    AI Writing Assistant

    Our Citation Generator is also an AI writer. Petal AI can help you write and cite your paper using sources you specify. Upload references, specify key points to cover, and let the AI create a draft using data you provide.

    Petal AI builds upon OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model to enable “context aware” workflows, so you can trust the AI to only draw information from source you provide.
