Concerned about fake news, Google stops its AI chatbot Gemini from responding to inquiries on elections

Share

<p>Google (GOOGL.O), an Alphabet-owned company, said on Tuesday that it is limiting AI chatbot Gemini’s ability to respond to inquiries about the upcoming worldwide elections in an effort to prevent any possible blunders in the technology’s implementation.</p>

<p>The upgrade is released at a time when the public’s worries about false information and fake news have been heightened by advances in generative AI, including the creation of images and videos, leading governments to regulate the technology.</p>
<p>Regarding elections, like the one that will take place in the United States in which Joe Biden and Donald Trump will face off for the presidency, Gemini says, “I’m still learning how to answer this question.” For now, try using Google Search. In December, Google made an announcement about limits in the United States, stating that they would take effect before the election.</p>
<p>A firm representative said on Tuesday, “We are restricting the types of election-related queries for which Gemini will return responses in preparation for the many elections happening around the world in 2024 and out of an abundance of caution.”</p>
<p>In addition to the US, a number of other nations, including South Africa and India, the biggest democracy in the world, will have national elections. Before making “unreliable” or experimental AI tools available to the public, India has requested that tech companies get government clearance and mark the products as potentially incorrect.</p>
<p>Google had to halt the chatbot’s ability to generate images late last month due to errors in some historical person representations produced by Gemini, which has since brought criticism to its AI products. CEO Sundar Pichai referred to the chatbot’s replies as “biased” and “completely unacceptable,” and said that the business was trying to address such problems.</p>
<p>The company that owns Facebook, Meta Platforms, said last month that it would build a team to combat misinformation and the misuse of generative AI in the lead-up to the June elections for the European Parliament.</p>
