In an interview with Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper, Prabhakar Raghavan, senior vice president at Google and head of Google Search, warned of the potential pitfalls of artificial intelligence in chatbots. Google has been on the back foot after OpenAI, a startup Microsoft is backing with around $10 billion, in November introduced ChatGPT, which has since wowed users with its strikingly human-like responses to user queries. Alphabet Inc introduced Bard, its own chatbot, recently, but the software shared inaccurate information in a promotional video. Raghavan emphasized the urgency of the situation but also the great responsibility that comes with it, and stated that they do not want to mislead the public.
