I wasn't sure exactly which forum to put this in but this is some pretty terrifying application of technology.

www.fastcompany.com...


The Orwellian-as-all-get-out practice is being conducted using “emotional surveillance technology” by both businesses in China and the country’s military, reports the South China Morning Post. The tech uses small wireless sensors embedded in employees’ hats that can monitor brainwaves. That brainwave data is then analyzed by AI to tell when an employee is tired, anxious, or even full of rage. One company using the brain-monitoring tech says profits have increased by $315 million since rolling it out way back in 2014. Other uses of the tech include monitoring drivers of trains to tell if they’ve fallen asleep or are at risk of doing so.

Ruthlessly myopic.

They and everyone else all hyped up on mind reading tech, synthetic telepathy, etc. need to be caged until assimilated back to reason and, you know, having a beating heart.

They literally have no fuggin clue what theyre getting into, let alone the validity or rather, invalidity, of the data they find and what it actually means, why and how these mental functions happen, let alone how to react to it...if at all.

Its not too dissimilar to the wildly idiotic approach to atomic/nuclear power ie: turn it into a weapon first, then build total # power plants on god damn fault lines...


Idiots .

I agree, but it's going to happen whether its now or in 20 years, whether its China or America, this future is coming, it's the next step, and all we can do is hope for the best.

China is doing just fine...

Almost 2 billion strong, still the lowest in every crime rate or death by cancer or aids or other...compared to the #1 in almost every category with 2/3 less people.

Let's worry about the brainwaves of the mentalists in the US who decide to go shoot up the workplace...

Speaking of which, May 1st so right around the corner, we're almost due for a new mass shooting.

Or maybe managers know that they can't treat employees badly and not get noticed. If several employees under one manager have extreme brainwave levels, then the higher ups know who to check out.

I can see it being useful when I ask my girlfriend "Is something wrong?"
Just silence...
I honestly can't tell if she's pissed or if there is no issue and she's just chilling most of the time.
