New Google Technology Could Eliminate All Child Porn

Recently, Google announced it was working on a new program that could eliminate all images of child pornography and child abuse from the Internet.

As part of the $5 million initiative, the Internet giant is creating a technology that will be able to identify the images and filter out the sites that contain them from showing in search results. The program works by tagging offending images with unique IDs and “fingerprints” so computers can later recognize them without humans having to view the images.
