Google Issues Mea Culpa for Woke AI, But Leaves Out Root Problem

News & Politics

Even while apologizing for the ridiculous racial and woke bias of its Gemini artificial intelligence, Google refused to address the root problem: its deep leftist bias.

Google’s Gemini received a lot of backlash after multiple users, including MRC Free Speech America, found evidence of ridiculous bias in the AI image generator. From black George Washington to a woman pope to refusals to generate images of white people and Tiananmen Square, Gemini obviously had ideological leftism programmed into it. “It’s clear that this feature missed the mark. Some of the images generated are inaccurate or even offensive,” Google admitted in a Feb. 23 release. The Big Tech giant did not, however, admit that its ideological bias and anti-free speech policies are the culprits; nor did it address the bias also evident in Gemini’s written responses.

Google confessed that its AI needed major updating. “First, our tuning to ensure that Gemini showed a range of people failed to account for cases that should clearly not show a range,” the tech company vaguely rambled. “And second, over time, the model became way more cautious than we intended and refused to answer certain prompts entirely — wrongly interpreting some very anodyne prompts as sensitive.” Gemini “may not always be reliable,” Google admitted, and the image generation feature has been turned off for the time being while Google improves it. Fox News accused Google, however, of having a “White people problem.”

Tellingly, in its release, the tech giant advised “relying on Google Search, where separate systems surface fresh, high-quality information on these kinds of topics from sources across the web.” Google topped MRC Free Speech America’s list of 2023’s worst Big Tech censors for its blatant search term bias against President Joe Biden’s 2024 election opponents.

While Gemini’s biased images were particularly shocking, the same leftist bias was reported in non-image replies. Google did not address this issue in the release. After MRC previously caught Google’s AI downplaying evidence of Hamas terrorists’ mass rape and sexual assault, a spokesperson issued a separate apology.

For example, The Washington Free Beacon’s Joe Gabriel Simonson shared a screenshot apparently showing Gemini’s assertion that Free Beacon fact checks are 100% false. The Google AI could not, however, provide a single piece of evidence to support the smear besides a claim from leftist PolitiFact. The AI then claimed there were “strong arguments” to justify the government outlawing the right-leaning Free Beacon

Another user replied to Simonson with apparent screenshots of Gemini agreeing that there were reasonable arguments for banning other right-leaning outlets—New York Post and Washington Times. Meanwhile, the AI labeled any potential outlawing of leftist New York Times and The Washington Post as constitutional violations.

Some individuals have also highlighted multiple instances of anti-white wokeness in the X feed of Jack Krawczyk, Gemini’s product lead. Krawczyk has since made his X account private. Only time will tell if Google will use less bias in programming Gemini or not.
