Workaround for AI hallucination: Make them sound less sure

 At work I asked our Confluence (wiki) AI, "What does BADF stand for?" It answered

BAMDF stands for Bidder Advertiser Metadata Framework

But I couldn't find “Bidder Advertiser” anywhere in our wiki.

It turns out this was completely wrong. My coworkers told me it actually stands for "Binary Augmented MDF".

To work around the hallucination problem, maybe AIs should prefix everything they say with “I think that...” or  “It seems to me that…” instead of sounding 100% certain all the time.
