Google has decided to temporarily halt the Gemini AI model's generation of images depicting people due to concerns over inaccuracies.


Google has decided to pause its AI tool that generates images of people due to concerns over inaccuracies found in some historical depictions produced by the model. This move marks the latest setback in Google’s efforts to compete with rivals like OpenAI and Microsoft in the field of artificial intelligence. The Gemini AI model, which Google introduced earlier this month, has faced criticism on social media for generating historical images that are sometimes inaccurate. Google acknowledged the issue, stating that Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions. Since the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT in November 2022, Google has been striving to develop AI software that can rival its competitors. However, this isn’t the first time Google has faced challenges with its AI technology. Last year, the company’s generative AI chatbot, Bard, received criticism for sharing inaccurate information about pictures of a planet outside the Earth’s solar system in a promotional video, leading to a decline in shares.

Earlier this month, Google rebranded its generative AI chatbot Bard as Gemini and introduced paid subscription plans, offering users enhanced reasoning capabilities from the AI model. However, concerns arose regarding inaccuracies in historical depictions generated by Gemini. Jack Krawczyk, Senior Director of Product for Gemini at Google, stated on Wednesday that historical contexts require more nuance, and they will work to further fine-tune the model to address these concerns.
