The prospect of an AI tool that could learn from my blog and writing style and then write like me was tantalising. So, when I was being aggressively advertised reword.com – my curiosity was peaked.
Sadly, reword is a typical GPT wrapper. It’s a great idea, but it’s not anything special. It’s akin to those GPT wrapping tools that allow you to ask questions about PDF files and other forms of days with a fancy UI.
The biggest problem with Reword is the cost. It is almost $60 AUD monthly, considerably more than I pay for a ChatGPT and Midjourney subscription combined.
If you want AI to write like you, you already have a considerably cheaper option called ChatGPT.
AI learning your writing style can be done using stylometric analysis. Something that GPT-4 is very adept at doing. I imagine this is what Reword is doing, too. Provide some samples of your writing or upload a file to the Advanced Data Analysis plugin and ask it to perform a stylometric analysis and write you a reusable text prompt.
I am unsure what techniques Reword employs or if they use some form of GPT fine-tuning. Something tells me the service is a little more simplistic than that, but I could be wrong. If you want to train AI to write like you for a lot less, OpenAI now allows you to fine-tune GPT-3.5.
It’s a good idea, but it’s priced way too high for what it is. If Reword wants to succeed, it needs a plan that is at least half the cost of what they’re asking for now.
