Sundar Pichai-led Google defends its AI Overview results that asked people to use glue in pizza
Google now attributes these erroneous results to “data voids” or “information gaps.”

When Google’s AI Overview invited users to eat pebbles or use glue to build cheese sticks on pizza earlier this week, the replies went viral. The goal of Google’s new AI function was to improve search results, but when people asked it strange questions, it started to generate memes. The organisation now attributes these imprecise outcomes to “information gaps” or “data voids.”

Liz Reid, Google’s chief of search, claimed in a blog post that AI Overview “hallucinates” or makes things up. “Misinterpreting queries, misinterpreting a nuance of language on the web, or not having a lot of great information available” are the usual reasons it returns incorrect results.

“We saw AI Overviews that featured troll-like or sarcastic content from discussion forums,” the spokesperson said. Although forums are frequently an excellent place to find real, first-hand knowledge, they can also occasionally produce unhelpful advice, such as suggesting using glue to make cheese attach to pizza.

Google has also highlighted that other phoney screenshots were also making the rounds while these erroneous AI Overview responses were being circulated online. Results from the AI Overview include smoking while pregnant, abandoning dogs in cars, and never experiencing depression.

It is rare that Google has answered absurd queries such as “How many rocks should I eat?” When it comes to deciphering absurd inquiries and satirical content, Reid acknowledged that AI Overview still requires improvement. Additionally, “to limit the use of user-generated content in responses that could offer misleading advice,” the tech giant modified its algorithms. Additionally, “triggering restrictions for queries where AI Overviews were not proving to be as helpful” have been added by Google.

“In a small number of cases, we have seen AI Overviews misinterpret language on webpages and present inaccurate information,” the company has acknowledged. We promptly took action to resolve these problems, either by making adjustments to our algorithms or by putting in place procedures to eliminate answers that don’t adhere to our guidelines.

When it comes to “hard news topics,” Google AI Overview won’t appear since “freshness and factuality are important.” Google has also introduced “additional triggering refinements to enhance our quality protections” in the area of health.
