China Is Monitoring Employees’ Brain Waves and Emotions
Chinese businesses and the military are monitoring employees’ brain activity and emotions. The ’emotional surveillance technology’ helps employers identify mood shifts so they can change break times, an employee’s task, or even send them home. The technology reportedly increases productivity and profitability, with one company claiming its profits jumped by $315 million.
Emotional surveillance adds to a wide surveillance network of facial recognition and internet censorship across China.
