Police have launched AI bots to spot illegal pornography, but the algorithm mistakes desert photography for porn.

London Police are using the image recognition software, capable of identifying drugs and guns, to recognize adult content to keep officers from having to search through gigabytes of porn themselves.

“For some reason, lots of people have screen-savers of deserts and it picks it up thinking it is skin color,” said lead forensics expert Mark Stokes.

As of now, it cannot discern the difference between a desert landscape and a naked body, and it’s likely the peach color and curvatures of sand are to blame.

While a seemingly benign mistake, the over-reliance on AI underscores concerns of an inevitable Orwellian state fueled by absolute black-and-white, “Judge Dredd”-style enforcement.

In fact, the mass surveillance capabilities the UK uses on its own citizens is already a well-documented battleground of privacy.

Scotland Yard once implored a CCTV in every home, which critics described as a sugar-coated trojan horse under the guise of “protection.”

“The proposals on increasing the amount of privately owned CCTV cameras are quite frankly Orwellian and risk turning members of the public into an extension of the police,” said Renate Samson of Big Brother Watch.

But despite these privacy implications, AI is only becoming more advanced and powerful.

A prominent graphics firm showcased its sophisticated AI capable of producing highly realistic footage depicting environments that do not exist or people performing actions they never did.

“The ramifications of this technology are enormous: the politically persecuted could soon be victims of fabricated ‘video evidence,’” reported Kit Daniels.

This trend of having vital decisions made by an omnipresent entity, where the prerogative is dubious and the editable nature of “hard evidence” is downright frightening, needs to be observed, contested, and be held accountable by all citizens of western civilization.

Interestingly enough, Foucault’s warning of the panopticon echoes as a foretelling of a globalist endgame of control.

Simply put, the panopticon is a prison office that allows a single watchman to have eyes on everyone.
