Pentagon: China is preparing to sell Russia the technology of total digital surveillance

Humanity is entering an era of "digital authoritarianism," said Pentagon chief Mark Esper during a symposium on artificial intelligence organized by his department.

In his words, China is actively introducing technology total digital surveillance of the population, based on artificial intelligence and facial recognition, and is going to share it with "authoritarian regimes" who sympathize with Beijing. He also ranked Russia among such undemocratic countries, announcing that Beijing is preparing to sell this technology to Moscow in order to simplify the authorities' control over Russians, facilitating the creation of the notorious “digital concentration camp”.

Esper explained that China is building a "police state of the XNUMXst century" and the Chinese Communist Party is going to use these technologies for their own purposes. He clarified that hundreds of millions of video cameras and billions of data collection points make it possible to identify any dissenting person.

This is unprecedented surveillance of its own people

Esper stressed.

Note that the Ministry of Public Security of the PRC began to implement the video recognition system in 2015. It is expected that in 2022, this system will use more than 600 million cameras that will be able to identify a person even by walking. At the same time, the Social Credit System (SCS) is being tested in three dozen large Chinese cities.

The core of the System is social rating. An integral assessment of human behavior according to the criteria of benevolence and openness to society, adherence to national traditions and adherence to the "Chinese dream" - building socialism with Chinese characteristics. Depending on his behavior, he can gain or lose points

- told the online publication Adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, executive secretary of the expanded working group on reforming the Internal Affairs Directorate of Russia, Major General of the Police, retired Vladimir Ovchinsky.

He explained that the Chinese authorities decided to combine all the information about their citizens into one giant database, replacing the usual passports or other documents with a lifetime personal electronic identifier with an 18-bit code. After a while, it will be possible to buy housing, get a job or just go to the Internet, only through it.

      Our single the correct version of democracy is not totalitarianism!

    In the fascist "democratic" USA, this "digital concentration camp" with total "undemocratic" surveillance has existed for a long time (even the American authorities themselves make true films about it), and the state capitalist "communist" China, it turns out, is so long as it lags behind the fascist bourgeois ?! winked

    - Ha ... if "the chef doesn't lie to us" (and Americans can easily lie); then ... then ... then all this Chinese "invisible and total" ... - in real life ... - the real "the day before yesterday" ...
    - The most advanced total surveillance of its population was in the GDR ...
    - The GDR had the most powerful intelligence service "Stasi"; which kept watch over its population so that it literally knew all the details about its population (literally about every citizen of the GDR) ...
    - This "Stasi" even collected the smells of people; and even about other "other details and preferences" (and "piquant" as well) of each person, there is nothing to say ... - each person was just ... - at a glance ...
    - After the disappearance of the GDR ... - the Israeli "Mossad" and other "import intelligence" a lot of sympathy (adopted) from this "Stasi" ...
    - Of course ... - there was no such advanced technology then; but the Stasi already then used the most super sophisticated scientific and technical equipment and the most super modern methods from the field of medicine, psychology and neurosurgery (impact on the physiology and the human body) ...
    - As for the Chinese, they themselves do not know today ... - what is the population of China ...
    - Let them first count their own; and then they are "followed" ...

    An honest person has nothing to fear. And it's still unpleasant when someone spies on you. "I don't like" - Vysotsky. The world has become a policeman and a military man.

    It is not true, this is barter, we give them a global warning system, they are a global surveillance system.

    Of course not. There is even no processing of all Internet traffic with DPI. The failed attempt to block the telegrams was indicative.
    We need large Internet nodes with the possibility of advanced processing of general traffic and protected video streams from surveillance cameras, etc.
    You need a huge amount of server hardware, routers, data centers.
    China has this hardware and some kind of basic software for the global management of this infrastructure.
    At home, they realized it.
