China rolls out social credit system to spy on population.
People with low social credit scores can be prevented from traveling and lose career opportunities.
At the end of the administrative herding. Adolf Eichmann’s administrative dream.
From Xi the fascist that came in from the left.
China’s “social credit sytem” is a real-life “Black Mirror” nightmare.
September 19, 2018China’s chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards by which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behavior. The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.An active pilot program has already seen millions of people each assigned a score out of 800 and either reap its benefits or suffer its consequences — depending on which end of the scale they sit.Under the social credit scheme, points are lost and gained based on readings from a sophisticated network of 200 million surveillance cameras — a figure set to triple in 18 months.The program has been enabled by rapid advances in facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking.The data is combined with information collected from individuals’ government records — including medical and educational — along with their financial and internet browsing histories. Overall scores can go up and down in “real time” dependent on the person’s behavior, but they can also be affected by people they associate with.“If your best friend or your dad says something negative about the government, you’ll lose points too,” the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC) reports.
The mandatory “social credit” system was first announced in 2014 in a bid to reinforce the notion that “keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful,” according to a government document.
In an episode on the ABC’s “Foreign Correspondent,” financial credit system Jie Cong, Tianjin general manager for financial credit system Alipay, summarized the system in black and white.
“If people keep their promises they can go anywhere in the world,” he said. “If people break their promises they won’t be able to move an inch.”
Under the system, those deemed to be “top citizens” are rewarded bonus points.
The benefits of being ranked on the higher end of the scale include waived deposits on hotels and rental cars, VIP treatment at airports, discounted loans, priority job applications and fast-tracking to the most prestigious universities.
Dandan, a young mother and marketing professional, is proud of her high score. If she keeps it up her infant son will be more likely to get into a top school.
“China likes to experiment in this creative way…I think people in every country want a stable and safe society,” she said.
“We need a social credit system. We hope we can help each other, love each other and help everyone to become prosperous.”
Bottom of the scale
But it doesn’t take much to end up on the wrong side of the scale, with an estimated 10 million people already paying the price of a low rating.
Jaywalking, late payments on bills or taxes, buying too much alcohol or speaking out against the government each cost citizens points.
Other mooted punishable offenses include spending too long playing video games, wasting money on frivolous purchases and posting on social media, according to Business Insider.
Penalties range from losing the right to travel by plane or train, social media account suspensions and being barred from government jobs.
Chinese journalist Liu Hu is one of the millions who has already amassed a low social credit rating. Liu Hu was arrested, jailed and fined after he exposed official corruption.
“The government regards me as an enemy,” Liu Hu told the ABC.
He is now banned from traveling by plane or fast train. His social media accounts with millions of followers have been suspended. He struggles to find work.
“This kind of social control is against the tide of the world. The Chinese people’s eyes are blinded and their ears are blocked. They know little about the world and are living in an illusion,” Hu said.
Uighur poet and filmmaker Tahir Hamut, who fled to the US, told the ABC that China’s surveillance system “suddenly ramped up after the end of 2016.”
“Since then, advanced surveillance technology which we’ve never seen, never experienced, never heard of, started appearing,” he said.
Communist China will use a ‘social credit score’ to rank its citizens and give those with the most favoured behaviour perks
- The project rates citizens based on their behaviour – both positive and negative
- Benefits include priority public housing, travel visas and job promotions
- Those with a negative score can be blacklisted and not allowed to get a flight
- The system is made possible by the growing network of surveillance that uses artificial intelligence to identify people and vehicles

All of China‘s 1.4 billion citizens are about to be put under greater scrutiny as the country prepares to launch its ‘social credit score’ scheme.
The project rates citizens based on their behaviour, and those who do not play by the rules are added to a list that prohibits them from certain luxuries.
Fears are growing regarding the ethical implications of scheme, with some questioning the morality of the big-brother culture.
The government is likely to use its rapidly growing surveillance network to enforce the system, with some academics growing concerned that it may be manipulated to enforce the ideology of the ruling Communist party.
Benefits of cooperating with the state include priority public housing, travel visas and job promotions.
One journalist says he is banned from sending his children to private school or buying property after a court ordered him to apologize for an unfavourable tweet about the regime.
This is all made possible by the ever-increasing network of surveillance cameras in the Asian country.
Xu Li, CEO of Sensetime, one of China’s most successful artificial intelligence companies, said: ‘It can recognise more than 4,000 vehicles.
‘We can tell whether it is an adult, a child, male or female.’
China launched a pilot version of the scheme in 2010 in a province just north of Shanghai.
This pilot system provides incentives for those with a high social credit score such as priority access to public housing, travel visas and job promotions.
The system is currently labelled as optional but the Chinese government plans to make it mandatory and publicly available by 2020.
Liu Hu, a journalist in China, told CBS News that when he tried to book a flight, he was told he was banned from flying because he was on a list of untrustworthy people.
Mr Liu was issued with a court order to apologise for a series of tweets he wrote and was then told his apology was insincere.
As a result his score dropped and he found himself on the list of undesirables.
‘I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school,’ he said.
‘You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time.’ (Note: How Nazi – ish)
According to Ken Dewoskin, an expert in China’s economic and political culture, revealed in an interview the damage and implications this system could have.
He says how the new scoring system truly works is kept secret and could be easily abused by the government.
Mr Dewoskin said: ‘The government and the people running the plan would like it to go as deeply as possible to determine how to allocate benefits and also how to impact and shape their behaviour.’
The system has raised many ethical concerns around the world, with scholars debating the morale issues created by such a universal and publicly accessible database.
Experts published research last year in the journal Marketing Intelligence and Planning which looked at how the gamification of life would affect people.
They claim the system could be manipulated by the government to create universal conformity to the ideologies presented by the ruling communist party.
Audrey Murrell, Director of the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership at the University of Pittsburgh writes in an article for Forbes: ‘It is one thing to reward positive behaviour, but one could argue that the introduction of penalties for ‘untrustworthiness’ produces consequences for lack of adherence to government-mandated social behaviours.’
Shariaing is cairing.
China’s Orwellian Social Credit System is expaning overseas
By Michael Grothaus
The system assigns Chinese citizens a social credit score based on their social, political, and economic behavior. A bad score affects a Chinese citizen’s ability to travel via train or plane and can even stop a person from getting a good job or staying at a nice hotel. The system works by using big data, AI, and mass surveillance to monitor citizens in whatever they do. And now, the social credit system is extending outside of China’s borders.
A report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute says China’s social credit system will begin expanding past China’s borders to monitor Chinese citizens wherever they are globally. The system will also start applying to international companies that do business in China. As a result, the social credit system is not just shaping the behaviors of Chinese citizens beyond their border but international companies as well. If an international business gets a low social credit score, it could lead to fines for the company, higher interest rates for loans, or even the blacklisting of its products.
The threat of a negative social credit ranking recently pressured international airlines based in the U.S. and Australia to remove Taiwan on their international websites. It is feared that as China continues to roll out its social credit rating to businesses, those companies will feel they have no choice but to adhere to the Chinese Communist Party’s ideologies and worldview if they want to keep operating in the country.
Facebook has confirmed that it now ranks some of its users on a trustworthiness scale, prompting comparisons to China’s Social Credit System.
The social media giant reportedly assigns users with a reputation score between zero and one. According to the Washington Post, who broke the story, Facebook has been developing the system over the past year.
It forms part of a wider crackdown on fake news and misinformation, a scheme first started by Facebook in 2016.
It’s “not uncommon for people to tell us something is false simply because they disagree with the premise of a story or they’re intentionally trying to target a particular publisher,” Tessa Lyons, Facebook’s product manager in charge of fighting misinformation, told the Washington Post.The revelation has drawn widespread criticism. Matthew McKenna, VP EMEA at SecurityScorecard, described the news as “concerning”. He called for greater transparency about how the score is calculated and for users to be able to view their score to improve it.
“For any scoring or rating system to be effective, whether for business or people, these foundational principles are a must,” he said.
Made in China
Morten Brogger, CEO of encrypted communications platform Wire, compared it to a social rating system being developed in China that makes use of big data analytics.
“Refusing to be on a level playing field with customers in this manner is reminiscent of a proposed Chinese Social Credit System, which will give people a ‘social credit score’ based on their interactions with digital applications,” he said.
“Whilst this method is state-run in China, it is now being privatised in the West.”
While the Social Credit System is planned to be fully implemented by 2020, there are already some pilot systems in place.
Most of these involve financial credit ratings, but apps such as Honest Shanghai go much further. The app uses facial recognition and national ID numbers to gather data and assign them a public credit score.
According to Shanghai’s Commission of Economy and Information deputy director Shao Zhiqing, the goal of the app is to help “residents learn they’ll be rewarded if they’re honest”.
The app rewards good citizens by offering discounts and other rewards for good behaviour.
It has drawn comparisons to an episode of Black Mirror, which is set in a world where people rate each other on every interaction. Better ratings improve a person’s socioeconomic status, whereas bad ratings can cause their prospects to nosedive.
Facebook rating score: Room for improvement
Brogger says that a lack of transparency could be harmful to Facebook’s already fragile reputation.
“Pigeonholing users into ‘trust’ categories is a dangerous game to play, and Facebook is playing with fire if they continue to shut users out,” he said.
“Gaining user trust is make or break for any organisation. Companies need to ensure that the applications they use are fully open sourced and independently audited, so their software can be held to account if they are to instill that trust.”
Note: Nothing to worry about. NSA and the CIA are already doing it. Question: How do you hold software to account? What a genius! That would be an expert. Let’s get back to “open source”.
