AI POLICE STATE: China to use technology to predict crimes BEFORE they happen

CHINA is hoping to use artificial intelligence (AI) to look into the future and help police predict crimes BEFORE they have even been committed.

One of the ways China is hoping to peek into the future is with facial recognition firm Cloud Walk which is trialling software that gathers data on where people are what they are doing.


Quote:
For example, if a citizen is to visit a weapons shop then the firm can combine this with other data to assess the individuals chance of committing a crime.

Cloud Walk spokesperson Fu Xiaolong said: “The police are using a big-data rating system to rate highly suspicious groups of people based on where they go and what they do.”

He added that the risk rises if the person “frequently visits transport hubs and goes to suspicious places like a knife store”.


Quote:
Another way that the police can use AI to predict crimes is through algorithms that use “crowd analysis” to detect “suspicious” patterns of individuals to determine if they are a thief, for example.

It can also be used to monitor “high risk” locations, such as knife and hammer shops.


Cloud Walk spokesperson Fu Xiaolong wrote:
“Of course, if someone buys a kitchen knife that’s OK, but if the person also buys a sack and a hammer later, that person is becoming suspicious.”


Quote:
“We can use re-ID to find people who look suspicious by walking back and forth in the same area, or who are wearing masks.

“With re-ID, it’s also possible to reassemble someone’s trail across a large area.”
