Bumbles Private Detector uses AI to detect dick pics

Dating apps are finally leveraging AI to clean up users chat messages. Badoo has introduced a new feature coming to its network of dating apps, including most notably, Bumble.
The penile detecting Private Detector feature will leverage deep learning to identify dick pics and other inappropriate photos and label them as such in chat, giving users the option to view the photo or report the user.
Its great that theyve introduced this but this isnt exactly a cutting edge deep learning application here, this is something that realistically could have introduced a while ago, but Badoo CEO Andrey Andreev opted to have his team build the tech in-house. The company claims 98% accuracy in detecting illicit pics.
The company already had a low-tech option in place here where any photo being sent in chat would be blurred and the receiving user had to manually open the picture. While the context of the conversation could be a guide to whether they wanted to open the photos, sometimes context isnt very strong when it comes to unsolicited dick pics.
