According to a recent report in China’s state-run Global Times newspaper, Chinese people are increasingly becoming accustomed to the use of “emotion recognition technology,” which is artificial intelligence that essentially allows the government to track human feelings. The article illustrated the usefulness of this technology by providing an example in which police arrest passengers of a car after using artificial intelligence to discover drugs in their car. Below is that example: “At a busy highway checkpoint, artificial intelligence (AI) pre-warning systems silently observe drivers and passengers in vehicles passing through. Seconds later, security officers stop a car with passengers looking strangely nervous and discover drugs in the car.” Reportedly, “emotion recognition technology” tells the officers that the passengers are more nervous than the average person at a checkpoint, which they then use as an excuse to search the car.
