    Google Apologizes for Hurting White Peoples’ Feelings – By Jody Serrano (Gizmodo) / Feb 23, 2024

    The company apologized for the historically inaccurate images created its Gemini AI chatbot that went viral this week.

    Google apologized on Friday saying its team “got it wrong” with a new image generation feature for its Gemini AI chatbot after various images it created that were devoid of white people went viral. A company exec firmly denied that it purposefully wanted Gemini to refuse to create images of any particular group of people.

    “This wasn’t what we intended. We did not want Gemini to refuse to create images of any particular group. And we did not want it to create inaccurate historical—or any other—images,” Google senior vice president Prabhakar Raghavan said.

    In a blog post, Raghavan—who oversees the areas of the company that bring in most of its money, including Google Search and its ads business—plainly admitted that Gemini’s image generator “got it wrong” and that the company would try to do better. Many people were outraged over Gemini’s historically inaccurate images of Black Nazi soldiers and Black Vikings as well as its apparent refusal to generate images of white people, which some considered racist.
