Bumble have found a good way to fight against dick selections and other unsolicited nudes. The firm’s engineers have developed an AI capable of automatically identifying and hiding these contents before they are distributed to the user.
Bumble is positioning itself in the highly congested dating market and the first version of the application was launched in 2014.
To differentiate itself from its competitors, the company has chosen to do everything possible to give women control over their meetings.
Bumble plans to shoot dick photos
Bumble looks a lot like Tinder and this is not surprising, since the company was designed by Whitney co-founder Wolfe Herd. In 2014, he left his company and filed a complaint of sexual harassment against the other co-founders of the solution.
Badoo contacted her to propose the launch of a new dating platform. Bumble opened a little later.
As mentioned earlier, Bumble’s main goal is to give women control. If a match is only possible in a match, men will not have the opportunity to communicate directly with the chosen ones of their hearts and will have to wait for them to take the first step by sending them a message.
The concept appealed and the application exceeded the threshold of 20 million users in 2017. For its part, the company is valued at more than one billion dollars.
Far from falling asleep on their laurels, the Bumble developers had the idea of developing a new feature to protect even a little more its users. The latter is based on artificial intelligence and works in a very similar way to an automatic nudity detector.
An AI that will be deployed in June.
Expected for the month of June, this famous detector will analyze all the images transmitted through the platform in real time to determine if they fall under the peaks of the cock or the unsolicited nude. If this is the case, then the photo will be automatically coded and your recipient will receive a message informing them of the nature of the image. The latter will have the option to block or view, at your own risk.
According to Bumble, the image recognition technology used would offer an accuracy rate of 98%. This remains, however, theoretical. In fact, it will wait until the function is displayed in all the accounts to discover if it is really effective. Currently, Bumble has a little more than 50 million users and, therefore, one can reasonably ask if this AI will really be able to analyze each of the images that travel on the platform.
It should also be remembered that Whitney Wolfe Herd is very politically engaged and is currently defending a project that aims to make the exchange of obscene photos a crime punishable by a fine of up to five hundred dollars.
