Google intends to relaunch its AI tool for generating images of people in the coming weeks, as stated by Google DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis on Monday.

The tool, known as Gemini AI models, was temporarily halted last week due to inaccuracies in historical depictions generated by some users. The company decided to take the feature offline to address the issues reported on social media.

Hassabis mentioned during a panel at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that the tool was not functioning as intended. He expressed hope that the feature would be back online in the next couple of weeks after fixing the inaccuracies.

Alphabet’s shares experienced a 3.5% decline on Monday afternoon, contributing to the largest drag on the benchmark S&P 500 index.

Google, in its pursuit to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, launched the generative AI chatbot Bard a year ago. However, it faced challenges when inaccurate information was shared about pictures of a planet outside the Earth’s solar system in a promotional video, leading to a drop in shares by as much as 9%.

The chatbot was subsequently renamed Gemini earlier this month, accompanied by the introduction of paid subscription plans offering improved reasoning capabilities from the AI model.
