Seriously WRONG Information by Brave AI

I asked the browser if an individual who works for a nonprofit can be active in a campaign. When I asked on my iPhone, AI said individuals can’t do ANYthing if they work for one. But when I asked on my laptop it gave me the correct information: an individual can do what they want as long as they aren’t representing the nonprofit. The wrong info can mislead someone and keep them from using their rights to freedom of speech. This needs to be corrected!

It is important to remember that any AI (not just Brave’s) is not infallible and may hallucinate or provide inaccurate information, depending on the question and the context.

That said, can you please tell me which model you were using when you received the incorrect answer and which one you were using when you received the correct answer?

Thanks for responding. What do you mean by which “model”? My phone is an iPhone 12 and up to date. My laptop is a MacBook Pro, macOSVentura version 13.6.7. I got the wrong answer on both, though the first time I tried to get an answer on my laptop, it was correct. The second time it gave the same wrong answer as my phone did.

@Truthseeker,
Thank you for the information but I was referring to which AI model you used. Did the other models respond with more accurate information?

You can tell what model is being used here and change the model using the Settings button in the panel (circled):

Hi, sorry to not respond sooner, but I can’t find what you showed me regarding finding the model type for AI on my phone.

Here is a screenshot of the AI response I got on my iPhone, which was wrong;

Can you find this same response and confirm for me what AI model it is and who it belongs to? I definitely want to avoid using it.

Also, if Brave finds that a particular model frequently gives incorrect information, will you pull it from your browser? This AI answer above was especially concerning during an election year, especially considering the serious need for election integrity.

Thanks!

Hello again. I just sent you a screenshot from my iPhone (see below), and here is what I found when using my laptop. I can’t find the model information on either device. You can see that the answers are very different. The one attached to this is correct, because it states that employees are not totally prohibited from involvement in political campaigns.

Please tell me how to find the model so I can avoid it.

When I suggested you change the model it was because I had assumed you were using Leo that was built into the browser, not the AI used in our Search.

That said, I’m not super clear on why you got such drastically different answers from iOS to laptop. I’ll have to ask and get more information on why this would differ.

Every time I do a search For something political, at the end of it it has to do a comparison to Donald Trump. I did individual searches for George HW Bush Classified documents scandal, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, And at the end of each one it Basically says that “experts” Say Donald Trump’s classified documents scandal was way worse way way horribly worse :joy::rofl::joy::laughing:

Which I know isn’t true, but there’s a lot of gullible idiots out there who don’t really think for themselves. This is how Democrats are made after all.

Concerning. But not surprising

Yeah that’s not true.
It’s because you searched for George HW Bush classified documents scandal initially. Classified documents is a data point that persists across all of those search criteria and Trump’s scandal is relevant related data point.

I just searched using AI for “Bill Clinton” and got the following:

Bill Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001. He was a member of the Democratic Party and is known for his significant impact on the country’s economy, foreign policy, and social issues.

Early Life and Education

William Jefferson Blythe III was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. His mother, Virginia Cassidy, was a nurse, and his father, William J. Blythe Jr., was a traveling salesman. Clinton’s parents divorced when he was young, and his mother later married Roger Clinton Sr., with whom she had a son, Roger Clinton Jr.

Clinton’s grandparents, Eldridge and Edith Cassidy, owned a small grocery store in Hope, where he spent much of his childhood. He attended public schools in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and later attended Georgetown University, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs in 1968. He then attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, where he earned a Master’s degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics in 1970.

Political Career

Clinton began his political career in 1970, when he was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives. He served in the House until 1974, when he was elected Attorney General of Arkansas. In 1978, he was elected Governor of Arkansas, a position he held until 1981.

In 1992, Clinton was elected President of the United States, defeating incumbent President George H.W. Bush. He was re-elected in 1996, defeating Republican candidate Bob Dole.

Presidency

During his presidency, Clinton oversaw the country’s longest peacetime economic expansion, which lasted from 1991 to 2001. He also implemented several significant policy initiatives, including the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Clinton was the second U.S. president to be impeached, in 1998, on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. However, he was acquitted by the Senate in 1999 and completed his term as president.

Post-Presidency

After leaving office, Clinton established the Clinton Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on global issues such as poverty, climate change, and healthcare. He has also written several books, including his memoir, “My Life,” and has been involved in various business and philanthropic ventures.

Personal Life

Clinton has been married to Hillary Rodham since 1975, and they have one daughter, Chelsea Clinton. He is known for his charismatic personality and his ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

Awards and Honors

Clinton has received numerous awards and honors for his service to the country, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal, and the Order of the Aztec Eagle.

No mention of Trump or any scandal. You’ll find this is true for most searches unless they’re related to the criteria you’re searching. What you were seeing was AI doing what it’s supposed to do — answering your query with accurate information, then providing supplemental relevant information.

I’m sorry, but I think you have me confused with someone else. I wasn’t searching for information on George Bush or Bill Clinton.

I searched using the main Brave browser (not Leo) on my iPhone, and asked "Can an employee who works for a nonprofit participate in a political campaign?" The answer I received was completely wrong; I verified that it was incorrect by checking the IRS website.

I then asked this question using my laptop, and initially I got the right answer. But later I used my laptop again and got the same wrong answer.

So I got two totally different answers. The incorrect one would be very misleading for an employee of a nonprofit, because it stated unequivocally that the employee of a nonprofit is PROHIBITED from doing anything political. This is absolutely untrue. That is why I contacted Brave; during an election year, this kind of information needs to be accurate!

@Truthseeker you should probably come to the forum instead of just looking at email. The reply you see from Mattches in regards to that was someone else who replied on this topic.
