Google restricting election-related responses on AI products ahead of 2024

Google plans to restrict the types of election-related questions to which its generative artificial intelligence (AI) products, including the AI-powered chatbot Bard, will return responses ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

The tech giant will begin restricting responses to such queries early next year “out of an abundance of caution on such an important topic,” it said in a blog post Tuesday about its approach to the upcoming elections.
