>Chinese authorities have begun deploying a new surveillance tool: “gait recognition” software that uses people’s body shapes and how they walk to identify them, even when their faces are hidden from cameras. https://apnews.com/article/bf75dd1c26c947b7826d270a16e2658a It's all so tiresome. And I know this is old, I just got reminded of it today.
Wasn't this in Little Brother?
>>5964 The US had this technology in the 90s, it's a problem now only because the Chinese can do it. What's tiresome is the incessant projection of the western media.
>>5978 I don't care whether it's Chinese or American, why bring it up?
>>5979 You brought it up.
>>5978 >>5980 No one cares.
>>5964 I'm so tired of the ever-increasing number of cameras around where I live. It might be for different reasons to anprims but if I had the money I'd go live far away from cities.
>>5982 Wear a mask. Now because of covid, everyone is expected to. Once the pandemic is done, I'm going to continue wearing masks.
>>5986 In my country they passed a law against covering your face a couple of months before the pandemic started. Funny how the world works sometimes.

>>5964 epic pic. >>5988 those laws are incredibly dystopian. criminals will obviously wear masks regardless. so the most damaged people are non-criminals. I'm honestly glad that wearing a mask is becoming the norm. fuck facial recognition. Not that it's relevant in my god forsaken city...
Remember to smash cameras whenever you can.
>>5964 I hate surveillance tech TBH. Like everything else it's inevitably going to be abused AF
>>6476 Are there any leftists who don't, really?
>>6478 I guess "organic" surveillance where the Stasi asks your neighbour to write reports about what you do is okay?
>>5982 My city is at a point where there’s literally nowhere to smoke weed that isn’t in front of a camera. I just gave up and just let started letting these fuckers watch me. If people start disappearing I’m going to have to leave this country.
>>6485 Cope druggie.
