Though its existence isn't confirmed, advocates worry a database of sex workers could put many women at risk. According to a post on the Chinese social network Weibo, a Chinese programmer based in Germany has created an elaborate facial recognition system to identify performers in adult films. In the post, he claims he has developed the system to the point that it can now successfully recognize the faces of nearly , adult performers. While this is ostensibly horrifying enough, the goal of the technology is even more frightening: according to a now-viral Twitter thread by Stanford political science PhD student Yiqin Fu , which translates the original posts, the system was developed specifically so male users could identify whether their female partners were performing in these films. A Germany-based Chinese programmer said he and some friends have identified k porn actresses from around the world, cross-referencing faces in porn videos with social media profile pictures.
This Neural Network Can Identify Porn Stars’ Faces
PornStar By Face Review - Big Porn List
Pornhub announced that it is using machine learning and facial recognition to detect over 10, porn stars across the site in a bid to make searching for your favorite star or fetish more efficient. So far, it's scanned 50, videos in the last month of beta testing, and Pornhub plans to scan all five million videos currently hosted on the site by early next year. Eventually—with the help of users, who will upvote and downvote the AI's guesses—the company says it'll get to the point where the computer vision can discern hair color, sex position, and fetish. Pornhub declined to tell me what computer vision company created the AI, citing a non-disclosure agreement, meaning we don't know if, for instance, the company that created the AI will have access to the data the AI gleans. While the tech seems cool at first glance, and will no doubt be a boon to Redditors shouting "sauce" on every porn gif, there are two major things to consider about this technology: porn piracy and amateur porn star privacy. Like regular videos, porn clips almost never stay in one place.
Neural face recognition network tuned with 650,000 pornstar images
There are plenty of facial recognition sites out there that tell you what celebrity you look like, who your long-lost family members may be, and even what Facebook pictures are yours before you tag them. Quit being so boring! Now you can finally attain the ultimate facial: Adult website Naughty America rolled out a tool on Monday that'll show you which female porn star you look like. You can safely check this tool out at work, but click any external links on the Naughty America site and you're bound to find some content your boss won't like.
Pornstar By Face is a truly unique website that uses facial recognition technology to identify pornstars from a picture. Once the star has been identified, you can click on her profile to read a bit more about her and find sites where you can see more of her content. It's a fun tool that you are likely to find lots of other uses for as well, but more on that later in the review.
