When diversity efforts go wrong: Google's Gemini creates 'racially diverse Nazis'

When headlines read “Google apologizes for generating racially diverse Nazis,” you might start wondering if you’re living in the Twilight Zone.

Dave Landau can’t help but laugh at the sheer absurdity of the ordeal, especially the image of “the Asian woman” decked out in Nazi regalia or the “Native American over there in Germany.”

When someone asked Google's new AI feature, Gemini, to create an image of a German Nazi, this is the picture it generated:

“With all the AI stuff going on, Google decided to put their own out, and if you type in almost anything historical, they'll make it diverse which is … a good thing, except for Nazis,” laughs 1/4 Black Garrett.

Gemini was reportedly programmed to not further racial and gender stereotypes, but when it comes to generating historical images, clearly there have been some problems. When asked to create an image of America’s Founding Fathers, it did the same thing and featured a variety of races, which is, you know ... not accurate.

Obviously, people are upset, leading some to accuse the platform of intentionally avoiding creating white people, which, of course, the company denied.

Google did release an apology, however, and claimed that “Gemini is offering inaccuracies in some historical image generation depictions” and that the company is “working to improve these kinds of depictions immediately.”

For now, Gemini has been blocked from generating images of human beings until the issue has been resolved.
