Google says Gemini AI glitches were product of effort to address 'traps'

Google stopped its AI from generating images of people after it was found to have made ahistorical pictures such as people of color as Nazis.
The Iran Project : Google apologized Friday for a series of public mishaps by its artificial intelligence tool Gemini, which was denounced by some users this week after it generated historically inaccurate images such as nonwhite Nazi soldiers.

According to The Iran Project,The company said in a blog post that it was still working on a fix for the app and was continuing to temporarily block the creation of new images of people until a solution is in place. 

“It’s clear that this feature missed the mark,” Prabhakar Raghavan, a senior vice president at Google, wrote in the blog post. 

“Some of the images generated are inaccurate or even offensive. We’re grateful for users’ feedback and are sorry the feature didn’t work well,” he wrote. 

Gemini is primarily a conversational AI app competing with OpenAI’s ChatGPT to explore the possibilities of generative AI, including using text prompts to create images. Google, under pressure from investors and others, had worked on similar ideas internally for years and released its app, initially called Bard, after ChatGPT unexpectedly took off in popularity starting in late 2022. 

But images from Gemini became the subject of mockery on social media after people posted examples of ahistorical images. They included illustrations of World War II German soldiers who were Black or Asian, despite the racist ideology of the Nazi military and government. The app also created images of nonwhite American Founding Fathers, when in reality they were all white men.
