Google makes 'technical improvements' to AI-generated search summaries after outlandish answers went viral

| @indiablooms | 01 Jun 2024, 06:14 pm

California/IBNS: American tech giant Google on Friday said that it had made "more than a dozen technical improvements" to its artificial intelligence (AI) systems after its retooled search engine was found spitting out erroneous information, reports said.

According to reports, Google unleashed a makeover of its search engine in mid-May that frequently provides AI-generated summaries on top of search results, and soon after, social media users began sharing screenshots of its most outlandish answers.

The California-headquartered tech major has largely defended its AI overviews feature, saying it is typically accurate and was tested extensively beforehand.

In a Google blog post on Friday, head of the company's search business But Liz Reid acknowledged that "some odd, inaccurate or unhelpful AI Overviews certainly did show up."
