The Chinese authorities could detect a criminal among a crowd of more than 50,000 people


IllustrationIllustration -  The Chinese authorities reported that the national video surveillance system could detect a criminal among a crowd of more than 50,000 people.

This is proven, when a camera found a 31-year-old man, that wanted for economic crime, during a concert in Nanchang (the third largest city in the country)

The man who was wanted for economic crime was shocked when he was arrested by government officials.

He drove about 100 km away with his family and friends to attend the event, and was confident that no one would recognize him in the big crowd.

The man does not consider that Chinese authorities actively apply face detection and video surveillance systems based on AI.

China is one of the countries that has implemented video surveillance system in cities using neural networks. For example, cameras with AI can find suspects and criminals among a large crowd of people in just a few minutes.

Their working principle is quite simple: in all of public places in China, the goverment made many cameras there, and computer systems track and identify people in real time.

The government of this country has unlimited power to use AI to collect and process data on the activities of the population.

The cameras not only detect dangerous criminals, but also ensure the safety in the street.

For example, pedestrians who violate traffic rules will receive a fine payment notice. If they does not pay it, it will affect for their "social credit":

As a result, a violator will restricted to access of public transport, car rentals, air travel, bank loans and large purchases.
