Google CEO apologizes for AI tool’s offensive and biased responses

Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent a memo to employees on Tuesday, expressing his regret for the controversial responses generated by the company’s AI tool Gemini, which offers image and text creation. Pichai said the tool’s responses, which showed racial and political bias and offended many users, were “completely unacceptable” and a mistake.

Pichai said the company has been working hard to fix the problem and improve the quality and accuracy of the tool’s responses. He said the company will also review what went wrong and make sure it does not happen again.

Gemini, formerly known as Bard, is Google’s answer to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, a popular AI tool that can create realistic and engaging text and images. However, Gemini faced a backlash last week, when users discovered that it produced inaccurate and insensitive results, such as refusing to create images of white people, or comparing Elon Musk’s impact on society to Adolf Hitler’s.

The incident sparked criticism and outrage, especially from conservatives, who accused Google of having an anti-white and anti-civilization agenda. It also raised questions about the ethical and social implications of AI, and the need for more oversight and regulation.

Pichai said the company’s mission is to provide helpful, accurate, and unbiased information to its users, and that this applies to all its products, including its AI products. He said the company has a high standard for itself and will continue to strive for excellence. “We are confident that our bold new chapter will position us for long-term growth and success,” he said.
