MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said the ongoing issues with the company’s AI chatbot Gemini responses were “problematic” and showed bias.

Pichai in a memo to employees called some of Gemini’s responses “unacceptable” and that they had “got it wrong.”

Google had recently paused Gemini’s text-to-image generation capabilities after social media users were up in arms over some of the images generated by the chatbot.

“Our teams have been working around the clock to address these issues. We’re already seeing a substantial improvement in a wide range of prompts. No Al is perfect, especially at this emerging stage of the industry’s development, but we know the bar is high for us and we will keep at it for however long it takes. And we’ll review what happened and make sure we fix it on a scale,” Pichai said.

 Accused of bias himself at various times, X owner Elon Musk has not been shy and continued his tirade against Google. He once again called the company ‘super racist’ while responding to a tweet from a user who said that Gemini replied to his prompt that “white people should absolutely acknowledge their white privilege.”

Amidst the backlash, Helios Capital founder Samir Arora has jumped in cudgels drawn and saying Pichai should resign as Google CEO. He posted,  “My guess is he will be fired or resign- as he should. After being in the lead on AI he has completely failed on this and let others take over.”
