Google has admitted its AI search needs fixing after it told users to eat rocks and use glue on pizza.

The search giant announced on Thursday plans to fix the problems, by retooling and refining its AI summaries.

By reigning the AI in, Google hopes to limit AI summaries to search terms where it will provide better value. So, no more rock-eating.

In a “hands up” blog, they explained what exactly went wrong and how they intend to fix it.

Here’s what you should know:

  • Google’s AI was returning bizarre summaries.

  • They have admitted the problem and are trying to fix it.

  • They are rolling back the feature and limiting it to certain search terms.

Another day another meme

Google’s whacky results quickly became meme-worthy, embarrassing Google with yet another AI misstep.

Remember when they had to respond to accusations their AI was “too woke”, after it produced images of female founding fathers, and Vikings of colour?

Google insisted the AI summaries worked well the vast majority of the time, but a few results that slipped through the cracks were all it took for the feature to go viral.

Google needs one of those “days since embarrassing AI mishap” signs.

Will Google ever nail an AI feature first-time?

We don’t know where it goes either…


Samsung has announced it is bringing AI features to its smartwatch lineup, with a new Wear OS update.

The updates are all health-focused, with six new major features for watch owners.

Energy Score will track overall health metrics like sleep, activity, and heart rate to summarise your current condition, using AI to interpret the data.

Wellness Tips will give you insights and “motivational tips” to reach your goals, based on your health data.

Sleep Indicators will be added to Sleep Score to give a “precise analysis” of your sleep including how much you moved while sleeping, your heart and respiratory rate.

Workout Routine will be able to use your health data to create workouts that are tailored to your current condition. Race will provide motivation when comparing outdoor runs or bike rides that you’ve taken along the same path - like chasing your ghost in Mario Kart.

Finally, Aerobic/Anaerobic Threshold Heart Rate Zone Metrics and Functional Power Threshold can analyse performance on the spot based on your health metrics.

The six new features:

  • Energy Score

  • Wellness Tips

  • Sleep Indicators

  • Workout Routine

  • Race Motivation

  • Threshold Heart Rate Zone Metrics

AI - the hot new thing in health

Samsung hopes the new features can help them compete with other smart trackers like Whoop and Aura, as well as the dominant Apple Watch.

The update will launch in beta in June, with a further rollout coming after.

Great, AI is telling us to get off the couch and go for a run.

Google is refusing to comment on a potentially massive leak of its own documentation.

Gemini customers get back over $2B from bankrupt Crypto exchange Genesis.

Data Centres could use up to 9% of all electricity in the US by the end of the decade.

Don’t Miss - Nvidia and AMD shares cool slightly, as commentators wonder if the AI rally is over, and if software companies will soon reap the benefits instead.
