Evaluating Cognitive Maps & Planning in LLMs with CogEval

TLDR: We tested planning in 8 LLMs (GPT-4, 3.5, 3, LLama2, Alpaca, Claude-v1, Bard, Cohere) and identified failures like hallucinating invalid paths/falling in loops. The evidence does not support emergent zero-shot planning in LLMs.

New discovery today! We found Pirak Mound site perfectly depicted on this 1928 . This site, located on the Kachi-Bolan region of Baluchistan (Pakistan), was in the 1960-70s by French-Pakistani teams and was dated to circa 1700-700 BC.
