Gemini Generative AI Image feature hits a pause after creating inaccurate historical pictures



Google Gemini

Google Gemini large language model just created a controversy with its generative image feature and eventually led to a pause over its services.

Gemini, previously known as Bard, is a text-to-text AI chatbot that can respond to any user prompt. Earlier this month the company added generative AI image capability to Bard before renaming it to Gemini.


Users recently found a major bug in its trained data sequence while generating images of historical figures and some known entities with dark skin color even though these people were all-white. The model also mixes people with Asian races, which is found odd by Gemini users.

This caused a major outrage on social media sites, especially on X. Users are calling Google inaccurate over these generated images by Gemini.


Google’s Reaction:

Soon after, Google published a statement on X saying “We’re working to improve these kinds of depictions immediately. Gemini’s AI image generation does generate a wide range of people. And that’s generally a good thing because people around the world use it. But it’s missing the mark here”

It also paused the feature on Thursday, saying that it “will re-release an improved version soon”.


Any user who tries to generate AI images with Gemini will receive this message “We are working to improve Gemini’s ability to generate images of people. We expect this feature to return soon and will notify you in release updates when it does”.

Specifically, there’s no specific date announced for the feature to resume.
