According to a recent allegation, the Chinese government is allegedly using cutting-edge artificial intelligence to track the thoughts of several Communist party officials.
Chinese researchers are claimed to have created software that can deftly assess the brain activity and facial expressions of people to determine whether they were paying attention to thinking and political instruction.
Over the past ten years, China’s strict police state has been dramatically expanded, combining big data, machine learning, facial recognition technologies, and artificial intelligence to create what many have called the most sophisticated digital dictatorship in the world.
The high-tech progress, according to the Hefei Comprehensive National Science Centre, will be utilized to reinforce their confidence and resolve to be thankful to the party, pay attention to the party, and follow the party.
In a brief video, a subject was shown cycling through exercises promoting party doctrine while staring at a screen at a kiosk. Researchers claim that the kiosk’s technology was able to track the researchers’ facial expressions and determine how they reacted to various bits of material.
According to the institution, it urged the study team’s 43 party members to attend parties while being observed by the new software.
On July 1, the video report was released, however it is no longer available.
The Communist Party’s secretary and head of the 1.4 billion-person country, President Xi, has previously vowed complete devotion to the party and stated that political and intellectual education is a fundamental component of the state’s policy.
Back in 2019, the Chinese state-backed journal Study Times reported on the creation of a similar artificial intelligence, suggesting algorithms could be used to determine the mental health of party members and ensure that information may reach both their heads and hearts.
The change is only the latest in Xi Jinping’s persistent drive to turn the world’s most populous country into a technology wasteland.
A computerized social credit system tracking a score is increasingly popular in some parts of China. Those who are judged untrustworthy by the government run the danger of losing fundamental rights like booking a flight.
A poor social credit score may also bar you from well-paying employment, prevent you from obtaining a mortgage or vehicle loan, and even prevent you from reserving a hotel room. Your internet speed will be slowed, your kids won’t be allowed to attend private schools, and the government may even publish your name on a public blacklist for everyone to see.
