Chinese Spy Cameras are Rolling Out Across 100s of Countries Worldwide

The Infinite Brief
Chinese company Huawei is in the process of rolling out camera systems designed for snooping across the planet.

In a promotional brochure, Huawei says its video surveillance technology can scan over long distances to detect “abnormal behavior” such as loitering, track the movement of cars and people, calculate crowd size and send alerts to a command center if it detects something suspicious.

In view of the cybersecurity accusations leveled by the U.S. and international rights groups against Huawei, the relationship between China and countries that use the company’s technology is coming under renewed scrutiny.

A growing number of countries are following China’s lead in deploying artificial intelligence to track citizens.
