AI Emotion-Detection Software Tested on Uyghurs

A camera system that uses AI and facial recognition intended to reveal states of emotion has been tested on Uyghurs in Xinjiang, the BBC has been told.

A software engineer claimed to have installed such systems in police stations in the province. A human rights advocate who was shown the evidence described it as shocking.
