CHINA - Artificial Intelligence Will Track You Soon

Arno Froese

“City Brain,” an artificial intelligence system that interlinks with a city’s infrastructure was installed in October 2016, through a partnership with Alibaba and Foxconn.

In an effort to optimize Hangzhou and make urban life easier, the system tracked everything from robberies to traffic jams and learned the city’s unique patterns and needs.

“In China, people have less concern with privacy, which allows us to move faster,” Xian-Sheng Hua, an AI manager at Alibaba, said during a presentation at the World Summit AI meeting in early October.

And, according to New Scientist, the system works.

Crime, car crashes and rush hour traffic is all down. The system can predict traffic jams and adjust the traffic lights in order to avoid congestion before it begins. It can also keep track of criminals, making it easier for police to catch them. And it automatically notifies authorities when it detects so much as an illegally parked car.

City Brain has apparently been such a success that it’s already being packaged for other cities across China and, eventually, the world., 25 October 2017

Arno's commentary

We continue to focus on communist China, highlighting their super success.

The US population generally has a negative opinion of communist China, due to the immense volume of cheap products imported from that country. But that mentality is actually very positive for the communists, because underestimating the power and intelligence of a political identity in opposition to the Western world, will contribute to China’s even faster accumulation of knowledge—which in turn will spread to, as the article states: “…other cities across China and, eventually, the world.”
