 

These applications leverage Natural language processing (NLP), a branch of AI that helps computers comprehend text and spoken words like humans do. Hence, these tools are capable of generating text content that mirrors the nuanced tone, emotion, and style of content produced by humans.

The only difference is that AI technology does the work based on instructions and commands given by humans. Today, the range of tasks performed by AI writing tools expands beyond mere automated content generation.

They also have superior capabilities to contribute to key editorial processes such as AI-based editing and proofreading and language translation. By leveraging tools to take care of such time-consuming, detail-oriented tasks, authors reallocate their time to more pressing activities.
