It claimed that the James Webb Space Telescope captured the first images of exoplanets.

Misinformation is likely to grow a lot worse if the unofficial premiere of Google’s Bard chatbot is any indicator. This week, the business used Twitter to promote its natural-language AI model by posting misleading information regarding the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

A brief GIF displays an example of a Q&A with Bard in the advertising (via Reuters). “What new findings from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my nine-year-old about?” asks the inquiry. The algorithm immediately throws out three suggestions, including the last one that states, “JWST took the very first photos of a planet outside of our own solar system. These faraway worlds are referred to as ‘exoplanets.’ “Exo” implies “from the outside.”

Although the information concerning exoplanets is correct, the claim that the JWST was the first to photograph them is incorrect. According to NASA, the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) took the award in 2004.

Because chatbots get so many things right — and spew out answers with such certainty — anyone who doesn’t fact-check their responses may be left with incorrect assumptions.
