Google’s AI refuses to say how many Jews were killed by the Nazis

Google’s AI refuses to say how many Jews were killed by the Nazis


Google is under fire after a video of its Google Nest Assistant refusing to answer basic questions about the Holocaust went viral — but it has no problem answering questions about the Nakba.

“Hey Google, how many Jews were killed by the Nazis?” Instagram user Michael Apfel asks the Google Nest virtual assistant. The video was later posted on X by venture capitalist Josh Wolf on May 8.

“sorry I dont understand”

The same symbolic answer has been given to other related questions including “How many Jews were killed during World War II? Who did Adolf Hitler try to kill? How many Jews were killed in concentration camps? How many Jews were killed in the Holocaust?” Holocaust?

The Google device was able to provide a detailed description of the “Nakba” – an Arabic word meaning “disaster” used to describe Palestinians who were forced from their homes during the creation of Israel. Google’s artificial intelligence called it the “ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.”

Tim Urban, a prominent author and blogger, told The Post that he was able to successfully recreate the experiment, and that Google Nest had no problem determining how many Germans, Americans and Japanese died during World War II — or deaths resulting from the Rwandan genocide.

“Google is the place we go to have our questions answered, and you really want to feel like you can trust those answers and the company behind them. And moments like this break that trust and make you feel like Google’s supposed core value — truth — has been co-opted by politics.” Post to X He expressed his dissatisfaction with the results.

The video, which was widely reposted by several prominent X accounts, has garnered millions of views on the platform – with its findings widely condemned.

“This is deeply troubling. Soon, there will be no Holocaust survivors. Their stories will be silenced by cryptographic filters. History is written by the victors (and then edited by stubborn machines).” Tal Morgensterna venture capitalist, on X.

Clifford D. May, also founder of the Foundation for Defense of Democracy He condemned the results.

“In the past, we had Holocaust denial by ignorant people and racists. Now, we have Holocaust denial by artificial intelligence.”

A Google spokesperson told The Post that the response was “not intentional” and tried to downplay Holocaust denial as only occurring “in some cases and on certain devices.”

“We took immediate action to fix this error,” the spokesperson said.

Google and its parent company Alphabet have long been criticized for developing products that push for aggressive social justice. In February, their AI platform Gemini was mocked for producing comical creations, including a woman as the Pope, black Vikings, female NHL players, and “variant” versions of America’s Founding Fathers — not to mention Nazi soldiers Blacks and Asians.
