I'm currently building an API wrapper around it and running it on a Hetzner server with a GTX 1080 - prediction takes about 0.25 seconds and while I haven't optimised it for parallel execution, I think it should be able to handle at least +10 images/sec comfortably. I'm also testing video moderation by using ffmpeg to slice the video into screenshots and predicting the min/avg/high scores.
Moderating 25 million explicit images using Google Cloud Vision would cost around $19,500/mo vs €99/mo on Hetzner.
Sure, we can try scraping that from pornhub etc but fee then the negative classes would be very domain specific, using stock images may not provide a good measure.
Also, its really weird to assign such a task to any of your employees, feels kinda strange :)
Yeah, it's definitely not a nice task but what's stopping someone (well, besides potential legal issues) from using these commercial APIs to create datasets programatically and training a cloned model from that?
I'm curious what the profit margins are on these APIs because I think they are way overpriced.
Also, consider using Dataturks to create and host the dataset.
