Google plans to reintroduce its Gemini AI tool for photos in a few weeks — on February 26, 2024 at 4:21 PM EDT

Google plans to restart its artificial intelligence tool for creating human images, which it paused last week due to inaccuracies in some historical calculations, in the next few weeks, Google DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis said on Monday.

Google Alphabet began offering its image generation service through Gemini AI models earlier this month. However, some users on social media pointed out that the historical images produced were sometimes inaccurate.

“We have taken the feature offline while we fix the issue,” Hassabis said at a panel discussion at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. “We hope to bring the feature back online in the next few weeks.”

He added that the tool “doesn't work the way we wanted it to.”

Since launching OpenAI's ChatGPT in November 2022, Google has strived to produce AI software that can compete with the company's Microsoft-backed software.

When Google rolled out its AI chatbot Bard a year ago, it shared inaccurate information about images of an exoplanet in a promotional video, sending its shares down as much as 9%.

Bard was renamed to Gemini earlier this month, and Google introduced paid subscription plans that users can choose to get the AI ​​model's better thinking capabilities. (Reporting by Joan Voss; Editing by Jan Harvey and Alexander Smith)
