Discovering the Hidden Vocabulary of DALLE-2

1 Jun 2022  ·  Giannis Daras, Alexandros G. Dimakis ·

We discover that DALLE-2 seems to have a hidden vocabulary that can be used to generate images with absurd prompts. For example, it seems that \texttt{Apoploe vesrreaitais} means birds and \texttt{Contarra ccetnxniams luryca tanniounons} (sometimes) means bugs or pests. We find that these prompts are often consistent in isolation but also sometimes in combinations. We present our black-box method to discover words that seem random but have some correspondence to visual concepts. This creates important security and interpretability challenges.
