Deep Grammar will correct your text using AI technology - 0 views

    Deep Grammar works by giving each word a value known as a vector. It then uses that value to determine what context you have used the term in and whether or not it needs changing when it analyzes your text.

    Mugan gives the example of how Deep Grammar might learn that "I feel worried" is closer to the same meaning as "I feel anxious" than it is to "I feel sleepy."

    It takes three steps to analyze what has been written - firstly, it computes the likelihood that what's written is what you mean to say and then if needs be, it will replicate the sentence or phrase with something more likely to be what you meant and makes a suggestion to edit.
