AI Can't Wipe Out Humanity if it's Too Busy Trying to Detect Porn Stars on Pornhub

By Tom Pritchard on at

In recent years there's been a lot of talk about AI becoming a serious threat to humanity, but maybe Pornhub has the solution to keeping the machines occupied and averting the apocalypse. Yes I'm talking about giving AI access to porn.

Well that's not what Pornhub is actually doing, though I'd like to think a healthy dose of smut will keep the machines in check. The reality is that Pornhub is launching an AI specifically designed to detect porn stars in its videos, so viewers know exactly who they're watching.

The site has let users tag porn stars in videos for some time now, but adding AI (or a computer model, as Pornhub calls it) takes that to the next level. It will scan videos on site, and using a database of official photos it will be able to detect 10,000 porn stars with reasonable accuracy. Plus being an AI it will be able to learn and improve its capabilities over time.

Pornhub also plans on having the AI scan its 5 million videos within the next year, eventually adding capabilities that lets it tag and categorise videos based in different attributes it detects.

Considering there is a lot of porn out there, even an AI will take a lifetime to get through everything. This is the distraction John Conner needed to defeat Skynet, and it's the same way human beings distract themselves when they're bored.
