After yet another episode where Google search data rankings were gamed to change an image of a result we have to explain to the
simpletons of tech Tech Journalists that Siri is merely doing a search
No Siri did not “Think” that Donald Trump is a penis as the headlines for many tech news outlets claimed it merely sourced the image from Google. It is well known that by changing the meta data or tags for images etc you can game Google, and other search engines, results to give dominance to your information.
Yet again far left activists have used this tactic to make their image of choice the one that Google provided in the results, that image being a full. Frontal of a penis.
The trouble is that Google spends so much time linking through meta data and harvesting huge chunks of image information from websites and Google Photos whee the images were set to public etc that by using coordinated look ups of that image with the term Donald Trump Google’s AI connects that image to him and sets it high in the rankings for results and then passes it onto the likes of Siri.
As of tonight though someone seems to have done some rapid changes to Siri’s search giving priority to Wolfram Alpha results rather than Google results. It will probably change back once Google cleans up their search once again.
So in this case, just like the rest of the similar issues it is not Apple that is at fault it is Google who became the primary search client.
All these issues have occurred since Apple made the switch from using a combined Microsoft Bing and Wolfram alpha search result. I guess that Google is far too easy to game or maybe it is Google that want Siri to appear to be extremely inaccurate or have issues with results. After all it benefits Google for a rival “assistant” to be seen as less competent than their own product.
