Chinese language police use face recognition glasses to catch criminals

In Pure Hollywood Style, Chinese Police Wear Glasses That Can Scan Criminals In A Crowd

How? Well, according to various reports, the wearables which resemble Google Glass, are linked to a central database which contains details of criminal records.

LLVision says its device is able to scan individuals from a pre-loaded database of 10,000 suspects in just 100 milliseconds, though just how accurate the glasses are in use is said to vary based upon the surrounding environmental noise.

The facial information captured by the glasses will be sent back to a database for comparison with the information of suspects on the wanted list.

With the help of these high-tech sunglasses, police at the Zhengzhou East Railway Station have nabbed 33 suspects, of which 7 are accused of human trafficking and hit and runs, while 26 are accused of using fake IDs.

For this, all police officers at the four entrances to the station are now required to wear the spectacles.

China is already working on "the world's biggest camera surveillance network". Many of these feature some form of AI, including facial recognition. Now, the budding technology is also being utilized to capture wrongdoers. During this holiday, hundreds of millions (if not billions) of Chinese people will be traveling across the country to get together with their family. Furthermore, it also allows the government to control the movement of minorities with confiscated identity documents who often have to wait years to acquire passports.

In an effort to ramp up its security in and around the country, China's police force has been given a new tool to help its personnel: facial recognition glasses. This would be eyebrow-raising anywhere in the world but is even more so in China which has a fairly blasé relationship with human rights. These groups claim that its implementation violates the people's right to privacy. On the other hand, the Chinese government could easily use this technology to more effectively clamp down upon people trying to protect their rights - such as petitioners and human rights defenders. "Beijing should immediately stop these programs, and destroy all data gathered without full, informed consent". If they are staying away from home, that information is known, too. Naturally, there's also privacy concerns, since the technology gives fresh surveillance powers to the state.
