Google’s BARD provided inaccurate information

BARD developed by Google Inc in order to take on Open AI’s ChatGPT delivered inaccurate information in its promotional video.During regular trading hours on February 8, the company’s shares fell 7.8 percent on the Nasdaq exchange, and after-hours trading was largely flat.

Reuters discovered the error just hours before Bard’s launch event in Paris. The chatbot responds to a question about what to tell a 9-year-old about new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in the video, saying that the JWST was used to take pictures of a planet outside the Milky Way. This is not right.

The chatbot was created to compete with Microsoft’s ground-breaking AI chatbot, ChatGPT, which aims to simplify complex topics. However, Google seems to have created a competitor too quickly.

In general, AI systems have a long way to go before they can be integrated into business operations and replace jobs. The risks of plagiarism, skewed results and inaccurate solutions remain.
