Hikvision Wins PRC Police Project To Predict Protesters Entering Capital
Hikvision is contracted to build a sweeping "combat platform" for PRC police that live-tracks protestors and even predicts the chance of them entering Beijing, in a bid "to achieve precise control".
The platform includes a map that displays "petitioners" and other "key people" for police to "intercept" as soon as possible using a wide variety of data including facial recognition cameras, license plate numbers, hotel check-in information, and more. The system also includes methods to catch those who attempt "anti-reconnaissance" techniques.
But the "truly intelligent" police platform goes even further by creating a "risk analysis model" to "predict" the "risk" of a protestor entering Beijing, even churning out "social attribute" scores for each "target person".
This comes as Beijing prepares for the 20th Party Congress, a major event held only once every 5 years, with authorities concerned about any potential instability. IPVM sent this report to the The New York Times, which covered this Hikvision project in its own investigation into PRC surveillance.
Hikvision did not respond to IPVM and declined to comment to the NYT.
