Google CEO Sundar Pichai has recently come forward to address the "completely unacceptable" errors made by the Gemini AI app, which has caused a stir due to its historical inaccuracies and biases.

Challenges with AI models

The incident with the Gemini app highlights the challenges AI models face, including those developed by tech giants like Google. Despite efforts to remove biases, AI models can still perpetuate racial and gender biases in their results. 

In a blog post, Google's Prabhakar Raghavan explained that the Gemini AI was calibrated to show diverse people but did not adjust for prompts where that should not have been the case, leading to embarrassing and incorrect images.
