PornHub uses computer technology to ID tag actors

PornHub, which gets 80 million visitors  a da found that tagging videos by hand just wasn’t efficient enough. So rather than hire people to do it manually, they opted for a robot that does it for them.

“Ultimately, we want to provide our fans with whatever it is they have a penchant for and our new model will be able to surface more accurate results for them, which will hopefully keep them coming back for more,” said Corey Price, PHub VP. “It’s all about continuously updating our platform to provide our fans with the latest in technology to make their experience on our platform as seamless as possible. The easier it is to navigate and access what they want, the happier they will be.”

The computer vision system can identify specific actors in scenes and even identifies various positions and attributes. The system can identify individual performers in real time.

This is an example.

“So far we’ve used the model on about 500k featured videos which includes user submitted and we plan to scan the whole library in the beginning of 2018,” said Price. “Very shortly, the technology will also be used to detect various sex positions / categories and be able to properly tag them as well.”
