Facebook Adopts PhotoDNA Technology to Fight Against Child Abuse
Facebook and Microsoft come hand in hand to fight against child pornography. The social network giant Facebook adopts PhotoDNA technology co-invented by Microsoft Corporation to find child pornography on its site.
Microsoft and Dartmouth College together invented PhotoDNA technology to identify and remove images that exploit or endanger children.
Facebook will run PhotoDNA on all images uploaded to the site to help find and block images showing child pornography. The technology will also help Facebook report incidents to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the police, to allow them to take immediate action, according to Chris Sonderby, assistant general counsel at Facebook.
Microsoft currently uses PhotoDNA in Bing, Skydrive and Hotmail.
