The Chinese Government Identifies Citizens By The WAY THEY WALK

Communist Chinese authorities are using “gait recognition” technology to identify Chinese civilians by the way that they walk. The new technology uses body shapes and movement to identify people even when their face is not in the camera.

This dystopian big brother nightmare is quickly becoming a reality for the souls residing in the People’s Republic of China.  Already used by police on the streets of Beijing and Shanghai, “gait recognition” is part of a push across China to develop artificial intelligence and data-driven surveillance that is raising concerns about how far the technology will go.

The software, built by a Chinese artificial intelligence company called Watrix, extracts a person’s silhouette from video and analyses the silhouette’s movement to create a model of the way the person walks. It can identify people from 50 meters away and requires no special camera to do so.

China is building a digital dictatorship to exert control over its 1.4 billion citizens. As if the “social credit” scoring system wasn’t terrifying enough, the country continues to cross the line with surveilling its own people.

“Gait analysis can’t be fooled by simply limping, walking with splayed feet or hunching over, because we’re analyzing all the features of an entire body,” said Watrix chief executive officer Huang Yongzhen. “You don’t need people’s cooperation for us to be able to recognize their identity,” Huang added.

Huang is a former researcher and quite obviously an authoritarian control freak who said he left academia after seeing how promising the technology had become. He then co-founded Watrix in 2016, and his company was incubated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Though the software isn’t as good as facial recognition, Huang said its 94 percent accuracy rate is good enough for commercial use.

But not everyone is excited about being tracked and monitored while minding their own business. Shi Shusi, a Chinese columnist and commentator, said it was unsurprising the technology was catching on in China faster than the rest of the world because of Beijing’s obsession and emphasis on social control. “Using biometric recognition to maintain social stability and manage society is an unstoppable trend,” he said. “It’s great business.”

    And to think that our amoral capitalist oligarchs and fully corrupt and evil government thought it was a good idea to hand-over the U.S. economy to these people. When did “running dog capitalism” get confused with “running dog communism?” For crying out loud. I hope the whole in your face surveillance | invasion of privacy thing blows-up in both countries faces.

    I’de like to see the complexity of the algorithm of a walking Chinaman verses the stride on an American “brother” especially under the influence of music.

    China is likely the model for future human resource management for TPTB.

    They’ll think I’m someone called Grateful Dead … Keep On Tuck’n Guy! (I wish I could post a picture but anyone from the 70’s knows what I’m talk’n about).

  4. the blame-e says:

    I gather China’s algorithm is based upon this simple formula: “If it walks like a duck then it must be a duck.”

    A Peking Duck? M-m-m-m-m-m. Peking Duck.

    This is the future and the market will drive its rapid take-up. Why? Risk avoidance. Right now, cities in Europe tolerate blacks and Muslims assaulting people at will and carrying out acts of terrorism on innocent civilians, from driving cars at them to setting off devices. This is essentially bad for business and makes living in urban areas scary and dangerous. That alone will ensure, despite all the talk about hand-holding and hugging and kissing these pathetic thugs, they will be digitally erased from public spaces.

    Even if governments like in England or France refuse to do anything (as they currently do citing human rights), other governments will pressure them to do it. As an example, they can make it mandatory for anyone to travel to release information on gait, biodata etc. before that person will be going anywhere near an airport. Dangerous individuals within these cities will have their data externally harvested so that countries like China can guarantee the safety of their citizens when they travel and do business. As an example, already Chinese police patrol in Paris to protect Chinese people from violent Muslims; the British have special shopping zones for the Chinese so they can shop in safety. This will go towards digital, and business will determine how this goes.

    To put it simply, there is profit in keeping people safe. More profit in keeping people safe than there is in giving welfare to trash in cities to deal drugs and attack people.
