2016, digital video, 12 minute loop
A convolutional neural network1 was trained using Yahoo’s explicit content model for identifying pornography2, which learnt by being fed a database of thousands of graphic images. The neural network was then re-engineered to generate pornography from scratch.
Machine Learning Porn is a 12 minute looped film that records the AI’s pornographic fantasies.
Inspiration from Gabriel Goh, the machine learning researcher who originally discovered the technique.
