17 cringe-worthy Google AI answers demonstrate the problem with training on the entire web

Remember this leading search engine? You won’t believe how Google looks now. Earlier this month, the place where 91 percent of searches take place underwent a significant change, putting “AI overviews” (aka AI-powered answers) above the actual search results for many queries. While this isn’t good for publishers who rely on people clicking through to their sites in order to stay in business, it’s even worse news for users. 

When AI overviews (previously called Google SGE) was in beta, I called it a plagiarism stew, because it copies ideas, sometimes word-for-word, from different content sites and stitches them together in ways that often don’t make sense. Now that AI Overviews is live for U.S. users, that stew is often poisonous: filled with dangerous misinformation, laughable mistakes, or outright prejudice.
