Facial recognition has taken off in China. Perhaps the most widely implemented use case, facial recognition is used to deter jaywalkers, track attention and behavior in schools, catch criminals, monitor live streamers, and more.

  • How is facial recognition being used now?
  • What are the local attitudes toward the technology?
