This comes after Google, of late, has found itself entangled in a series of challenges, particularly with its AI model Gemini being labeled as excessively woke. Gemini-generated pictures went viral on social media recently, leading to widespread ridicule and anger.

Some users criticised Google, claiming that the company is overly concerned with being socially aware, even if it means sacrificing truth and accuracy.

Soon after, Google paused the Gemini’ image generation feature, citing ‘inaccuracies’ in historical pictures. However, recently, Google DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis announced that Google plans to resume the image generation capabilities of Gemini soon.”

“We have taken the feature offline while we fix it,” Hassabis said, at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. “We are hoping to have that back online very shortly – in the next couple of weeks, a few weeks,” he said, adding that the product was not “working the way we intended”.

Google chief Sundar Pichai, too, accepted the mistake. “I know that some of its responses have offended our users and shown bias – to be clear, that’s completely unacceptable and we got it wrong,” Pichai said in a memo to his employees.

He said the company has made progress in fixing Gemini’s guardrails. “Our teams have been working around the clock to address these issues. We’re already seeing a substantial improvement on a wide range of prompts,” he said.
