Established in 2020 by the Lebanese-American entrepreneur May Habib, alongside CTO Waseem Alshikh, Writer offers businesses a solution to produce uniform and inclusive content, spanning social media updates, job ads, product information, and emails. This is realized using large language models (LLMs) – the bedrock of generative AI innovations. Importantly, Writer is committed to ensuring it doesn't leverage client data in its training processes, underlining its emphasis on security, data protection, and adherence to regulations.

In a noteworthy move earlier in 2023, Writer unveiled a complimentary tool designed to ascertain if textual content was crafted by AI systems, like OpenAI's ChatGPT. Although the tool's precision wasn't revealed then, Writer has established itself as a comprehensive generative AI suite for businesses, offering solutions in significantly less time than traditional methods.
