Google's new AI Overviews feature, integrated into its search engine, has already garnered attention for some questionable recommendations. The latest, and perhaps most alarming, involves a suggestion to use glue on pizza.

In a shared screenshot on X (formerly Twitter), a user searching for solutions to "cheese not sticking to pizza" received an AI-generated response. The AI suggested various methods, including adding cheese to the sauce. Shockingly, it also recommended mixing "about 1/8 cup of non-toxic glue" into the sauce to increase tackiness.

This advice is not only absurd but potentially dangerous. The AI appears to have sourced this suggestion from an 11-year-old Reddit comment by a user, which was likely a joke. The comment was buried in a thread with only eight upvotes, making its selection by the AI particularly perplexing.

This incident underscores a significant issue with the current approach to training generative AI models, which involves feeding them vast amounts of internet data. Google's $60 million deal with Reddit to use its posts for AI training has now led to the AI offering hazardous advice, demonstrating the risks of relying heavily on unverified internet sources to train the AI.
