Google Announces Child Porn Block

I am concerned about pornography and wish we could completely  ‘block’ all pornography on the internet, but this at least  is a very good step and google

I have to commend Google, Microsoft and others for their efforts here and pray, maybe someday, we can develop a complete block.

The executive chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, recently announced that the company is introducing software that will block links to child abuse material on the internet.

In Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ newspaper, Schmidt announced that Google and other internet companies like Microsoft have been working with law enforcement agencies to stop child pornography pedophiles from sharing illegal pictures on the internet. Schmidt wrote: “While society will never wholly eliminate such depravity, we should do everything in our power to protect children from harm.” He also stated that the company has fine-tuned Google Search “to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results.”

Among other changes, there is a warning from both Google and charities posted at the top of more than 13,000 search results and assigning a digital fingerprint to illicit images so the can be removed from Google’s system and the Google engineers are developing technology that would identify videos showing sexual abuse with the hope of making it available to other internet companies and child safety organization by next year.

While he acknowledged that no algorithm is perfect, the changes have cleaned up the results of over 100,000 queries. Changes will be rolled out within the next six months in more than 150 different languages, making the impact global.

British Prime Minister David Cameron hosted representatives of Google, Microsoft and other internet companies recently in London for an internet Safety Summit.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!

  1. I am glad to see that private companies are policing the internet of their own free will and not by government decree. This is a positive development.
    Thanks Rick for the great article!
