Gemini AI Blunders Have Been Called Out By Google CEO Pichai

By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 29 February 2024

Google CEO Sundar Pichai criticized the Gemini AI software's errors on Tuesday, pointing out that the app had to exclude users from making photographs of humans due to errors such depictions of ethnically diverse World War II Nazi forces.

In a message to colleagues that the news website Semafor published, Pichai stated, "I want to address the recent issues with problematic text and image responses in the Gemini app."

I am aware that several of its replies have insulted and displayed bias toward our users; to be clear, that is totally unacceptable, and we made a mistake, he continued.

Within weeks of Google's widely publicized renaming of their ChatGPT-style AI as "Gemini," the debate surfaced. Gemini-generated photos of historically wrong US senators from the 1800s, including women and people of color, drew mockery and criticism from social media users.

In India, IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw issued a warning last Monday, saying that the government will "not tolerate" any racial or other prejudices in the operation of AI-based platforms, only days after Gemini faced harsh criticism for its unfounded claims in answer to a question about Prime Minister Modi.

The authenticity of Sundar Pichai's message to colleagues was verified by a Google representative for AFP.

Google Gemini AI Failures Are Not Tolerable Says CEO. Google's teams are working "around the clock," according to Pichai, to resolve these problems. However, he did not specify when the image-generating tool will be back online. Even at this early stage of the industry's growth, no AI is flawless, but we know the bar is high for us, and we will keep trying for as long as it takes, the author said.
