When YouPorn used artificial intelligence to predict the porn people would search for in the future, the results were both startling and hilarious.
Disruptive future technologies and pornography have come to an interesting meeting place. Virtual reality porn already exists. Deepfake revenge porn that uses AI-generated likenesses of known people is already an ethical concern. Now, an artificial intelligence uses past porn search data in order to predict humanity’s future porn searches, but the results might surprise you (if you don’t fall out of your chair laughing first).
We will keep this list reasonably safe for work, but the for the even-more-hilarious NSFW version of the terms, check out this article on Mashable.
Here are some of the most hilarious and disturbing SFW AI-generated search terms from YouPorn’s AI:
- Asarian Humlion
- Girl Time Flanty
- Virtue Moir
- German Mom Hour
- Spray and pay
- Hardbore yore
- Shy Ol Mate
- Beaf Buts Compilation
- Blow Yo
- And, last but not least, simply “Wow”
If you’re lost or feeling behind the times, don’t worry, so is everyone else.
As we’ve already discovered, artificial intelligence doesn’t always behave as we expected. After all, this was the “best in the industry” AI for the task, according to YouPorn.
Why use AI to predict porn searches?
One question being asked in light of these…um, enlightening results… is why anyone would utilize artificial intelligence for this job in the first place. After all, aren’t the oldies but goodies good enough?
Well, according to MarketWatch, the virtual reality porn industry alone is expected to be worth $1 billion by 2025. The porn industry as a whole is worth $97 billion globally. In light of those figures, it makes sense that providers of such adult content would want to be up to date on the latest—or in this case, future—trends in order to pre-emptively provide content to users who may be searching for such enticing material as vintage-sounding “girl time flanty.”
According to a statistic on Psychology Today,
Porn sites attract more visitors each month than Amazon, Netflix, and Twitter combined.
Predictive artificial intelligence is already being used to understand future demands in a wide variety of industries. It’s also used to predict other things like solar storms and disease outbreaks. So, why not use artificial intelligence to predict trends in such a lucrative industry as porn?
