The Chinese Police Force Are Now Armed With Facial Recognition Smart Glasses

Sunglasses

Police in China are now using hi-tech 'smart glasses' which use facial recognition to pick out suspects in a crowd - and they have already led to seven arrests. Once captured, images are run through a database of 10,000 suspects - and a match can be determined in just 100 milliseconds. Officers wearing the special glasses are stationed at four entrances to the train station.

China is one of the many countries in the world, such as Great Britain, which takes its surveillance and security to the next level.

After installing the world's largest state-owned surveillance system (100m+ CCTV cameras), China is now equipping its police officers with suspect-identifying "smart glasses".

The regime plans to install 400 million more cameras in the coming years. To handle all these monitoring devices, the government has established the Sky Net system. Now, get ready for facial recognition lenses. "There's already some evidence that human rights defenders and ethnic minorities might be singled out for profiling using facial recognition technology", Nee said. Now, the budding technology is also being utilized to capture wrongdoers. This is an annual period of travel in China where people return to their hometown for the holiday. These groups claim that its implementation violates the people's right to privacy. Or, as Sophie Richardson of Human Rights Watch put it past year: "It is frightening that Chinese authorities are collecting and centralising ever more information about hundreds of millions of ordinary people, identifying persons who deviate from what they determine to be 'normal thought, ' and then surveilling them". "Beijing should immediately stop these programs, and destroy all data gathered without full, informed consent".

China is already a global leader in deploying cutting-edge surveillance technologies based on artificial intelligence. Maybe they will be pulling off your personal information.

At any rate, police getting their hands on surveillance spectacles is all in keeping with the trend for USA cities to increasingly gobble up data on residents using surveillance technology such as gunshot-detection sensors, license plate readers, data-mining of social media posts for criminal activity, tracking of toll payments when drivers use electronic passes, and even at least one police purchase of a drone in Texas.
