Google’s Artificial Intelligence – is sometimes dead wrong

If the President and Vice President of the United States were to resign, the next in line is the speaker of the house. But I wasn’t sure who that was. So I Googled it.


So here Google got it wrong because rather than sourcing the information in a database, they are parsing natural text and seeking to identify the the correct information.

The picture is easier as Google has hundreds of pictures of each individual.

When confronted with an error, searchers can give Google feedback via a link – but this type of feedback is not always effective.

We may have a bit more time before AI takes over..

update ….a few days have gone by and Google now correctly identifies Paul Ryan as the Speaker of the House in some of its data centers.
