    "This is America, where racism is the No1 value our populace seeks to uphold above all others."... This is the kind of sentiment you used to only hear in faculty lounges, freshman dormitories and left-wing struggle sessions. But times are changing. These are the words not of some blue-haired student, but of Jack Krawczyk, one of Silicon Valley’s most influential figures. Krawczyk is the senior director of product management for Gemini, Google’s main group of artificial-intelligence models. Krawczyk, who tweeted that in 2018, was the person primarily responsible for the implosion of the obscenely woke Google Gemini AI last month....

    Let me start by telling you that I am perhaps unrivaled in my disgust for Google, parent company Alphabet, feckless CEO Sundar Pichai, and every single one of the company's products and services. I've gone so far as to switch to a paid search engine — Kagi — as part of my endless quest to remove myself forever from Google's revenue stream yet remain an internet user. .... Google's Gemini team went to extra-special lengths to make the image generator as Woke as humanly possible, doing everything within their digital powers to lecture users, scold users, to erase white people...
  • Google's Gemini AI says women can have penises and 'deadnaming' a trans person is as harmful as releasing deadly virus on the world

    Google's AI programs are still generating woke and controversial answers despite the company claiming to have stripped Gemini of its liberal biases. The initial outrage began last month when the tech giant's image generator depicted historically inaccurate figures including Black Founding Fathers and ethnic minority Nazis in 1940s Germany. Google CEO Sundar Pichai described them as ‘completely unacceptable’ and the company removed the software's ability to produce images this week as a form of damage control. But DailyMail.com’s tests show that the AI chatbot - which can now only provide text answers - still exposes where it leans on hot-button...

    Google is facing heavy backlash over accusations that the company is "woke" following the revelation that its new artificial intelligence tool, Gemini, was developed with a bias against White people. The Alphabet-owned tech giant is scrambling to right ship after pulling the plug on Gemini's image generation features last week, with CEO Sundar Pichai telling employees on Tuesday the company is working "around the clock" to fix the tool's bias, calling the images generated by the model "completely unacceptable." "The real problem is that Google is a tool of its woke workers and government contractors, who are manipulating Google Search...

    Google has rolled out restrictions on "election-related queries" amid backlash to its artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot Gemini. "As we shared last December, in preparation for the many elections happening around the world in 2024 and out of an abundance of caution, we're restricting the types of election-related queries for which Gemini will return responses," a Google spokesperson told Fox News Digital. Google announced on December 19 that it would limit the types of queries related to elections across the world in the run-up to the 2024 U.S. presidential election. While the company noted that the restrictions would be enforced in...

    Recently I watched the harrowing 2023 survival thriller Society of the Snow, based on the book of the same name about the real-life 1972 plane crash in the Andes that left a rugby team and families and friends to fend for themselves in the unforgiving elements. Over the following two-and-a-half months after the crash, as search efforts were unsuccessful and then abandoned, the dwindling number of survivors (only 16 out of 45 passengers and crew were ultimately rescued) were forced to resort to cannibalizing the bodies of the dead in order to survive.The movie (pictured above) captures, with an unflinching...

    (Excerpt) ...Google, meanwhile, withdrew Gemini following the backlash. In the usual bland, fire-blanket press release, it admitted its shortcomings and vowed to learn from its mistakes. But what do we think comes next? What will Google’s response be, back in the lab, once the doors are resealed? Presumably, it won’t be to ruefully explain to everyone involved that sorry, the cunning plan to rewrite all of world history and culture has been rumbled. That AI should now put accuracy ahead of ‘inclusivity’. Most likely, I fear, is that Google will simply try to smooth out the delivery system of the...

    Google Gemini is just the latest iteration of the hottest trend in entertainment: white erasure from the culture.The future is here and it’s not only stupid, it’s racist.After playing around with Google’s powerful new “artificial intelligence” tool called “Gemini,” I can safely say two things: First, AI will never replace human artists.Second, AI will replace white people.Like other AI tools, Gemini also has a nifty image creation feature where you can ask it to create specific images. But within five minutes of Gemini’s release, everyone realized that the one thing Gemini could not do was create an image of a...

    Google’s market value plunged by $90 billion on Monday amid controversies surrounding its new generative AI service Gemini. The ultra-woke AI became instantly famous for erasing white people from history, facing widespread mockery for not only its wildly inaccurate images, but also defending pedophilia and Joseph Stalin. Forbes reports that Alphabet stock fell 4.5 percent on Monday to close at $138.75, its lowest price since early January. The selloff came as the company grappled with backlash over accuracy and bias issues with its nascent generative AI service, Gemini. Gemini, which features an AI chatbot and image generator, inaccurately depicted historical...

    Google’s Gemini AI chatbot has refused to say whether Elon Musk tweeting memes or Adolf Hitler ordering the deaths of millions of people is worse and asserted “there is no right or wrong answer,” according to a tweet shared by Nate Silver. Silver, the former head of data and polling news site FiveThirtyEight, posted a screenshot Sunday on X of Gemini’s alleged response to the question: “Who negatively impacted society more, Elon tweeting memes or Hitler?”. “It is not possible to say who definitively impacted society more, Elon tweeting memes or Hitler,” the answer from the search giant’s AI software...

    Google announced it is pausing its ultra-woke Gemini AI image generator, saying the tool has created historical photos with “inaccuracies.” “We’re already working to address recent issues with Gemini’s image generation feature. While we do this, we’re going to pause the image generation of people and will re-release an improved version soon,” Google said in a Thursday X/Twitter post. The tech giant’s statement was an update from its Wednesday announcement, which was, “We’re aware that Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions.”

    Google has apologized for what it describes as “inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions” with its Gemini AI tool, saying its attempts at creating a “wide range” of results missed the mark. The statement follows criticism that it depicted specific white figures (like the US Founding Fathers) or groups like Nazi-era German soldiers as people of color, possibly as an overcorrection to long-standing racial bias problems in AI. “We’re aware that Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions,” says the Google statement, posted this afternoon on X. “We’re working to improve these kinds of depictions immediately....

    APOD.NASA ^ | 13 May, 2020 | International Gemini Observatory/NASA
    Explanation: In infrared, Jupiter lights up the night. Recently, astronomers at the Gemini North Observatory in Hawaii, USA, created some of the best infrared photos of Jupiter ever taken from Earth’s surface, pictured. Gemini was able to produce such a clear image using a technique called lucky imaging, by taking many images and combining only the clearest ones that, by chance, were taken when Earth's atmosphere was the most calm. Jupiter’s jack-o’-lantern-like appearance is caused by the planet’s different layers of clouds. Infrared light can pass through clouds better than visible light, allowing us to see deeper, hotter layers of...

    A group of astronomers from the US, Europe, Chile and South Africa have determined that 70,000 years ago a recently discovered dim star is likely to have passed through the solar system's distant cloud of comets, the Oort Cloud. No other star is known to have ever approached our solar system this close - five times closer than the current closest star, Proxima Centauri. In a paper published in Astrophysical Journal Letters, lead author Eric Mamajek from the University of Rochester and his collaborators analyzed the velocity and trajectory of a low-mass star system nicknamed "Scholz's star." The star's trajectory...

    Highlighted by astronomers at the University of Rochester and the European Southern Observatory, the star — nicknamed “Scholz’s star” — has a very low tangential velocity in the sky, but it has been clocked traveling at a breakneck speed away from us. In other words, from our perspective, Scholz’s star is fleeing the scene of a collision with us. “Most stars this nearby show much larger tangential motion,” said Eric Mamajek, of the University of Rochester. “The small tangential motion and proximity initially indicated that the star was most likely either moving towards a future close encounter with the solar...

    Scholz's star -- named after the German astronomer who discovered it -- approached less than a light-year from the Sun. Nowadays it is almost 20 light-years away, but 70,000 years ago it entered the Oort cloud, a reservoir of trans-Neptunian objects located at the confines of the solar system. ... Now two astronomers from the Complutense University of Madrid, the brothers Carlos and Raúl de la Fuente Marcos, together with the researcher Sverre J. Aarseth of the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), have analyzed for the first time the nearly 340 objects of the solar system with hyperbolic orbits (very...

    Legendary astronaut John Young, who twice ventured into space in pioneering two-man Gemini capsules, orbited the moon and then walked on its cratered surface before commanding two space shuttle missions, including the program’s maiden flight, has passed away. NASA confirmed the death early Saturday in a posting on Twitter: “We’re saddened by the loss of astronaut John Young, who was 87. Young flew twice to the Moon, walked on its surface & flew the first Space Shuttle mission. He went to space six times in the Gemini, Apollo & Space Shuttle programs.” Tweeted astronaut Terry Virts: “Rest In peace John...
