Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman announced how his company is taking a big step to block child pornography from appearing in search results.

Eric says that he has broke down the measures in various categories, of which one is cleaning up and will clean out more than 100,000 search results. And will generate a warning that will appear on more than 13000 results that are on the same topic. The Google chairman said he hired a 200-strong team to work out a solution over the last three months and that their work has already fixed up to 100,000 potential queries.

Eric Schmidt says “There’s no quick technical fix when it comes to detecting child sexual abuse imagery.” Instead, Google will use humans to review the images to discern the difference between “genuine abuse” and “innocent pictures of kids at bathtime.” 

For now, Google’s newest improvements are limited to few countries including the UK and US, although Google says it will roll out its adjusted search globally over the next six months, covering 158 more languages.
