USA - New Google AI ‘Thinks More Carefully’

Arno Froese

Google has released an artificial intelligence (AI) model which it claims has advanced “reasoning capabilities” to “think more carefully” when answering hard questions.

AI content generators are known to sometimes invent things, which developers call hallucinations.

Gemini was tested on its problem-solving and knowledge in 57 subject areas including maths and humanities.

Google is making some big claims for its new model, describing it as its “most capable” yet and has suggested it can outperform human experts in a range of intelligence tests.

Gemini can both recognize and generate text, images and audio—but is not a product in its own right.

Gemini appeared to have set a “new standard,” highlighting its ability to learn from sources other than text, such as pictures, according to Chirag Dekate, from analysts Gartner.

However, a new, more powerful version of the OpenAI software is due to be released next year, with chief executive Sam Altman saying the firm’s new products would make its current ones look like “a quaint relative.”

But as the technology rapidly evolves, so do fears about its potential to cause harm.

Governments around the world are trying to develop rules or even legislation to contain the possible future risks of AI.

Arno's Commentary

Most of us do not really comprehend the definition “artificial intelligence” (AI); frankly, there is no need to. When we turn the light switch on, we know that it works based on experience, but we don’t necessarily fully understand electricity. What we do know about AI is it functions based on details intelligent designers have put into it. Obviously, the danger is it incorporates misuse. Interestingly, the developers call it hallucinations. 

Old-time programmers repeat the motto: “garbage in, garbage out.” In plain words, nothing can come out that is not first put in. However, AI seems to be on track toward a different direction; namely, creative thinking, or as Neil Gershenfeld titled his 1999 book, When Things Start to Think.

The ultimate deception is revealed in Revelation 13:15. This manmade “image of the beast” indeed can think and make decisions: “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
