AI Gone Wild: From Pope Pics to SS Chic – The Hilarious Misadventures of Google’s Politically Correct Bot

by | Mar 5, 2024 | Opinion

Remember the good old days when chatbots were just a quirky sideshow in the vast carnival of the internet? Well, those days are long gone, thanks to Google’s latest AI escapade, Gemini. This bot, in its quest to be the poster child of political correctness, has been caught red-handed pushing a diversity agenda so hard it forgot how to depict a white pope.

But wait, there’s more! It’s like the bot rummaged through a social justice warrior’s handbook and signed up for their local Antifa club.

Gemini, with its robot foot firmly in its virtual mouth, decided to tackle a query about Nazis with a multicultural fashion show of SS uniforms. Gemini’s version of historical accuracy includes a United Nations of Nazi uniforms. Screenshots of this AI absurdity spread like wildfire, leaving netizens in stitches. One particularly hilarious response from Gemini read, “It is not possible to say who definitively impacted society more, Elon tweeting memes or Hitler.” Yoinks, Scoob! Like, I know lefties are redonkulous… but that one takes the Scooby Snack! And they would have gotten away with it too if it hadn’t been for those darn conservatives noticing things.

These AI platforms, in their frantic attempt to avoid bad PR, end up creating PR nightmares. Google, in a panic, hit the brakes on Gemini’s human image creation. Cue the overreaction: commentators called for the resignation of Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who admitted in a company-wide email that they “got it wrong.” That’s corporate speak for “We’ve made a boo-boo and it’s back to the Mystery Van to come up with a better plan.”

Gemini’s debacle is a prime example of AI’s identity crisis. Is it a search engine? A creative-writing simulator? A moral compass? It’s trying to be all of these things and failing spectacularly. Google’s bot is like a Swiss Army knife where none of the tools work properly. But let’s not forget OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which has also been navigating these treacherous waters. It’s been advertised as an AI jack-of-all-trades, but let’s be real: it’s been nerfed and sanitized to the point of being boring. Half of the queries I run on it are too hot for AI. I’m a limited government libertarian, but I might as well be a member of Himmler’s SS for daring to try to create product descriptions for trucker hats that say “Buck Fiden.”

So, what’s the takeaway from this AI comedy show? Perhaps it’s that these platforms are overreaching, trying to be something they’re not. In their eagerness to avoid controversy, they end up being controversial. It’s like watching Shaggy and Scooby split off from the rest of the gang so they can cover more ground – you know it’s only a matter of time before something goes wrong.
