Writefull, a Deep-Learning-Based Writing Tool For Authors, Joins Digital Science

From Digital Science:

Writefull helps authors improve the clarity of their work. It suggests improvements to grammar and spelling, and to academic language usage, such as sentence structures in scientific writing, discipline-specific vocabulary, and appropriate word choice. These suggestions are based on real-world, context-specific usage rather than on a fixed set of grammatical rules.

Winner of a 2016 Digital Science Catalyst Grant, Writefull has been supported in their development from an early stage idea to a high-growth potential company, and is the first significant investment in AI by Digital Science. Writefull’s Deep Learning models have learned from billions of sentences taken from the scientific literature, making it very different from the standard rules-based grammar applications.
