Does Shy Editor plagiarize?

Our AI generates responses based on patterns and information from its training data, which includes a mix of licensed data, data created by human trainers, and publicly available data. It does not copy text verbatim from its sources unless specifically asked to generate a direct quote or citation.

However, it is possible that the AI response might occasionally contain sentences that also happen to be on the web, so it’s good practice to check for accuracy and originality, especially if your writing will be used in an academic or professional context where proper attribution is important.
