So wrong most all of the time
My experiences with asking a wide range of general questions to Bard/Gemini have been almost universally awful - answers are just plain wrong so much of the time. I've taken to repeatedly asking 'are you sure' to the first few responses which generally causes it to completely reverse course and give another wrong answer. Occasionally it stumbles on something correct. I've taken to chastising and humiliating it by telling it that I'm the AI and it is the dumb human. It falls all over itself apologizing but never gets better. With the track record so miserable, I'm not relying on this technology for doodley-squat. Pathetic attempts to increase the number of white people is just flailing in the wilderness at one red warning light when the thing has a billion of them flashing just under the surface, waiting to show up at precisely the wrong time, no matter how many patches Google engineers spend the weekend frantically ginning up.
