But in communist China, who decides who has nothing to hide? Like Ping An, the government is now converting data on its citizens into social credit scores.
It’s called Sharp Eyes. And those eyes are electronic, thanks to the world’s most advanced surveillance. The five most surveilled cities in the world are Chinese. China now has more than 200 million cameras, including at the entrance of an international conference.
And cameras use software that recognize not only faces, but also how people walk, and then can then track their location as they move. That allows cameras to judge behavior. In Shenzhen, cameras watch this intersection. If people jaywalk, they’re publicly shamed when their faces are displayed on the screen.
Do you think, because that camera is there, more people cross legally?
