China Improves Surveillance Capabilities With AI Software

Share post:

China’s desire to expand its surveillance capabilities has led organizations to adopt improved surveillance technology.

The technology, known as “one person, one file” helps organisations use AI to sort data on residents.

In the past, existing software collected data, but left it to people to organize.

The Henan Department of Public Security explains that the new AI software has the “ability to learn independently and can optimize the accuracy of file creation as the number of data increases. (Faces that are) partially blocked, masked, or wearing glasses, and low-resolution portraits can also be archived relatively accurately.”

The software improves China’s surveillance desire. However, the software is flawed because it is unable to connect an individual’s details to a real-time location, except at security checkpoints.

According to government records, various institutions plan to use the data for different purposes. Schools want to use it to monitor unknown faces outside their facilities.

Other institutions, particularly the police units in southwestern Sichuan province’s Ngawa prefecture plan to use the software for explicit security purposes.
