AI smut-finder is now an Android app

Melondream devs seek investors


The developers of Miles Deep, the porn AI editor we wrote about last year have made an app called MelonDream.

Miles Deep’s AI can be used to classify adult material, or to identify and remove sequences to make a video “safe”. The developers claim it is far more sophisticated than Yahoo!’s open source flesh detector AI, “NSFW”, covered here.

Developers describe Melondream as "the first application of deep learning to the field of erotica".

"If [you] want more beach scenes, press the sand and water. If you want to see more girls in the woods, press the greenery. If you like to see girls posing on wooden chairs, press the chair. And so on. This is a solution to the problem of large-scale unsupervised image clustering," the developers explain.

It also has uses beyond pornography, and the developers are keen to see it commercialised. The applications for UGC sites should be self-evident.

MelonDream only uses so-called "soft" porn images, although these may still trigger klaxons on a third-party network – so use it at your own peril.

You can find a discussion among developers here, and download MelonDream from erotica app store Lazeeva or the developer’s own site. ®

    GTC Disassembling and analyzing malware to see how it works, what it's designed to do and how to protect against it, is mostly a long, manual task that requires a strong understanding of assembly code and programming, techniques and exploits used by miscreants, and other skills that are hard to come by.

    What with the rise of deep learning and other AI research, infosec folks are investigating ways machine learning can be used to bring greater speed, efficiency, and automation to this process. These automated systems must cope with devilishly obfuscated malicious code that's designed to evade detection. One key aim is to have AI systems take on more routine work, freeing up reverse engineers to focus on more important tasks.

    Mandiant is one of those companies seeing where neural networks and related technology can change how malware is broken down and analyzed. At this week at Nvidia's GTC 2022 event, Sunil Vasisht, staff data scientist at the infosec firm, presented one of those initiatives: a neural machine translation (NMT) model that can annotate functions.

  • Microsoft to upgrade language translator with new class of AI model
    Why use 20 systems when one will do

    Microsoft is replacing at least some of its natural-language processing systems with a more efficient class of AI model.

    These transformer-based architectures have been named "Z-code Mixture of Experts." Only parts of these models are activated when they're run since different parts of the model learn different tasks, unlike traditional machine learning systems that require the whole system to perform computations. As neural networks continue to grow, the Z-code model approach should prevent them from becoming too power hungry and expensive to run.

    Microsoft said it has deployed these types of models for its text summarization, custom text classification, and key-phrase extraction services that are available from Azure.

    Something for the Weekend? My laptop has just spoken to me. It said: "Ba-ding!" It hasn't said that before and I don't know what it means. Whatever does it want?

    It's my own fault for leaving the audio-out unmuted between remote calls. If I leave it on, every pissy little background app on my system tings and hoots relentlessly throughout the day to alert me about some irrelevant non-event or another. The alerts manage to skip around Do Not Disturb mode by falsely self-identifying as "urgent" or "important." I have tried on occasion to configure them to stop doing this, but I quickly get bored and just silence the whole computer instead.

    Popular culture is to blame. Computers in movies and TV shows always make unnecessary sounds, and I don't just mean the bleeps and bloops of otherwise utterly ignored panels on Star Trek's 1960s flight deck. Even today, if someone in a movie or TV show types on a computer keyboard, the computer dutifully says "dit-dit-dit-dit-dit-dit" for reasons that must forever remain mysterious.
