Chinese surveillance system – China Embraces Facial Recognition – Videoüberwachung

Via Twitter I saw this video and want to share it with you.

Very interesting in this tweet are also the replies.

Daily reminder that most Chinese people know this is going on but are too apathetic to care

Also very interesting is this article from Cory Doctorow from the year 2015: “Reputation Economy Dystopia“.

And then I saw this video from the Wall Street Journal:

Once the stuff of science fiction, facial-scanning cameras are becoming a part of daily life in China, where they’re used for marketing, surveillance and social control. Video: Paolo Bosonin. Photo: Qilai Shen/Bloomberg
