Google’s Bard chatbot boldly spews disinformation in its Twitter debut
A brief Animation displays an example of a Q&A with Bard in the advertising (via Reuters). “What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9 about?” asks the inquiry. The algorithm immediately throws out three suggestions, including the final one that states, “JWST took the very first photos of a planet outside of our own solar system. These faraway worlds are referred to as ‘exoplanets.’ “Exo” implies “From outside.” While the information concerning exoplanets is correct, the claim that the JWST was the first to photograph them is incorrect. According to NASA, the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) took the award in 2004.
