Digital Science CEO Conducts AI-Generated Art Experiment

David Ellis, Digital Science’s press, PR, and social manager, writes the following in “The ‘Lone Banana Problem’ Exposes a Basic Failing of AI to Grasp the Real World”:

A child could draw a single banana on a plain background, but try asking an art-generating artificial intelligence (AI) to do it and the results might surprise you!

That’s what happened when Digital Science CEO Dr Daniel Hook undertook a simple test with AI art and asked for “A single banana casting a shadow on a grey background”. Instead, the AI responded with two bananas, every time.

He continued the experiment over a period of weeks, with the AI failing right until the final prompt.

Dr Hook has published the findings of his AI art experiment on Digital Science’s TL;DR blog site—in a piece called “The Lone Banana Problem”.

His post corresponds with Digital Science’s new #MindTheTrustGap campaign. … #MindTheTrustGap is aimed at raising awareness of global issues of trust and integrity in science, innovation and research.
