By Isabella Cheng, Published Oct 05, 2020, 10:56am EDT (Info+)

China's Sharp Eyes project mandated 100% surveillance coverage of public areas by the end of 2020. Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province, has installed at least 40,000 cameras as a response to this, including advanced AI and facial recognition.

The system informed police an elderly man left his building in the morning and hadn't returned in the evening. The police were able to contact him and his family members to make sure he was fine. It turns out he was just staying at his daughter's house for a few days.

General question. Would Sharp Eyes be able to do the reverse? For example, if an elderly person does not leave her/his home for a few days, could the system send an alert to the person's family or a caregiver or the local police to do a check-in?

Great question, Robert. According to the article that reported the scenario we introduced in the report, yes. The system is set up to issue an alert if the resident leaves their apartment and doesn't return within 12 hours or if no one has been detected to enter/leave the apartment in 2 days. However, I haven't personally read any anecdotes where the reverse has been reported.

Thanks, Isabella! Seems like a useful feature even though "ethnic minority detection" is a little concerning!
