Inaccurate AI-generated images of Asian Nazis, black founding fathers and popes created with Google’s Gemini AI chatbot are “unacceptable,” the company’s chief executive said.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded to the images in a memo to staff calling the photos “problematic” and telling them the company is working “around the clock” to fix the problems.
Users criticized Gemini last week after AI generated images showing a variety of ethnicities and genders, even when doing so was historically inaccurate, accusing Google of having an anti-white bias.
‘No Al is perfect, especially at this emerging stage of industry development, but we know the bar is high for us and we will maintain it for as long as necessary.
“And we will review what happened and make sure we fix it at scale,” Pichai said.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai apologized for “problematic” images depicting black Nazis and other “woke images”
Google came under fire last week for its AI chatbot that posted woke and historically inaccurate images, with critics accusing the company of being biased against whites, claiming it was overcompensating for long-standing issues of racial bias.
Pichai promised that Google would take steps to prevent Gemini from promoting similar problematic images in the future.
Sundar Pichai said the company is taking steps to ensure that the Gemini AI chatbot does not generate these images again.
Google temporarily disabled the Gemini image generation tool last week after users complained that it generated “woke” but incorrect images, like those of Papas.
‘We will drive a clear set of actions, including structural changes, updated product guidelines, improved release processes, robust evaluations (sic) and red teams, and technical recommendations. “We are analyzing all this and will make the necessary changes,” he stated.
