Google & Microsoft announce to combat together against Online Child Porn

Google and Microsoft announced today (November 18th 2013) that they will introduce new software controls aimed at reducing the distribution of child pornography online. Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, announced today that the Multi-Business-Concern Google in Cooperation with MS will roll out new Control(ed)-Software designed to curb child porn searches on the Google Searchengine(s).

In a joint announcement, both Companies have introduced on the British summit on Internet safety 2013, a software that makes it harder for Pedophiles, Sadists and wannabe`s to search for child abuse material online.

Writing ahead of that British summit on Internet safety, Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt said his company has fine-tuned Google Search to clean up results for over 100.000 search terms in connection to child porn. When users (Pedophiles) type in queries that may be related to child sexual abuse, they will find no results that link to illegal content.

(My opinion: If this would be possible (and not only a trying promise), this would be one of the biggest breakthrough(s) in this disturbing and growing Internetcrime(s), that "kills" Children emotionally, for the rest of their lives, if they come away without killing after an sexual raping act).

Schmidt wrote in the Daily Mail newspaper: "We will soon roll out these changes in more than 150 languages, so the impact will be truly global". Globalization ?

The restrictions are being launched in the United Kingdom and other English-speaking countries first and similar changes are being brought out on Microsoft's Bing search engine (Where is YAHOO ?). The two companies are sharing picture detection technology to identify child abuse photographs whenever they appear on their systems, and Google is also testing technology to identify and remove illegal videos.

Other measures include warnings shown at the top of Google search for more than 13.000 queries to make it clear that child abuse is not only illegal but a crime indescribable. Schmidt acknowledged that no algorithm is perfect and Google cannot prevent pedophiles adding new images to the web. Maybe someday they will be able, on the long run. Campaigners welcomed the move but doubted how much impact the changes would bring. Pedophiles tend to share images away from the public search engines, they say...

Jim Gamble, the former chief of Britain's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center said: "They don't go on to Google to search for images, they go on to the dark corners of the Internet on peer-to-peer websites."

According to a briefing issued by Mr. Cameron's office, changes to be introduced by the search engines include, but not limited :

- The introduction of new algorithms that will block child abuse images, videos and pathways that lead to illegal content, covering 100.000 unique searches on Google (Worldwide).

Stopping auto-complete features from offering people (...with Pedophilia disorder...), child abuse search terms.

- Google as well as Microsoft will now work with the National Crime Agency and the Internet Watch Foundation to bring forward a plan to tackle peer to peer networks featuring child abuse images.

Google will bring forward new technology that will put a unique identification mark on illegal child abuse videos, which will mean all copies are removed from the web once a single copy is identified or uploaded.
