The 2019 novel coronavirus epidemic has basically come to an end. Even in CN, people no longer need to wear masks. However, I have decided to continue wearing masks. Not only that, I will also wear sunglasses when going out in the future. Many people around me don't understand and even think it's just for show, but it's not. So why do I do this?
Last year, when I was making a face payment at a certain offline store, I found that I could still make a successful payment even with a mask on. At that moment, I realized the problem. This is different from the facial recognition at CN train stations or on mobile phones. Train stations require real-name registration, where we scan our ID cards and then undergo facial recognition. Some self-service facial recognition devices at certain train stations already support facial recognition with masks. However, this is similar to facial recognition on mobile phones, where the device recognizes your face when it already knows who you are, comparing your facial information, which is relatively simple. But the facial recognition device for offline payments doesn't initially know who we are, yet it can identify us from a massive amount of data within a few seconds, and it has already been applied in the financial payment field, which is quite terrifying.
In summary, let's define this technology. It is real-time identity verification based on facial recognition technology. It uses high-definition cameras and deep learning algorithms to detect and recognize facial features, thereby achieving real-time verification of personal identity. Unlike traditional facial recognition technology, it can perform facial recognition in highly complex scenarios, such as when wearing masks, and can quickly and accurately identify and match target individuals from a massive amount of data. In the following text, this technology will be referred to as Technology A.
Based on my previous analysis, there is a tendency for monopoly interest groups to excessively collect information, especially monopoly economic interest groups and monopoly political interest groups.
If they use Technology A, what can they do? Taking monopoly economic interest groups as an example (the rest can be imagined), they can collect facial information of people in their own offline stores, office spaces, and devices with cameras that they sell, and use this technology to obtain people's status in order to achieve: personalized pricing based on big data; strict assessment and management of employees, further dehumanization... and so on, these are just well-known examples. As for "group buying" and even exploiting vulnerabilities in mobile phones to attack users with virus software... (multiple security agencies in CN, Kaspersky from Russia, and Google have all criticized it, but the CN government has not taken any public action so far. I admit that their products are cheap, but I suggest using mini-programs to make purchases).
Technology A can recognize you even when wearing a mask, so it can be strengthened to recognize sunglasses as well.
Or go a step further: only operate and stay in areas where relevant laws are well-established.
And promote the improvement of XXXX.
