Google’s AI Search Tool Showing Some Gaps in Math Mastery


Apr 4, 2024

Google recently introduced a new AI-infused search tool called Search Generative Experience (SGE) that is designed to improve the search experience. This tool was put to the test by Washington Post reporter Geoffrey A. Fowler, who found that despite extensive public testing, it stumbled over a straightforward question. Indeed, instead of improving the search experience, the AI question-answering tool may have made it “dumber,” according to Fowler’s review.

In a blog post last May, Google announced that the new generative AI capabilities in Search would make searching more efficient by helping users understand topics faster and uncover new viewpoints. However, in Fowler’s review, SGE provided incorrect information when asked about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth. The figures it provided did not add up, which raises concerns given that Google is considering charging users for certain AI-powered features.

Google is already offering AI-powered features to subscribers through its One AI Premium plan, but the company recently received backlash after users complained about inaccuracies in the image-generating feature of the Gemini AI model. Despite these setbacks, Google remains optimistic about its generative AI experiments in Search and continues to work on improving the product to better serve user needs.

Paying subscribers of Google’s premium plan expect reliable answers, especially when it comes to information about well-known business figures. As the company refines its AI models and continues to roll out new features, it will be essential to ensure that the information provided is accurate, reliable, and consistent across all search results.
