Google has announced that it is working on a “new technology” that could end internet child pornography in “one fell swoop” according to The Telegraph today. This new technology as they are calling it would allow Google’s internet search engines to exchange information with child protection organizations to work together and wipe this material from the internet. This is a huge strike against child pornography and comes as Google is becoming more under pressure to do it’s share. Google as also set up a 2 million dollar fund for independent software developers to produce new tools to help in the fight against child pornography. Hopefully, Google will add more to this fund because honestly, this is a major issue and one that is well within Google’s wheel house to fix.
Way to go Google, I don’t give ya’ll props for much but you could impress me here.
