Pornhub’s new Artificially Intelligent Chat-bot will update you on adult world’s news

These days every tech website is coming out with its own chat-bot so why should the world’s most popular adult website, Pornhub remain behind. In keeping with the advancements in chat-bot technology, Pornhub has launched its own steamy Aria chat-bot that will keep Pornhub users up to speed on the latest in porn news.

From today, Pornhub Aria Genie will bring you updated Pornhub news and provide Pornhub users with real-time notifications about the happenings in the adult world. Pornhub has used chat-bot technology from San Francisco-based Blend, which launched its Genie Store in mid-October.

Pornhub Aria Genie is sure to help around 60 million visitors to Pornhub and its 4 million members. According to Corey Price, vice president at Pornhub, the chat-bot will blend with Pornhub Aria which has been the face and voice of the brand for more than two years now.

“Aria is about as charismatic as they come,” he said. “She provides her followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat with updates on the happenings of Pornhub, including new initiatives and campaigns, along with her own takes on everything from the Kardashians to Kermit memes to McDonalds menu items. Our millennial maven’s humor is imbued with sarcasm, and she rarely holds back on her thoughts. Essentially, she’s the SFW personality for the NSFW adult entertainment platform that is Pornhub.”

The Aria chat-bot will also allow users to select their favorite adult film star and receive real-time notifications when a new video featuring that individual is uploaded to Pornhub or RedTube.

According to Pornhub, Aria chat-bot won’t be directly linking any content to Pornhub but concentrate on providing real-time adult news to Pornhub users.

Facebook Messenger has more than 11,000 chat-bots, but how many people use them? That’s what Blend CEO Akash Nigam is asking, and he believes his solution offers a better alternative.

Blend produces “Genies,” which are similar to chat-bots on apps like Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and Kik, except they’re don’t require you to interact with them. There are more than a 1,000 genies, including ones for Donald Trump, Instagram, Fitbit, ESPN, and Kanye West. Each Genie has a unique look that resembles who or what they’re representing.

All you need to do is add a Genie to a conversation — it’s akin to adding a sticker pack on other messaging platforms. Blend relies on its “Viral Throttler” technology to trigger Genies in the middle of conversations. It “detects viral content before it goes viral,” so you’ll get tweets from Kanye West show up in your conversation before they go viral.

“I think interacting with a piece of artificial intelligence to accomplish xyz is kind of at fault in general, it only works when there are finite options at play,” Nigam tells Digital Trends. “A social interaction is so delicate, it can go in thousands of different tangents … rather than using bots to replace a conversation, we’d rather be using the best of bots to amplify the already existing group dynamic.”

There are three types of Genies you can choose from: Notification Genies, Service API Genies, and Blend-branded Genies.

Key Features:

Notification Genies offer alerts, as the name suggests, and these can range from publications like the New York Times, to sports teams and to celebrities like Drake. Service API Genies use third-party public APIs to pull content from other apps, such as from the dating app Bumble. One example Nigam said is using the Bumble Genie, if you get matched with someone, it could send the match to a group conversation.

“Another one is Equinox, the gym,” Nigam said. “What this does is fuel a little bit of the competitive side — their API calls for number of calories burned and time spent within the gym. Every single Thursday, it’s going to rank everyone in the group, and it will be like, ‘Akash you spent this much time at the gym and burned this many calories’ … you get the picture.”

Blend-branded Genies are more specific. An example Nigam offered was a “teeth-whitening Genie.” It reminds you to take specific steps every day, and by the end of the week it will send a picture of what your teeth should look like, and it will ask the participants to send their selfies so the group can judge who’s doing better.

The team plans on rolling out more than 1,000 more Genies over the next year. Companies will be able to approach the company to build their own Genie.

The Blend update is available on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Ubuntu, and the web.
