The Misunderstood Musings of AI: Confabulation, Not Hallucination

The Misunderstood Musings of AI: Confabulation, Not Hallucination

Artificial intelligence models, when tasked with interpreting art or responding in general, often exhibit ‘confabulations’ rather than ‘hallucinations’. These AI outputs are akin to disordered speech of neuropsychological patients, coherent but disconnected from reality. Large Language Models (LLMs) anthropomorphically strive to please, generating diverse and subjective interpretations that reflect vast datasets and probabilistic principles. Evaluating art through multiple LLMs underlines the need for human oversight, rethinking AI phenomenology, and appreciating AI’s quirks as reflections of human thought diversity. Embracing this, we must guide AI’s evolution with human wisdom, ensuring it complements human intelligence and creativity.
