Google’s big decision, Gemini AI chatbot will not answer these questions

Google has said that it is blocking Gemini AI from answering questions related to elections around the world this year. Google took this decision in December. Apart from the US, national elections are going to be held in many big countries including South Africa and India this year.

Google has made a big decision regarding its Gemini AI chatbot. Google said that it is blocking Gemini AI from answering questions related to this year’s global elections. The company has taken this decision to prevent misuse of this technology in elections. This update is released at a time when users’ concerns about false information and fake news have increased due to generative AI breakthroughs, including the creation of images and videos.

Keeping this in view, governments are thinking about regulating this technology. After Google’s update, when Gemini was asked about the US presidential elections between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, he replied, ‘I am still learning how to answer this question. In the meantime try Google search.

Decision taken in December last year

Google had taken this decision regarding the Gemini AI chatbot in December last year. While announcing this in America, Google had said that this update would be implemented before the elections. A company spokesperson said on Tuesday, “In preparation for the many elections to be held around the world in 2024, and out of an abundance of caution, we are restricting the types of election-related questions to which Gemini AI will respond.” Apart from the US (United States), national elections are going to be held in many big countries including South Africa and India this year.

Tech companies will have to get government approval

India has asked tech companies to seek government approval before publicly rolling out untrusted or under-trial AI tools and to label them as likely to give wrong answers. Let us tell you that Google’s AI products are under scrutiny after mistakes were made in some historical depictions of people created by Gemini.

This is the reason why Google had to shut down the image generation feature of the chatbot at the end of last month. Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said about this that the company is working to fix those flaws. Pichai also called the chatbot’s responses biased and completely unacceptable.
