This writing aid is AWESOME… Finally, a writing coach with a brain…. AI at its best (and simplest)…  This writing support app shows you where to trim the fat and where to drop in those strong verbs. The algorithm for smart editing seems to be rather simple, probably a readability test with some maximum sentence length. Yet, is it is quite effective… Try it now online.

It forced me to replace the verbose academese in this paragraph:

The edited volume will gather seminal contributions that may set up guidelines or propose heuristic principles for activities related to the ethical issues involved in collecting, processing, analyzing, and disseminating results related to big data projects. The guidelines and principles will shape future research, the design of new practices, or will shape tool development.
