Pornhub is using artificial intelligence to identify porn stars

Postado Outubro 12, 2017

The reality is that Pornhub is launching an AI specifically created to detect porn stars in its videos, so viewers know exactly who they're watching.

Pornhub, the largest purveyor of adult videos on the Internet, said it will begin using robot software to comb through, categorize and tag the thousands of X-rated videos on its site. For those who can't stand running into duplicate videos (don't you hate when that happens?), the AI technology will allow PornHub to spot the copies and remove them from the site.

"Now, users can search for a specific porn star they have an affinity for and we will be able to retrieve more precise results", Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said in a statement. 500,000 videos have been scanned thus far and PornHub's entire video library will be scanned beginning sometime next year. "Our model will undoubtedly play a pivotal role moving forward too, especially considering that over 10,000 videos per day are added to the site". For example, if a clip features a blond actress or is shot outside, it'll add the appropriate "blonde" and "public" tags.

According to Pornhub, its 80 million daily visitors collectively upload more than 10,000 videos each day.

"Artificial intelligence has quickly reached a fever pitch, with many companies incorporating its capabilities to considerably expedite antiquated processes".

Along with being able to identify porn stars, the AI platform will also provide Pornhub the ability to distinguish between different categories.
