Welcome to the future.

After leading the charge globally in manufacturing hardware, China has its sights set on a major technological achievement: developing a facial recognition system to visually identify all 1.3 billion citizens nationwide.

South China Morning Post noted that the project has been in the works since 2015; the country’s Ministry of Public Security has tasked Shanghai-based security firm Isvision to build the system and database. The goal is to use a network of cameras around the country to ID people within three seconds with an accuracy level of 88 percent or higher.
