Now, in an op-ed on British newspaper Daily Mail (via The Verge), Google s executive chairman Eric Schmidt wrote that the search giant is ready to take things a step further.

Explaining how it plans on clamping down on child pornography, Schmidt wrote that the company will be cleaning up more than 100,000 search results and henceforth also display warnings over specific search results like child pornography is illegal or child child abuse is against the law .
Schmidt though also is realistic about the current situation explaining that currently there is no automated way to detect what images can be categorized as pornographic. He said, Google will use humans to review the images to discern the difference between genuine abuse and innocent pictures of kids at bath time.
Additionally, it will continue updating its database to help the law enforcement agencies and non-profit organizations in their crusade against child porn.
