Pornhub has launched a bot capable of detecting and tagging the faces of its film stars, saving its poor human employees from hours of painfully sitting through its footage.
The platform says that it has trained the AI to recognize over 10,000 faces by feeding it several thousand videos, as well as the official photos of the stars.
Helpful users can then validate the results processed by the bot by up-voting or down-voting the predictions. The AI gets smarter with time, learning what viewers have validated, and then adapting accordingly.
Vice President Corey Price says, “Now, users can search for a specific porn star they have an affinity for and we will be able to retrieve more precise results.”
“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. In fact, over the course of the past month alone, while we tested the model in beta, it was able to scan through 50,000 videos that have had porn stars added or removed on the video tags.”
The company hopes to be able to accurately tag all five million videos by 2018. In addition to tagging actresses, the bot is expected to start predicting categories next year.
“So, for example, the AI model will know if a video is shot outside and will add it to the ‘Public’ category,” a spokesperson explains. “Or, it will know if there are blondes in a video and automatically add it to the ‘Blonde’ category. Furthermore, the model will also be able to detect various sex positions and be able to properly tag them.”
Who knew AI would end up in the adult entertainment industry as well?
