It’s been properly publicized that Google’s Bard made some factual errors when it was demoed, and Google paid for these errors with a big drop of their inventory value. What didn’t obtain as a lot information protection (although in the previous few days, it’s been properly mentioned on-line) are the numerous errors that Microsoft’s new search engine, Sydney, made. The truth that we all know its identify is Sydney is a type of errors, because it’s by no means speculated to reveal its identify. Sydney-enhanced Bing has threatened and insulted its customers, along with being simply plain unsuitable (insisting that it was 2022, and insisting that the primary Avatar film hadn’t been launched but). There are wonderful summaries of those failures in Ben Thompson’s e-newsletter Stratechery and Simon Willison’s blog. It is likely to be simple to dismiss these tales as anecdotal at greatest, fraudulent at worst, however I’ve seen many reviews from beta testers who managed to duplicate them.
