How a Google search could end up endangering a life

Oct 18, 2021

iTWire Monday, 18 October 2021 10:28 How a Google search could end up endangering a life Featured 0 Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay A Google search summary of measures to be carried out after a seizure left out the words "do not", resulting in instructions that could well kill a person. Soft Linden, the director of information security at Linden Lab, a developer of digital entertainment, said in a tweet on Sunday that the summary of a page about what one should do after a seizure differed sharply from the original. A search for the words, "had a seizure now what?" brought up a Google summary that said one should "Hold the person down or try to stop their movements. Put something in the person's mouth (this can cause tooth or jaw injuries). "Administer CPR or other mouth-to-mouth breathing during the seizure. Give the person food ot water until they are alert again." The advice was cited as coming from https://healthcare.utah.edu -> seizures and had the heading "What to do During & After a Seizure | University of Utah Health." But the actual page said these were things that one should not do. The Google search summary. Another person posted a tweet showing that Google Home gave identical advice. Linden's tweet gained sufficient traction to elicit a response from the University which said much later in the same thread: "We recently learned that a blog was displaying incorrect information in a question box generated by Google Search Engine. The actual information on the site. "We have taken steps to modify the content and re-index the page in hopes that the information in the answer box will be modified by the Google Search Engine." iTWire has sought comment from Google. Oh no, it’s just as worse on Google Home. This will legit get someone killed. pic.twitter.com/nPenxJdqM0 INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.
