Funniest Fails of Google’s New AI Search Tool “Overviews”

Google advises users to smoke during pregnancy, cook with glue and eat rocks. Yes, that’s right. Recently Google underwent a significant change, putting “AI Overviews” (AI-powered answers) above the actual search results for many queries. While this isn’t good for publishers who rely on people clicking through to their sites in order to stay in business, it’s even worse news for users, because they are served with a hot steaming plate of total bullshit.

Google's new AI search results are having quite the week. Here's a thread with some of my favorite answers:

  1. When I hear that AI is going to replace tens of millions of human workers, destroy jobs, and create massive unemployment, because an AI can do the job better than any human could, I think of examples like these.

  2. Imagine the massive data centers with the massive consumption of energy and fresh water used to generate these inane responses. If this is where the human race is heading, extinction may come sooner than we expect!

  3. ” Recently Google underwent a significant change”

    I guess that’s an accurate description of a lobotomy.

  4. Google AI has made many, many careless mistakes. I don’t where any of those AI overview answers came from. This just proves that AI is not always accurate.
