Irreversible Exposure

If there is one place where contemporary AI needs urgently to take the place of human labor, it is in the screening and filtering of violent and pornographic content for social media (and similar services).  No amount of wages can hope to ever compensate for the irreversible damage done to one’s emotional/psychological well-being (and by proxy the well-being of these workers families) resulting from daily exposure and passive consumption of content that by all accounts, defies description.

A good AI on the other hand, should by now be capable of sufficiently blurring out imagery and giving an accurate description as to the content of an image in cases where the right persons (properly trained) may need to intervene with human judgment.
