Google Halts Image Generation of People by Gemini AI Model Due to Inaccuracies

Google Gemini

Google is temporarily halting its AI tool that generates images of people due to inaccuracies found in certain historical depictions created by the model. This represents the latest setback in the efforts of Alphabet (Google) to compete with rivals such as OpenAI and Microsoft.

Earlier this month, Google introduced image generation capabilities through its Gemini AI models. However, in recent days, several users on social media have raised concerns, noting that the model occasionally produces historical images that are inaccurate.

“We’re aware that Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions,” Google had said on Wednesday.

Since the launch OpenAI’s ChatGPT in November 2022, Google has been in a competitive race to develop AI software that can rival what the Microsoft-backed company has presented.

A year ago, Google launched its generative AI chatbot Bard, and during that release, the company disseminated misleading information about images of a planet beyond the Earth’s solar system in a promotional video. This led to a decline in shares, dropping as much as 9%.

Earlier this month, Bard underwent a rebranding as Gemini, coinciding with Google’s introduction of paid subscription plans. Users now have the option to select these plans for enhanced reasoning capabilities from the AI model.

“Historical contexts have more nuance to them and we will further tune to accommodate that,” said, opens new tab Jack Krawczyk, Senior Director of Product for Gemini at Google, on Wednesday.
