AI Chatbots are Hallucinating?

An overstatement,  but since they are based on human language data input, always possible.  As in anything written by a human generator.    Caution required as to source and the place and risk of use. 


Google Vice President Warns That AI Chatbots Are Hallucinating  in CACM

By IFLScience, February 15, 2023

A hallucinating AI, as drawn by an AI generator. 

Speaking to German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, Google vice president Prabhakar Raghavan warned that users may be delivered complete nonsense by chatbots, despite answers seeming coherent.

Google is set to launch its own rival to OpenAI's ChatGPT, a language model that can answer your questions and queries. Named Bard, the chatbot will roll out to the public in the coming weeks according to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. 

Ahead of the launch, Google demonstrated the powers of Bard in a promo video. Unfortunately, people noticed that the chatbot – a scaled-down version of their Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) which convinced one engineer it was sentient – came up with incorrect statements about the JWST. 

Bard claimed that the JWST was the first telescope to take pictures of planets outside of the solar system, even though the first image was produced by the Very Large Telescope in 2004, almost two decades before JWST began its work.
