Hikvision Touts Ethnicity Analytics

You have seen marketing demos for gender and age, but Hikvision is taking it to the next level, declaring:

This new intelligence can differentiate between a man or a woman, it can tell their age or even their ethnicity. It’s exciting to see where this technology is today, but even more so to see where we can take it to the next level [emphasis added]

Not a common claim and it is pretty amazing considering there are hundreds of ethnic groups, etc. Curious to see how well it works or does not.

And can you imagine the political implications and potential for misuse of automatic ethnicity classification? In fairness, for Hikvision, as a division of an autocratic Chinese government, that is less of a concern.

Update: IPVM has confirmed Hikvision is shipping ethnic minority analytics inside of China.
