Uganda Is Working On A Machine That Detects Pornography


I actually there's actually more to this action, or is it an infringement of people's privacy. Last year, the East African country’s government announced that it had ordered for pornography-detecting machine” which was meant to be delivered in September 2016.

Interestingly, the machine is said to be able to detect both deleted and current pornographic materials stored on people’s computers in Uganda. This apparently includes detection and blocking of porn photos, videos or any graphics taken or saved on anyone’s phone, computer or camera. There's also a Pornographic Control Committee set up to implement the Law.

The porn detector machine, cost around $88,000 (a whopping UGX 300 million) and is developed in South Korea. It'll join Uganda’s Anti-Pornography Law of 2014 which states that the penalty for offenders upon conviction is a fine of $3,000 (UGX 10 million) or up to 10 years in jail, or both.

I really think this would put a little sense of morality on the people of Uganda but looking at it from a different perspective, this shouldn't be an issue. I'm sure there are more pressing issues in the country that could be handled with the money spent on the machine.
