High school uses facial recognition cameras to see if students are dozing off
China continues to invest heavily in facial recognition, ignoring privacy concerns
From now on, students at a Hangzhou high school have to make sure they pay attention in class.
One student who admitted they used to take naps now says they feel there's always "a pair of mystery eyes" watching.
Not surprisingly, the system has raised privacy and ethical concerns. But the school argues that the system only gathers patterns of the students’ behavior, but doesn’t keep any video recording of the classes.
