Is I Write Like accurate?
First of all, writing style doesn’t have a precise definition. People
can tell you that a certain author write in this style or that style, but their opinions
may differ. Thus, it’s difficult to tell even if a human evaluation
of styles is accurate. Of course, algorithmic evaluation is
even more complicated.
I Write Like uses a certain statistical analysis of word choice and sentence structure.
The initial analysis was performed for each author included in our database.
The program calculates the same metrics for your text and then calculates
probabilities that tell which author has the most similar metrics.
Such analysis is not 100% accurate. It’s still fun, though.
How does it work?
