What has AI to say about this
Quote
Perplexity and burstiness are two measures used by AI detectors to determine the likelihood of a text being AI-generated.

1. Perplexity: Perplexity is a measure of how well a language model can predict the next word in a sequence of words. It quantifies how "surprised" the model is when encountering the actual next word. Lower perplexity indicates that the model can better predict the next word and understand the context accurately. In the context of AI detectors, if the perplexity of a given text is low, it suggests that the language in the text aligns with what AI models have been trained on, indicating a higher likelihood of being AI-generated.

2. Burstiness: Burstiness refers to the distribution of words or phrases in a text. AI detectors analyze the frequency of words or phrases appearing in short periods of time within the text. If the text exhibits a bursty pattern, meaning it contains repetitions or a sudden high concentration of certain words or phrases, it indicates a higher likelihood of being generated by an AI system. Burstiness occurs because language models often generate text by copying and repeating chunks of text they have seen during the training process.

By combining these two factors, AI detectors can assess the similarity between the analyzed text and the patterns typically generated by AI language models, helping to identify the presence of AI-generated content.

Perplexity refers to how well a language model can predict the next word in a sequence of words. It measures how surprised the model is when it encounters new text. If a text has low perplexity, it means that the language model finds the text more predictable and therefore, potentially more likely to be AI-generated.

Burstiness, on the other hand, refers to the statistical distribution of words in a text. It measures how frequently certain words or phrases occur in a given context. AI-generated text often has low burstiness because the language models tend to generate text that is diverse and less repetitive.

In summary, perplexity and burstiness are metrics that help AI detectors determine the likelihood of a text being AI-generated. Low perplexity and burstiness suggest a higher probability of AI involvement.

Here we see the importance of a good ad-blocker to prevent connecting to a PUP-redirect (S.BL.Domain.gen)
on a normally non-malicious website:

Another ad block test at Toolz here: https://d3ward.github.io/toolz/adblock.html   (site OK).

But there also are test sites that themselves are being blocked as malicious, see this one :
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/5e277db1e13d06cb4b6945270952ca00c034c44b9b88f45c83e8533b93aa4c22
Also see on IP: https://www.shodan.io/host/104.21.94.34 e.g. Cloudflare driven WP site.
But noy all scans agree: https://quttera.com/detailed_report/canyoublockit.com

So on the Interwebz it is not always clear from the start, where eventual malware etc. may raise it's ugly head or may not. ;)

I performed a Word Press Security scan here: https://hackertarget.com/wordpress-security-scan/
on Homepage - Die Unbestechlichen -> 10 issues

Outdated CMS version + 8 outdated WP plug-ins.

User enumeration possible.  External links checked against multiple blacklists,

Scan your WP website and feel more secure.

You're welcome, bob3160.

Something from Google to be introduced in the European Union = Google Chrome to display "choose your search engine" prompt

Re: https://www.ghacks.net/2023/12/09/google-chrome-to-display-choose-your-search-engine-prompt/

I use DDG and Quant for my search queries - chrome://settings/searchEngines in my browser.
- Avoid to search using www dot oscobo dot com, while Avast flags this engine as unsafe.

I check my English grammar and spelling with Quillbot active (a form of AI).

Have a nice Sunday, Bob,
