China Uses Emotion Recognition Technique To Predict Crimes In Public Places
Margareth SPublished on
China has quickly emerged as the second biggest contender in technology and its innovation. China is also a country with a high crime rate and the call for a better prevention system is necessary.
Financial Times corresponded Sue-Lin Wong attended surveillance tech expo in Shenzhen. She found one of the biggest buzzes in the expo was the surveillance camera that recognizes emotion.
The technology has many potentials and major Chinese tech companies such as Alibaba, Tencent and Hikvision have invested in it.
The expo was an overall amazing place and any fanboy would squeal to just be able to go and witness the technology advancement that China is showing. But seeing how they refuse to answer questions especially on the purpose of the technology itself and ultimately, how it will impact people’s lives, i.e how their privacy may be infringed unknowingly by people, could this whole expo itself be a proof of the powerful surveillance system of the government?
Anyways, while many of these technologies are incredible, they are still met with limitations such as signal range, battery life and even the accuracy of these things.
