Google will take measures to ensure the proper use of its Artificial Intelligence services

This Thursday, March 16, Google has published a series of guidelines framed in a new ‘prohibited use policy’ focused on its generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) services such as Bard.

This is to ensure the proper use of these models and their functions, prohibiting activities such as “generate and distribute content intended to misinform.”

It is important to mention that in February of this year, the technology company presented its own chatbot based on the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) conversation technology. With it, the company intends to enhance the search experience to offer “current and high-quality” answers.

Google also announced that it is working on new generative language application programming interfaces (APIs), starting with LaMDA, which will be testable starting this month with a group of developers, builders, and businesses, with the goal of “create a set of tools and APIs that make it easier to develop more innovative applications with AI”.

In this way, the technology company has recalled that generative AI models are useful for “explore new topics, inspire creativity and learn new things”.

For all these reasons, Google has published a ‘prohibited use policy’ regarding the activities that users can carry out with its generative AI services.

The first point that this policy deals with is the prohibition of “performing or facilitating dangerous, illegal or malicious activities”. This includes actions that promote illegal activities, for example, creating content that exploits or abuses children; facilitate the sale of illegal substances, goods or services; or promote terrorist content.

It also refers to “abuse, damage, interfere or interrupt services”, with actions such as the distribution of ‘spam‘, scams or ‘malware‘. Following this thread, Google specifies that attempts to bypass security filters or “intentionally leading the model to act contrary to policy”.

Likewise, the company will not allow users to generate content that harms or promotes intentional harm to an individual or group of individuals. With this, it refers to methods of harassment, intimidation or abuse and even methods of self-harm.

Google will stop selling its augmented reality glasses, why?

Google has announced that, from this Thursday, March 16, it stopped the sale of its augmented reality (AR) glasses aimed at companies, the Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2and that it will maintain its support until September 15, the date on which it will discontinue them.

The technological giant initiated this project of smart glasses with the Gafas Google more than 10 years ago, starting with a version focused on users with an Explorer version. In January 2015, however, the Mountain View company concluded the development of this device and its sale to the public and began to focus on a version for companies.

Thus, in May 2019, Google presented the Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2, which included improved functions and was designed to help improve the efficiency of employees, that is, to use them in the different tasks they performed at work.

Now, as the technology company has announced through its dedicated web page of Gafas GoogleAs of this Thursday, March 16, 2023, the Google Glass Enterprise Edition has stopped selling.

In this statement, the American manufacturer has thanked “more than a decade of innovation and partnership”; however, it has ruled that it will no longer sell these devices. However, it will maintain its support until September 15 of this year. Thereafter, the glasses will continue to function normally, but without receiving software updates.
