Вспышка коронавируса является серьезным испытанием для российской сети распознавания лиц
Россия хочет последовать примеру Китая в борьбе с вирусом с помощью технологий, но ее системы находятся в зачаточном состоянии.
21 февраля, когда коронавирус заявил о своих первых жертвах в Италии и Иране, мэр Москвы Сергей Собянин зашел в свой официальный блог, чтобы успокоить граждан российской столицы.
Подчеркнув, что пока Москва еще не заражена вирусом, он объявил о ряде новых мер по его сохранению. Гражданам Китая будет запрещен въезд в Россию, тех, кто уже находится в России, будут выслеживать и отслеживать, а потенциальных перевозчиков будут отдавать в самоизоляцию.
Это будет осуществляться «с помощью наших автоматизированных систем распознавания лиц и других технологических средств».
Это будет крупнейшее испытание для зарождающейся, но расширяющейся сети камер распознавания лиц.
С самого начала вспышки коронавируса Китай, являющийся страной с самыми обширными в мире системами распознавания лиц, использует эту технологию для обеспечения карантина, отслеживания носителей и даже выявления новых случаев.
Теоретически, у России есть все шансы последовать примеру Китая, но в реальности все сложнее. Хотя сама Москва очень хорошо покрыта за пределами столицы и небольшой сети в Санкт-Петербурге, охват распознавания лиц остается очень ограниченным.
