OpenAI co-founder John Schulman notes two new Word features that use generative AI to modify text directly after it has been pasted into an existing document. Specifically, Schulman describes “paste and paraphrase,” which means indirectly reproducing text content from your clipboard. “Paste and match writing style” would ensure that the paraphrased content fits well with the existing content.
This feature could be useful and legally safe if you want to include content from your own older articles in a new article, but do not want to copy it verbatim, for example, in the case of references to existing content. Both features are “coming soon to your favorite word processor,” Schulman writes. It is not clear from Schulman’s post whether this is a concrete project or just a conceptual consideration.
