Antidote offers reformulation using generative AI – CNW Telbec

MONTREAL, Dec. 5, 2023 /CNW/ – Druide IT today deploys its proprietary reformulation engine, the first application of generative artificial intelligence (AI) for Antidote. This new functionality, based on recent advances in major language models, allows users to rephrase entire sentences or even entire paragraphs of their texts.

A new reformulation mode has been added to Antidote Web, accessible via a button or floating icon. In this mode, Antidote can offer up to three different rewordings of the original sentence or paragraph; We choose the one we like the most and insert it directly into the text. Because Antidote interacts directly with a range of web, Windows and Mac software, its reformulations fit naturally, without copying and pasting.

A reformulation regenerates the original sentence by changing its vocabulary or syntactic phrases. This is particularly effective for giving a more natural look to a second language text, such as an English text written by a French speaker. It also helps repair breaks reported by Antidote that indicate possible syntactic errors. With a bilingual subscription, the rewording occurs in both French and English, depending on the language of the original text.

“The clever reformulations enabled by generative AI open up a whole new dimension and take the power of Antidote’s corrector to unprecedented levels,” says Éric Brunelle, President of Druide and lead designer of Antidote. “We are very excited to see how our customers will benefit from this new technology, as we want to develop and develop it further on a regular basis.” »

The reformulation is being offered to the general public through a beta test with Antidote Web at no additional cost. Druide invites all Antidote+ and Antidote Web users to use the reformulation and provide their comments.

Antidote Web is offered as part of the Antidote+ package and as a subscription for organizations. Details can be found at
