For example, an alarm should be triggered on the system even if an affected person checks in at the hotel.
China’s Henan province is building a facial recognition tracking system targeting foreign journalists and students, as well as other suspects. The tender, published on Tuesday, states that Chennai authorities plan to connect around 3,000 cameras to national and regional databases. DPA you write about it.
For example, an alarm should sound on the system even if an affected person checks in to a hotel, buys a ticket, or crosses a county border. The surveillance system should consist of 2,000 police officers.
Journalists will be stratified based on the three colors of traffic lights – red, yellow and green – in order to determine the degree of urgency of their monitoring, the DPA explains.
The monitoring system is said to include the “disposal” category.
Face recognition must be accurate even if the observed person is covered with a face or glasses, as the description states. The US-based research firm IPVM, which discovered the online tender, said the tracking system is “different from anything” researchers have discovered so far.
The journalist tracking system reportedly also includes a “disposal” category, the DPA wrote. The contract for the project announced in July was won by Chinese software and IT company Neusoft, as determined by IPVM.
The Department of Political Affairs said several attempts to obtain an opinion from a Chinese company have so far been unsuccessful. It is also not known whether similar monitoring systems are being set up – or are already in operation – in other Chinese provinces.
