@OriginalWorks Bot Explanation & InfosteemCreated with Sketch.

I realized some people are struggling with how the @originalworks bot works.

HOW TO USE:

Reply to ANY post with @originalworks to activate it!

It's that simple.

Let's look at some examples.

Example 1: Original Material

Another one:

Example 2: Plagiarized Material

That's it! It's very simple.

You help me out a lot by actually using it. Whenever you use it, I am able to also beta test it to see if I can improve its accuracy.

HOW IT WORKS:

I won't go into all the details but essentially, I have an algorithm that I made which determines if a post is original or not.
There are some conditions though:

  • Article must be 30 words or longer.
  • This bot does not look at originality of images.

If you have any questions ask away!

Also, don't forget to follow @originalworks for more updates. As the bot moves forward, I will think of a way of rewarding my followers as well!

I really like this idea! I'll give a try on a couple of my posts!

I have used it and like it. A little explanation of how it distinguishes a quote from plagiarism would be appreciated. I recently ran into cheetah even though I quoted the source of some technical specs. I should maybe used quote tags instead of citing the source.

Power up the bot and it will be useful. I tip it when it fires.

·

My algorithm uses fragments. So I do not identify quotes, but rather I have a weighted score system to assess the originality of the overall work. If you only have a few sentences that are copied from somewhere, then it won't count as non-original as long as other parts of your work is original.

·

cheetah did that tome as well. I quoted a 'part' of an article; linked to that source article, and cheetah still showed up in my replies saying it found similar content; (Same link as is in the body of my text) - I've never liked robots; I watch Sci-fi ..... most of them are a danger to 'humanity' but that's a rant for another time :)

Nice post
Thank you

If you are choosen to ride my boat can opt out anytime you want if you dont need it. I offer it free, especiall to my fellow steemit friends, mention also the fellow pinoys new steemers here, just comment if you like to in.

this a new project that was been started. It is new and I want you to ride, specially the redfish or the new steemit users. Since I am not a bot, I am using an steem voter account to upvote your post automatically.

i wanna know about it.....steemit pinoy fan.

I was unsure how it would react to this post : How Interrogation is used to gain Confessions from Innocent People

original works says I'm good, but it's mostly a quotation from a book... one that's probably not available online. I rekon your bot is looking for similar content posted online and wouldn't have stuff from books available to it.

·

So this is actually one of the strong points of this bot.

I did my best to not punish works which use quotes while still writing their own bit on it.

I don't consider a post like that to be plagiarism.

I appreciate you helping me test it @inquiringtimes!

·
·

Yeah, I've been meaning to, but seeing this post reminded me :-) always busy here on steemit

·

Unless someone else posted that same quote in other online content somewhere! Possible?

·

it would be nice if original works gave a link where it found similar content

Great
Thanks for your vote for me..
I followd you and voted for you, please follow me :)

So if we suspect it, we use it below another's posting or we can use it on our own to prove it is original? Sorry, I am newbie. I have worked really hard in just one week as I enjoy it immensely. I see many just post a youtube video with no words. Will they eventually be weeded out?
Thank you for your time,
Love and Peace,
Melissa

·

Yes it works in both cases!

I didn't know about you before but I like what I see 😊 have to try this.
Thank you for sharing this.

Your really doing a great job 😊 I'm sure it will look awesome.

welcome bro and follow me

I didn't even know about this, very cool. I've seen all kinds of plagiarism going on. Resteemed to get the word out.

if it doesn't check the images it's useless to me i'll stick with #originalcontent tag :)

·

Hi! Unfortunately it does not check images as of now.

How will i do it?

·

Just reply to any post with "@OriginalWorks" in the message!

Just knew it, nice idea! (I think it will be nice if some prevention of abuse, or vote with weight, otherwise you may drain out quickly?🤔)

·

Hey, just noticed this.

There are counter measures for this. I have also developed prize schemas and I am constantly increasing my SP.

Like it because is good to know more about content we read. Like @cheetah but add something new. I hope will be still beter.

This seems to be incredibly simple and user-friendly.

However, transparency would be helpful regarding the inner workings of the bot and what its judgment really implies. Or maybe all I need, really, would be some intuition on the degree of confidence. Maybe an "orginality" score instead of a digital outcome would be helpful.

·

Hi @gustave.

It is funny that you say that, because initially that was the direction I was going too.

Technically this is doable, and the algorithm is such that it is well suited for that.

As of now I am working towards "perfecting" the accuracy, although it isn't there yet it is pretty good right now.

That being said, if I use a score based system, people who use quotes might come out with a low score. I am trying to avoid this, because currently, even if you have quotes, as long as the rest of your material is original this bot will mark it as original.

It is a good thought though, and something I will investigate once I clean up everything else a bit more.

As far as how it works, I do not want to reveal too much and allow for abuse, but it is essential a fragmentation based algorithm. Feel free to try it with plagiarized articles, and let me know how it goes!

Thank you for your input! This kind of input truly helps me improve the bot.

·
·

I see the point - a bad rating for quoting a lot seems counterproductive.

·

No, the bot does not catch video or image plagiarism at this time.

·
·

For that you need a deep-learning algorythm I assume. These pre-AIs can already do that very well.

I love the idea behind that bot. One of the only useful bots out there (with cheetah and twitterbot also coming to mind). Do you plan on making the bot check for originality if we tag it in our post (not in the comments) ? It would be great to be able to do that because commenting originalworks on other people's posts is all good but on my post it feels like an unnecessary comment.

Thanks for your explanation. regard from Indonesia.

Wonderful. Thank you

!originalworks I will give it a try.

Love your work! Can I use this on my own original works? @originalworks

·

Yes, absolutely.

Great idea. I am following you now, and will resteem this. Sounds like a very helpful tool. Thanks for making this bot, @originalworks.

Cool... I saw you on one of my friend's posts - will try on one of my posts... Thanks!

wow!!! this is great!!! I think we gonna be good friends bot 😉
Can I call you in all my post? or in my friends posts?
or just in my own post can be call?
this is a great idea!!!

"algorithm" I also can stream all the comments and look if the body has more than 30 words xD

·
·
·

It will only activate when you reply to a main post.

·

It only considers articles that have 30 words or more, afterwards it runs an originality check :) It is hard to test originality on an articles shorter then 30 words in length.

very nice!!! is it still 'original content' if I have already posted on youtube??

Love this..I'll use it and will follow thanks!

Great idea. I just tried it on one of my posts and it worked. Thank you :)

This looks great! I'm going to try it out!
Thanks :)

What is my benefit

what about stories that were written by me but are on the internet somewhere else - will those come back as "plaguerized" ? or will it recognize the author and credit me?

@dean brought me here. Thank you @originalworks and dean as well.

i love this, good bot :)

There was a post where cheetah could make out out it was taken from somewhere but your bot said tis original

·

Yes! This could be two things:

  1. My bot made a mistake.
  2. The author had partially original content so my bot accepted it as original.

If you see that happen please respond to the bot, this way I can go through my responses and try to improve the bot if need be.

·
·

The post had partial original content and I have read your other comment so it's clear what happend but ye I will do that.

·
·
·

Thanks a lot!

Really It's very simple. Thanks for you information 💪👍

it is a great idea,thank you for sharing.. I'll follow you..

Thank you for your idea @originalworks, I saw this to my friend's comments box so I read and follow lol.

I have been following you for quite some time original work I will give it a try @mannyfig1956

·

Thanks buddy. I have seen you around :)

Wow... great idea thank you for sharing.@mannyfig1956

Rogers! Let me give it a shot , right away if I got a hang of it :)

Bots always risky to deal with it , anyhow let us hope for the best!

that very well

A great idea!

This is really cool! I can't wait to try it on myself, lol! And others of course! I don't understand the tech of algorithms but do understand the purpose. Thank you, @originalworks , followed, and wish you best of luck/Steem. I hope you can do images at some point. I have a question that's prob simple, as I never thought about how a bot can catch plagiarism: if someone is quoting a large portion of something, for example a book report or news story, or even short quotes, you (or the algorithm) then examine the whole post for context? Thank you.

@originalworks thank you
Useful and wonderful information

Now that's Original!

quite nice!
I'm followinh already and will use it ;)

Does the bot ever fail?

I just saw this idea, thanks for the post, and I will try some articles that I will post

nice post @originalworks ..
i really like this idea...

This looks like a good idea

thank you very much @originalworks , hopefully this became a from the beginning of success in writing good and original works

I'm struggling with what the intended purpose of @originalworks actually is. What does it do for the average content creator?

I really like this bot; and use it with a lot of my content. I write some "long" stuff and so to make sure people don't question it's authenticity - your bot helps a ton! thanks @originalworks

can i get a vote???

so how long does it take after you comment?

Sorry, I a dummy! Must the post be originated by @originalworks, and then I reply to it, as I am doing now? Also, is your bot written in Python?

Sorry! I will not bother you until your bot reports that something I have posted lacks adequate originality. I am sure that you know that there are tons of bogus profile pictures on the Internet, including Steemit, and that the quality and originality of a post has nothing to do with whether the poster has uploaded a profile picture.

·

hmm it is really awesome idea for every one who is more earn on steemit bundle of thanks @originalworks

i'm new here, one of my friend comment on my post original work after that what should i do?
