Internet search engine Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has suffered a loss of $100 billion for sharing false information in an advertising video for its new chatbot ‘Bard’.
Google shares fell 9 percent on Wednesday, according to Reuters. Last year also, the value of Google in the stock market decreased by 40%, but since the beginning of this year, an increase of 15% was seen.
The error was first identified by Reuters in a Google chatbot ad that aired on Monday.
The ad showed Google Bard being asked a question about what else was discovered by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The bard gave different answers to this question, one of which was not correct.
The first image of an extrasolar planet taken by JWST was actually taken by the Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in 2004, Bard said.
A Google spokesperson said it shows how rigorous the testing process is, starting this week under the ‘Trusted Tester’ program.
Bard’s responses will be of high quality and based on factual information, the spokesperson said.
It should be noted that Open Artificial Information, a new start-up backed by Alphabet’s rival Microsoft, launched a new chatbot called ChatGPT about 28 days ago in November, threatening Google’s monopoly. has gone
In its live presentation on Wednesday, Google did not specify when it would add Bard to its search function, but the company acknowledged the bug in the new feature.
Google had posted a GIF video of Bard on its Twitter account saying that the most complex topics would be simplified. But instead the chatbot has landed the company in trouble by giving the wrong answer to a question. .
