Advanced Technology For Surveillance Cameras in China
Facial Recognition Cameras
China recently developed a new technology of facial recognition cameras with the help of AI-powered CCTV cameras.
These surveillance cameras can automatically identify a person. They can also recognize the gender, and type and color of the clothing of a person.

The Chinese government has fixed ten million surveillance cameras in public areas.
