Google AI Search: Glue Pizza, Eat Rocks

Google's new AI search feature, "AI Overviews," is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.


Users have reported bizarre and inaccurate answers, like recommending "non-toxic glue" to make cheese stick to pizza and suggesting humans eat one rock per day. These odd responses seem to be pulled from satirical sources like Reddit and The Onion.


Despite the viral mockery on social media, Google insists these are isolated incidents. A spokesperson stated, "The vast majority of AI overviews provide high-quality information." The company is working on refining its systems to prevent such errors.

Google's AI journey has been rocky before. Earlier this year, its chatbot Gemini was paused due to controversial responses, and its predecessor, Bard, also faced a rough start.


Launched in April for UK users and in mid-May for US users, AI Overviews aims to summarise search results, saving users from scrolling through endless websites. However, its credibility is under scrutiny, especially given Google's dominance in the search engine market, holding over 90% of the global share.


The tech world is watching closely as Google navigates these AI challenges. Rivals like Microsoft and OpenAI are also facing backlash for their AI innovations, highlighting the industry's growing pains.


In conclusion, while AI-driven search is touted as the future, it must earn users' trust by delivering accurate and reliable information. Until then, we might want to double-check our search results before gluing pizza or munching on rocks!
