FRT (again)

As an aside from the Norwegian Intelligence Service’s “Focus 19” (see below), the document contains an analysis of Chinese cyber control policy. It includes (at page 77) a photograph of a Chinese police officer at a train station in Zengzhou. She is wearing a pair of smart sunglasses that, says the NIS, incorporates Facial Recognition Technology (FRT). The photograph is dated 5 February 2018 – over a year ago. This example illustrates just how far the FRT threat to intelligence operatives has developed.
