Google’s new AI feature will suggest corrections for bad grammar in Google Docs -- but it’s making our memories lazy.
Soon there will be no excuse for bad grammar.
Google is adding a grammar check feature to Google Docs to correct even the most complicated errors, the company announced on Tuesday.
The new feature, available exclusively to businesses first before launching publically in the coming weeks, will tap the same AI tech that’s used for Google’s translation features to suggest grammatical corrections.
“Our AI can catch several different types of corrections, from simple grammatical rules like how to use articles in a sentence (like “a” versus “an”), to more complicated grammatical concepts such as how to use subordinate clauses correctly. Machine learning will help improve this capability over time to detect trickier grammar issues,” Google wrote in a blog post.
The tool could help save your career. Mistakes on resumes are the No. 1 way to cost you a job opportunity, after all, as 61% of recruiters will reject a resume or CV if they catch errors, job site CareerBuilder reported. And better grammar could also get you better pay.
