A patent application authored by Huawei and the PRC government includes Uyghur-detection analytics, in the latest proof that the China tech giant uses this explicitly racist technology.

This comes after IPVM and The Washington Post exposed last month that Huawei and Megvii, a Chinese facial recognition startup, tested and validated 'Uyghur alarms', provoking a global controversy when a French soccer star dropped Huawei as a sponsor.

Now, IPVM has found that Huawei, Megvii, and several other PRC tech companies have filed patents in China for various devices and systems that include Uyghur and ethnic minority detection.

IPVM is publishing this article in conjunction with the BBC, which has done its own investigation.



Background

In China, AI software that can automatically detect whether someone's face is Uyghur is

widely deployed across police security camera networks. The systems generally detect whether someone's face looks Uyghur, Han (China's ethnic majority), or 'other', meaning they specifically target Uyghurs, a highly repressed minority.

The PRC government has even included these analytics in facial recognition guidelines. Many top China security camera manufacturers offer 'Uyghurs analytics', including the country's three largest: Hikvision, Dahua, and Uniview.

Huawei And PRC Government Patent

In a July 2018 patent application jointly authored by Huawei and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) for the "identification of pedestrian attributes", Uyghurs are referenced as one "race" that "can be" detected in the "target" pedestrian:


For example, the target object is a pedestrian. The attributes of the target object can be gender (male, female), age (such as teenagers, middle-aged, old), race (Han, Uyghur), body (fat, thin, standard), top [clothing] style (short sleeve, long sleeve), top color (black, red, blue, green, white, yellow), etc. [emphasis added]
The patent overall is described as being for an "object attribute recognition method, device, computing equipment and system". CAS is the PRC government's top research arm, with a $15 billion budget last year. The PRC government has been widely criticized for repressing Uyghurs.

This is why these companies are a security risk. They are tracking people based on their religion, ethnicities, and race for the CCP - for the sole purpose of them being arrested, tortured, kidnapped, and or jailed for being, in this case, FOR BEING A MUSLIM

It's a CIA work.

CIA can't send agents to do terrorism in China, because they are easily tracked.

That is why.

They hope thru propaganda in the media will pressure China government not to tracking Uighurs people.

And then, not long after, BAM!!! you heard a terrorist attack in China killed hundreds of people on the street.

And then another BAM and BAM!!!


It's not about Uighurs, even Han, and whatever people in China are tracked by the government with face recognition.

If you ever read a criminal arrested in China thru the street CCTV in the news, you know what I mean.

China's government is tracking everyone.
