Google Loses $100 bn After AI Bot 'Bard' Gives Incorrect Answer in Promotional Ad Google loses $100 billion after AI Bard gives wrong answer in a promotional ad.

New Delhi: Google parent company Alphabet’s stocks tumbled on Wednesay by 8%, costing almost $100 billion after its AI 'Bard' gave incorrect reply on a query in a promotional ad on Twitter. In the post, a Gif can be seen answering a prompt: What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9 year old about? In that response, the AI bot listed three discoveries including spotting ‘Green Peas’ galaxies and capturing galaxies as old as 13 billion years. However, the last response was erroneous. Bard wrote that the James Webb Telescope took the very first picture of a planet outside our solar system. But the correct answer, as per NASA records, is ‘European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope’.

As per Google Blog, Bard is opened for ‘Trusted Testers’ ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.

Alphabet’s shares tumbled 8% on the opening of the stock market which might have reflected losing trust among people regarding the tech company’s capability to compete against Microsoft and ChatGPT.
