Smart glasses are linked to an internal database that stores information about criminals. And according to the report, they have been successful in identifying seven people suspected of human trafficking and hit-and-run accidents, as well as another 26 people using fake IDs, as of 5 February.

It says officers are able to respond before suspects are able to blend back into a crowd, helping them to maintain contact in any pursuit. Officers wearing the special glasses are stationed at four entrances to the train station.

China now boasts the largest monitoring system in the world, with approximately 176 million CCTV cameras in public and private hands. The cameras now has some setbacks with facial recognition tech, as they're stationary devices and deliver blurry imagery.

Uma Thurman Reveals Horrifying Kill Bill Ordeal With Tarantino And Weinstein
Weinstein had invited Thurman to his room for a meeting about a script in a Paris hotel, where he was dressed in a bathrobe. Thurman described her behavior as "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard" as she did her best to get away from him.

Chinese Police have started using facial recognition glasses to aid their fight against crime and criminals.

Given that the lunar new year is one of the busiest travel periods in China where more than 389 million train trips are expected, the ambitious plan to augment the use of augmented reality (AR) and Big Data could work wonders for China and its population. During this holiday, hundreds of millions (if not billions) of Chinese people will be traveling across the country to get together with their family. Many of these feature some form of AI, including facial recognition. Furthermore, it also allows the government to control the movement of minorities with confiscated identity documents who often have to wait years to acquire passports.

It also plans to offer more bundled deals for Nest and Google home devices, and may integrate Google accounts into the Nest app. Hopefully, they will keep the tagline Made by Google on each product as we can see on the Pixel and Chromecasts.

Nee added, "Since there are already many surveillance cameras in many parts of China already, this move to equip individual police officers with facial-recognition cameras probably shouldn't be seen as a major shift in policing strategy". Maybe they will be pulling off your personal information.

Skewed results aren't the only concern that comes with giving law enforcement wearable surveillance: many have also pointed out that the devices could lend themselves to racial profiling, and even more broadly, have the potential to infringe on citizens' privacy.
