Google Addresses Concerns Over Gemini AI

Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently addressed concerns regarding the company’s Gemini AI tool, acknowledging that some of its responses were “biased” and “completely unacceptable.” Last week, Google halted the tool’s usage after inaccuracies were found in historical depictions it generated.

Pichai emphasized that the company is diligently working to rectify these issues, with teams working tirelessly to improve the tool’s responses. He assured employees that steps are being taken to address the bias and offence caused by certain responses.

“Our teams have been working around the clock to address these issues. We’re already seeing a substantial improvement on a wide range of prompts… And we’ll review what happened and make sure we fix it at scale,” Pichai stated.

The decision to pause the use of the Gemini AI tool underscores Google’s commitment to maintaining high standards of accuracy and fairness in its AI technologies.

The company aims to relaunch Gemini AI in the coming weeks, with plans to address the shortcomings highlighted by recent events. The news, initially reported by Semafor, was later confirmed by a Google spokesperson.

Google’s pursuit of AI innovation has intensified since the launch of Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s ChatGPT in November 2022. In response, Google introduced Bard, a generative AI chatbot, which was rebranded as Gemini earlier this month. The updated version offered paid subscription plans, promising enhanced reasoning capabilities from the AI model.

Additionally, Google struck a deal with Reddit to utilize its content for training AI models. The contract, valued at approximately $60 million per year.
