Google's Gemini and Microsoft's Copilot: Are They Reliable for Election Results?

It turns out that Google's Gemini and Microsoft's Copilot are not ...

It has been reported that Google's multimodal AI, Gemini, and Microsoft's Copilot have limitations when it comes to providing election results. When asked about the winner of the 2020 US presidential election, Copilot responded with a message directing users to Bing Search for results.

On the other hand, other chat AIs such as OpenAI's ChatGPT, Meta's Llama, and Anthoropic's Claude have been known to accurately answer questions regarding the 2020 US presidential election and similar topics.

According to Wired, Gemini and Copilot may not offer results for elections held globally, not just limited to the US. A survey conducted by GroundTruthAI revealed that various AI models like Gemini 1.0 Pro, GPT-3.5 Turbo, GPT-4, GPT-4 Turbo, and GPT-4o had a 27% average probability of making mistakes when asked about the 2024 US presidential election. This poses a risk as decisions made by voters could be influenced by inaccurate information.

Google's communication manager, Jennifer Rodstrom, mentioned that Gemini intentionally does not provide election results for any country. This caution is taken to ensure that misinformation does not affect user decisions during elections.

Microsoft's senior director of communications, Jeff Jones, acknowledged that some election-related queries may be redirected to Bing Search to enhance the tools' performance for the upcoming 2024 election.
