As Russian cities go into lockdown to try to contain coronavirus, Moscow is using the latest technology to keep track of residents on real time.
City officials are using a giant network of tens of thousands of cameras (all building entrances, all bus stops, all playgrounds, all super-markets, all shopping malls etc… ) – installed with facial recognition software – which they plan to couple with digital passes on people’s mobile phones. It’s prompted serious concern about whether such widespread surveillance will ever be rolled back – probably not.
