It may seem surprising that a page like this would exist on this blog. After all, this is a blog on data science and A.I. Well, regardless of our field, we all need to write from time to time, be it for a blog, a report, or even the documentation that accompanies our work. Since writing in a grammatically correct way, void of typos doesn't come naturally to most of us, an online service like Grammarly can come in handy.
I was recommended this service about a year back by a fellow writer. Although my texts were pretty decent, I found that I'd still make some mistakes from time to time, or build sentences that weren't easy to follow. So, I took up the suggestion and started using Grammarly for some of my articles. The result in terms of engagement was evident from the very beginning. As a result, I've been using Grammarly ever since. At the same time, it's now part of my pipeline when it comes to publishing articles on this blog.
So, when I promote this service, it's out of my empirical understanding of its value and an appreciation of the tech behind it. For example, did you know that it uses deep learning and natural language processing (NLP) on the back-end? It also evaluates text based on different styles and objectives, giving you an overall score, all while pinpointing errors and points of improvement. For each one of these mistakes, it provides suggestions of how you can correct them and a rationale so that you learn from them. What more can you ask for?
