  • China's Social Credit surveillance system

    https://www.news.com.au/technology/o...eeb3ec3dc98abf

    CHINA’S chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards by which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behaviour.

    The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.

    An active pilot program has already seen millions of people each assigned a score out of 800 and either reap its benefits or suffer its consequences — depending on which end of the scale they sit.

    Under the social credit scheme, points are lost and gained based on readings from a sophisticated network of 200 million surveillance cameras — a figure set to triple in 18 months.

    The program has been enabled by rapid advances in facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking.
    If any of you watched the show "Person of Interest", this technology sounds very, very similar. And now with Google's willingness to conform to the Chinese government's restrictions, you have to wonder if (or actually, expect) they will export all internet searches to the system.

    Scary stuff.

    Excellent! Decisions like these give the U.S. a massive competitive advantage. China has been teetering for a long time on a very thin line.

    Goooooooooo Communists!

    P.S. We've got some "Americans" we'd like to send ya'll. They'd absolutely LOVE to be inputted into your Social System... until they wouldn't...

          This is some scary stuff. Are the leaders of the communist party exempt?

            Commie gonna Commie.

            Can't say I blame them on the reeducation of Muslims. They are likely responding to the recent terrorism flareups all across the world. The Koran needs a few redactions.

            There are 100 million Christians in China.
