Why are AI images so strange?

If you look at this image long enough, it may make you take ‘paws’ when you notice it’s not quite right…

In this image of a kitty at the computer with giant glowing eyes, you might miss an odd detail that AI was not able to create to match reality, and it’s a common failing during this early phase of AI art. Did you see it yet? Well, if you look at the paw of this image, you can see that the number of digits for this feline are a bit off from the standard and aligned a bit strangely too. This is a very common issue with early AI art right now, extra fingers, extra toes, and extra legs too.

Why are Ai Image so strange? What’s the deal with the extra limbs, tails, fingers, and toes?

AI images can appear strange because they are generated by algorithms that are trained on large amounts of data, but may not always produce results that align with human expectations. This can be due to a variety of factors, such as limitations in the data used to train the algorithm, or the specific parameters and settings used during the generation process. Additionally, some AI image generation models, such as GANs, are designed to generate novel or unexpected results, rather than realistic ones, which can also contribute to the strange or surreal appearance of the generated images.
