This takes surveillance to a new level.


Yitu Technology has made an AI algorithm that can connect to millions of surveillance cameras and instantly recognise people.

The company – based in Shanghai, China – developed Dragonfly Eye to scan through millions of photographs that have been logged in the country’s national database.

This means it has a collection of 1.8 billion photos on file, including visitors to the country and those taken at ports and airports.


www.dailystar.co.uk...

In some ways it's a good thing. Criminals on the run will be a thing of the past because they can't hide and I have yet to see reports of a lot of false positives where they arrest an innocent person. It goes on to say:


“Our machines can very easily recognise you among at least 2 billion people in a matter of seconds,” Yitu chief executive and co-founder, Zhu Long, told the South China Morning Post.

“Which would have been unbelievable just three years ago.”

It is reported that on the first day Dragonfly Eye was in operation in Shanghai’s Metro, it was able to track a man wanted by cops and sent police to his exact location.

A further 567 suspected criminals were nabbed on the city’s subway system.


This system will just get better over time and when it moves to identifying behavior then you're getting into pre-crime. For instance, if you had a system like this in Vegas, it might have flagged that Vegas shooter days before it happened and the guy would have been under surveillance.

On the flipside, it could flag people who may be mad but they're not going to commit a crime and then you will have innocent people under surveillance.

If A.I. can separate people who are upset vs. people who are about to commit a crime, it could be a really good system.

Yeah, we sill soon be prisoners of those who control the technology. It is starting to sound like a Sci-fi thriller. One where every single thing we do will be monitored. Already they can remotely access the camera and speaker on people's cell phones. It hasn't been a problem yet, but in the next few years I feel the laws will change.

Big Brother has been here for quiet some time. You can call this one Daddy.

This system is searching a database (of 2 billion facial images) and finding a match for your face (if yours is the face they are searching for).

Big Brother has always been present in the repressive and controlling Chinese society. All this does it make it more repressive and controlling.

In the hands of a Communist government, the iron fist just clenched a lot tighter.

What makes you think western countries don't employ similar technologies?

Because, in the West, criminals roam free.
Whereas in China there aren't any.

Turns em inta soy sauce
they do, they do
onto their boiled alive domestic dogs
after removing the fur too
of course they harvest their organs
in the nearest alley
where they catch their felon
to keep Mr Soros alive and jolly

Really Phage?

Many criminals walk free because the information authorities have on them was secured illegally, when it comes to terrorism though it's a completely different story. Regardless, everyone has a profile.

We've got similar systems, they're easily tricked apparently. Number plate recognition systems can be fooled too.

This Chinese system might be fast, it might be effective but I doubt it's foolproof. The report doesn't say anything about it's failure rate, just that it's performance has increased 1000 times.

1000x what? It's one thing to have a program running over recorded footage and another to have it running real-time.

I reckon it's mainly hype, this is the kind of success you don't boast about.

For now... You of all people should know technology is advancing exponentially. Soon all they would have to do is install an algorithm that identifies traita in body language and behavior.

Then predicting behavior. That's what the OP claimed.

That claim, and yours, is a pretty far cry from facial recognition.

You mean can find people.

Facial recognition software's ultimate goal. Why use BOLOs or warrants, just feed your picture ID into the net and wait for the hit.

Don't forget sunglasses. Facial recognition measures the distance between pupils.
