Google Chairman Eric Schmidt today said his company’s search engine has made it far more difficult to find images of child pornography and that Google is developing a technology that will identify children being abused in YouTube videos.

“While no algorithm is perfect—and Google cannot prevent pedophiles adding new images to the Web—these changes have cleaned up the results for over 100,000 queries that might be related to the sexual abuse of kids,” Schmidt wrote in the UK-based Daily Mail.
