The Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is seeking industry partners to develop and commercialize its new system that uses public key cryptography to detect artificial intelligence-generated text.
According to a notice on SAM.gov, LLNL’s new invention can be used to validate human-generated content by producing an anonymized digital signature attached to the text as metadata, which can be checked by third-party websites for verification.
The tool works to help detect AI-generated text to prevent cheating on essay assignments for educational and evaluation purposes and automate human-input verification for search engines and web forms.
The fully anonymized platform can also be connected to a fingerprint scanner or other biometrics in select applications for identity verification.
LLNL has filed for patent protection on the new technology.
Companies interested in commercializing the novel system have until July 8 to respond to the notice.
