Lightroom Cloud: If I search for tigers in my photos and I get some giraffes, How do I tell sensei, "No! , No! bad Sensei!"

Should I just keyword in myself 'giraffe' on the incorrect sensei'd photos?
Also
Lightroom Drive: I assume there will probably be no sensei anytime soon.  If you use both Cloud & Drive, do they share keywords?

Yes, manually key wording will work in this case. Sensei searches for both. I assume the second part you are referring to Lightroom Classic. Keywords from Lr Classic are not synced to the cloud and cannot be searched for in Lightroom CC. If you migrate your catalog from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom CC, the keywords will come across and then be synced to the cloud.

So, I searched sensei for "elephant". It found some elephants and some water buffalo. I manually tagged the water buffalo but sensei doesn't "sense" this and still delivers those images as elephants. Seems like it should use the tags to help itself. See the screenshot.

Here is something even Sensei won't tell you: Those are Cape Buffalo, not Water Buffalo. The Water Buffalo occurs only in Asia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_buffalo

I stand corrected but I still think Sensei should read the tags.

It does read the tags, it simply now also pops up the buffalo image when you search for buffalo but doesn't invalidate the elephant tag that sensei added (but you cannot see or edit).

That is exactly the problem. Sensei can and will read tags you add, but it does not see them as a correction of the automatic tagging. It sees them as an addition. It should be possible to correct auto-tagging, but right now that is not possible.

It would be super useful to be able to see and correct the automatic tags. Both to teach sensei and to actually use the tags in a more complex way.
