Pornhub Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Identify And Tag Your Favorite Stars In Videos

The future is now.



Yesterday, we found out that millions of Pornhub users were hacked over a year ago in a malware attack that was literally just discovered and promptly shut down. It sucks that it went on for so long, but at least it’s over!

Now in happier Pornhub news, it was recently announced that a new AI-powered server has been launched. It will allow an autonomous computer system to detect, identify, and tag porn stars and genres in videos. The poor person previously tasked with watching countless hours of porn as part of his duties will be relieved. 

Pornhub says the algorithm that tags the videos was programmed using footage from thousands of pornos, as well as photographs of porn stars, and now, the program is able to recognize over 10,000 different porn stars by scanning and interpreting the videos.

“Now, users can search for a specific pornstar they have an affinity for and we will be able to retrieve more precise results,” says Corey Price, VP of Pornhub. “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 pornstars added or removed on the video tags.”

Snce the system is so new, Pornhub is asking users to validate whether the tags are correct by upvoting or downvoting the descriptions. 

So don’t hesitate, go, um, validate!
