Google Employees Use Their Innovation Time To Aid Fight Against Child Porn

Google is known amongst IT workers for it's innovative HR policies, one of which allows an employee to devote a percentage of their work to a project of personal interest. Research Scientist, National Center for Missing & Exploited ChildrenThe Google technology will enable NCMEC analysts to more quickly and easily search NCMEC's systems to sort and identify files that contain images of child pornography victims. New video tools from Google will streamline analysts' review of video snippets from files seized in child pornography cases. Comparing these images and videos through an automated process enabled by custom-built Google technology has a real potential to assist law enforcement in child pornography investigations." Hats off to Shumeet and team, and to Google for it's progressive policies that allow for such innovation to happen.
