Google's Generative AI Crisis

Google's Generative AI Crisis

The intensely competitive race to produce ever more powerful generative AI models has created challenges for the world's most sophisticated technology companies. Extraordinary technological breakthroughs must balance fast delivery with safety and trust concerns. The latest to fall to this challenge is Google with the disastrous launch of its Gemini model last month.

The Gemini model was a significant upgrade over Google's earlier Bard offering and was meant as an answer to OpenAI's ChatGPT, Anthropic's Claude, and Microsoft's Copilot. As part of the launch, Google introduced a new image-generating capability. However, within hours, users discovered historical inaccuracies and offensive content that went viral online, and the company pulled the feature shortly afterward. As of this moment, Google is still working on a fix.
