Microsoft's Bing image generator is accused of being too strict on content, and normal text is also considered illegal words
A few days ago, after Microsoft announced that it would add OpenAI's DALL-E 3 model to its Bing Image Creator, the speed of image generation has been greatly reduced due to the large number of users who want to try this service. Microsoft later said it was adding more GPUs to its data centers to speed up image generation.
However, now it seems that Microsoft may have to face another problem, because many netizens have encountered the problem of frequent content warnings when entering text prompts in the Bing image generator, and these texts seem to be normal, such as " Man smashes server rack with sledgehammer," "A cat wearing a cowboy hat and boots," and more.
The author noticed that Microsoft seems to have been aware of this situation. Microsoft Windows head Mikhail Parakhin said in response to user inquiries on X: "Well. This is strange - checking."
Apparently, something is wrong with the content moderation of Bing Image Generator. This is not the first time this has happened. After Microsoft launched this AI art maker in March, it strictly reviewed the content from the beginning, so much so that just typing the word "Bing" would trigger a violation message. At the time, Parakhin said that this was actually intentional at launch. "We know that the Bing image generator is too restrictive for sensitive prompt words, but it must be kept safe when launched." The problem this time seems to be unintentional, so I hope Microsoft can fix it as soon as possible.
