I was viewing an article about China being concerned about Internet fairness. A total contrast from what they're doing with their need to control via Surveillance Tech.

China is a control freak Nation, and they're anything but 'fair'.


Chinese authorities have begun deploying a new surveillance tool designed to identify people by how they walk, or the shapes of their body. Adding to the already staggering number of surveillance cameras — many of which use bleeding edge optics and facial recognition technologies — China is already using the tool on the streets in its two largest cities, Beijing and Shanghai. It, again, raises concern among privacy advocates about how far the government is willing to go to keep tabs on its citizens.



Huang Yongzhen, CEO of Watrix, the company that designed the system, says it can identify people from up to 50 meters (165 feet), even when their back is turned or their face is covered.

the chinese may have unveiled a working " gait identification " system - but the concept is far from new - others have successfully demoed the principle [ 10 years ago ] - but i dont know of any one using it

The Chinese aren't known for their Multiculturalisms and love of Religion. They're going full tilt with this one. Human Rights aren't #1. on their list of 'to do's'.

They're late because they've been observing which is what they do best.

So they also are intentionally late. Even worse

I would say that they're intentionally late for the purpose of learned adequacy. In other words, there is purpose in their madness.

I'm not sure they added that one in to their venue. But it made me laugh.

Sounds like the perfect communist totalitarian's wet dream. I wonder how long before Britain follows suit in implementing these types of surveillance (or have they already?).

As far as the tech, I know they have supposedly been using people's "gate" to identify people for awhile now, possibly even in the states. It is said that it is as unique as an individual's face but it can be used to identfy people who have obstructed their face with mask, hat, whatever. Even using limps and such can be filtered to give a reasonable identity if the person's gate is already known. IDK how much of this is sci-fi and a psy-op but as that is quite effective as well.

How long b4 people start buying high powered lasers and burning out CCTV's/surveillance camera's? I know the green lasers do a decent job and the blu-ray burner lasers are even better and many of them can be boosted in power as long as a decent heat sink is used, the power level can be jacked up to the point where the camera is destroyed.

Hypothesis: This technology will find a niche market with single women and will allow them to study the way a prospective partner uses their walk, whether they're a woman's man, and if they have time to talk.

I love you geek chaps/chapesses. I envy your brains and skills.

I watched a few yt vids where the clever computer guys 'scam the scammers'. There's a lot of fake Microsoft Support scammers that take money from people by pretending to remove non-existent malware or virus and the like. The good guys scam them back by giving them remote access to a virtual machine, but turn the tables somehow by deleting all the scammer's files and/or destroying their networked computers lol. One chap even managed to trick a scammer into setting a syskey and bios password on his computer lol.

For every technically oppressive idea that TPTB force on us, and despite all the brains they hire to think up and build more virtual eyes to watch every hair on our heads, there are scores more technically cleverer people that welcome and enjoy the challenge to critically disrupt it. And they do it for free. For enjoyment. A spare-time hobby.

Such technically-talented people, many self-taught, would pose a serious threat to technical oppression, because they are not motivated by money and material reward. Outsmarting the 'experts' is their ultimate reward. A bit like mountaineers that just have to conquer the highest mountain. It's a motivation that cannot be bought or swayed or distracted by mere money. Corruption is powerless against it.

So keep coming up with ideas to jam a spanner in the oppressive techie system cogs, guys. It keeps my hope alive.

Is this the same set-up that repurposes the IR camera from that video game system to catch ghosts? Will they be looking for ghosts, too? I hope so. They probably have lots of ghosts in China, since there are so many people there.
