So much of current AI-generated stuff is derivative sludge that I'm enjoying the pockets of weirdness where I find them. One of my favorite things right now: DALL-E3's attempts to label things in the images it generates.
Here I asked "Please generate a cross section of a gourmet chocolate with each layer labeled."
I was thinking, like, three layers tops. But for some reason DALL-E3 generates chocolates of epic proportions. Judging by the size of the almond, I think this chocolate is at least 6 cm on a side, yielding an estimated total weight of over 200 grams (about half a pound).
ChatGPT may be to blame, since it was the interface that passed my prompt to DALL-E3, and suggested "various layers like ganache, caramel, nuts, or fruit fillings". DALL-E3 seems to have taken that as instruction to include them all.
ChatGPT had only suggested "chocolate coating" and "a creamy filling", so there goes that hypothesis about DALL-E trying to include everything on ChatGPT's list. I'm afraid to ask what's in the layer labeled "Lotceate". Or the one labeled "Shocolafablte".
