A rising superpower. Worth a thread of its own - one that could cover a multitude of topics.

Let’s start with Huawei. Much in the news in 2019 (Remember Gavin Williamson getting sacked as Defence Secretary. Wonder what ever happened to him?:unsure:

Anyway, Huawei back in the news today. That trustworthy company always said none of its [facial recognition] technologies was designed to identify ethnic groups.
But it has just come to light that one of its patents includes a system to identify people who appear to be of Uighur origin among images of pedestrians!!

Apparently they are about to try to get the Chinese patent office to allow them to delete reference to the Uighurs in the patent text.

All a bit sinister IMO.
