(Natural News) Shares in Alphabet, the parent company of Google, fell by 7.7 percent on Wednesday, causing it to lose a remarkable $100 billion from its market value after its new AI chatbot gave an inaccurate response to a question in a public demo this week.
Google’s new AI chatbot tool, which is known as Bard, has not been released to the public yet but had been the subject of significant hype – at least until the disastrous demo that the company posted on Twitter this week.
In the demo, a user asks Bard the question: “What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9 year old about?”
The AI tool then gives the user a response that contains several bullet points about the telescope. One of them claims: “JWST took the very first pictures of a planet outside of our own solar system.”
However, NASA reports that the first image of a planet beyond our own solar system, known as an exoplanet, was not taken by the James Webb Space Telescope. Instead, it was taken by the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope back in 2004.
This very public embarrassment highlights Google’s struggle to keep up with the AI technology ChatGPT that is getting a lot of positive attention for its rivals. ChatGPT can be used to create responses to questions that people typically search for using Google, as well as essays and even song lyrics. It is enjoying a sudden surge in popularity that reportedly spurred Google’s management to push its own version out as soon as possible.
Google’s event took place just a day after Microsoft had announced it would be powering its search engine Bing with a more advanced rendition of the artificial intelligence used by ChatGPT.
In law pictures are of real things, images are representations of imagined things. NASA had to correct the record because they only have images, no pictures.
