Google tries to generate a summary about cars using AI; fails miserably
AI calls the 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox on the Corvette “automatic with 8 gears”.
According to a media report, tech giant Google is looking at using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to write short summaries on various topics, including cars.
However, the effort isn’t said to be going to plan, with the data and information showcased being inconsistent & incorrect for most parts. Taking the example of the 2024 Corvette, the AI lists the sports car’s base price correctly but seems confused while listing out the prices of the higher-up variants.
Also, while mentioning the engine capacities on offer, the AI write-up seems to be inconsistent, listing one displacement in litres and another in cubic inches. The optional performance exhaust on the Stingray takes the car’s power output from 490 BHP to 495 BHP from its 6.2-litre V8. However, the AI can’t cope with this and instead just lists the car’s output as 495 BHP or “between 490 BHP and 670 BHP”.
AI calls the 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox on the Corvette “automatic with 8 gears”. Even with measurements, the write-up mentions the car is “185 in length”.
Google’s AI write-up is said to come mixed with incorrect or missing information, weird wording, and an overall inconsistent style, resulting in a very confusing mess. However, Google has clearly stated that “generative AI is experimental and info quality may vary”.
