Software software developed by Alibaba can easily identify any Uighur and other religious minorities present in a crowded picture or video. He has promoted this on a website he created for his cloud computing business.
According to an investigation by Surveillance Industry Publications, the software was created to detect terrorists, pornography and other prohibited items, but UAGAR was shown as these prohibited sections for propaganda. Alibaba also said that people can help the government in their identification and monitoring. The Chinese government has imprisoned about 1 million Ugars. Thousands of people have been kept in camps to prevent mental and physical torture.
Remove content if questions arise
Alibaba removed the content from the website when inquired about the content of the questionnaire. The techniques and minorities were used to explain the technique, the statement said. However, he could not explain why the technology of identifying different minorities in the crowd should reach the masses.
As we know, Alibaba is considered to be the only competitor of Amazon. Its shares are also listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
