Google has spent the last few weeks rolling out a suite of new AI tools including “AI Overview,” which theoretically uses a generative large language model (LLM) to summarize top search results. Users immediately started reporting major problems with the tool, including results that encouraged them to eat rocks and glue, contained instructions to create mustard gas instead of cleaning solution, and speculated that people with dark skin could stare into the sun for up to 30 minutes.
