Google to Take “Swift Action” on AI Overviews

Google to Take "Swift Action" on AI Overviews

Table of content

Examples of Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) reviews quickly spread as the update was rolled out to the public. While the company had to disable AI in some viral queries, Google reiterates that the “vast majority” of AI results are of “high quality.”

Over the past two days, public misinformation about Google’s AI has been discovered, sometimes presenting inaccurate and occasionally dangerous information.

There are several examples, with one prevalent suggestion being that people should put glue on pizza.

Google to Take "Swift Action" on AI Overviews

While this may be a severe suggestion, Google has ceased providing an overview of AI for the query that initially prompted it.

Another serious query we noticed was that the AI Overviews feature no longer shows the temperature at which chicken should be cooked. However, this doesn’t apply across all domains, and it’s worth noting that there won’t be two identical AI overviews.

Often, performing the exact search twice will result in a reformulated response or a focus on a different aspect of the answer.

In a statement to 9to5Google, Google affirmed that it “takes swift action as needed under its content policies” regarding some of these dangerous results.

Google also points out that many of the viral examples circulating are “manipulated” or cannot be reproduced. Ironically, Google points at intentionally misleading information, as AI overviews provide other deliberately misleading information.
