Google's Gemini chatbot, formerly Bard, and Microsoft's Copilot chatbot are generating fabricated statistics for Super Bowl LVIII, suggesting that the game has already taken place.

These artificial intelligence chatbots, based on GenAI models, provide detailed but completely fictionalized data on player performances and outcomes.

Gemini, answering questions about a nonexistent game, come up with imaginary scenarios in which players like Patrick Mahomes and Brock Purdy achieve remarkable feats on the field. Meanwhile, Copilot also contributes to the misinformation, claiming a victory for the San Francisco 49ers over the Kansas City Chiefs, complete with a fake final score.

While such inaccuracies may seem harmless, they highlight significant shortcomings of current GenAI technologies. These models have no real intelligence, but rely instead on probability-based algorithms trained on huge data sets. While they can produce coherent text, they tend to generate meaningless or false information, as the misinformation at the Super Bowl showed.
