VigilantFox: 'Wow': Western Woman Shows How 'Convenient' It Is to Give Total Control to the CCP

Face recognition payment is now the norm in China — no phone or card is needed.

"That's so convenient. The first time I see such a machine without any devices to pay. Wow!"

But not so wow the moment you behave in a way the government doesn't like...







No...

I had heard earlier this year that Air France was utilizing similar technology. Weird.
I saw and photographed signs in US airports around 2020 touting this face-scanning airline system.
The system didnt / doesnt exist yet in the US, but the official signs were made up and over in a storage area. You better believe it is coming.

I saw a similar thing in my local grocery story during the covid lockdowns. Weeks before there was any lockdown or masking, I saw the reverse side of a sign, poorly covered up, was printed with the "MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER" warning on them, and sure enough, a month later, they revealed these signs and masks were required to enter.

So you will one day soon scan your face to fly in the US. The sad thing is, it will be seen by many as an improvement over having to deal with a TSA agent (I almost agree that it is less orwellian) so it will be readily adopted with little to no complaints.

If for some reason it's not readily adopted, they'll just let you do something you could always do before on a plane, like keep your shoes on, and compliance will shoot up to 99.9%. Again, this was all tested during covid. Give you back some small freedom, while still being repressive, and the people will comply. Perhaps that was the whole point of the lockdowns anyway, to test us for rolling out systems like this and figure out the best ways to get full compliance.

In fact here's a NYT article telling us it's coming, 2 years ago.


More steps — from checking a bag to clearing customs — are being automated using biometrics.

The need for social distancing and contactless interactions only added to the urgency.

lol.. yeah, safer to touch some glass fingerprint screen that every other traveler rubs their hand on than give a paper boarding pass to a TSA agent?

In its recently released 2021 passenger survey, the International Air Transport Association found that 73 percent of passengers are willing to share their biometric data to improve airport processes, up from 46 percent in 2019.

Massive increase in acceptance after covid-19.

Delta allows international fliers to use their face as their boarding pass at eight airports, including Minneapolis and Kennedy. Biometric boarding is optional and anyone wishing to be manually processed can use a boarding pass and passport.

It's always optional at first.

It might not have rolled out yet... but there's no doubt in my mind that it's already been tested & perfected with our data already loaded into it!

Dunno if you heard about our Freedom Convoy we had in Canada last year... but when I read that the Government was considering removing the license of the Truckers who took part of it... I said to myself how would they know?

Surely most of them would've covered their plates & company #... and there's no way the Popo was equipped to tag them all... so that's when I knew they tagged everyone via face recognition @ that event. Plus they temporarily froze the assets of some who donated... probably to identify the Patriots!!

Anyway Stay Strong :)

10 banking innovations Finopolis 2022
14.11.22
This year, a whole city called Finoland has grown up at the Finopolis forum with its bank, supermarket, metro, museum, hospital and business center. A young IT specialist Dmitry agreed to take a walk with us through Finoland and test many banking services.

1. Digital Ruble
Forum visitors were the first to test the digital ruble in action. Everyone could open a digital demo wallet in the mobile application of the "almost real" Finoland Bank and carry out various operations: convert rubles from a non-cash account, transfer to other participants, replenish the wallet and, of course, pay for purchases.
It turned out to be easy to earn money in Finoland: rubles were accrued for completing simple competitive tasks, passing mini-quizzes, or even just like that, as a greeting (more on this below).

Here is a screenshot from Dmitry's wallet. Our hero purchased a real T-shirt, a notebook and a thermo cup from PSB on the demo of digital demorubles.

%D1%84%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B8%D1%8122_4.jpg

The real, not "demo" digital ruble will appear in 2023. And already at the forum, VTB Bank presented a prototype of a service for opening and replenishing a digital wallet, as well as transfers of digital rubles between individuals in the VTB Online mobile application.

2. FACE ID
Face Id technology (face identification) is a common thing for Finoland and comes across at every step. Even at the entrance, visitors were "recognized" by biometrics and at the same time their body temperature was determined.
At the Atronic biometric terminal, having passed the Face Id, it was possible to "just like that" replenish the demo wallet for 100 digital rubles. Such terminals stood at each stand, so our hero's wallet was constantly replenished.

%D1%84%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B8%D1%8122_5.jpg

At the Finoland transport hub, with the help of biometric technologies, it was possible to "pass" passport control and "board" the plane.
%D1%84%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B8%D1%8122_6.jpg

Special attention deserves the stand of the Moscow Credit Bank. At the counter with the speaking name "for a person", the age and mood of the visitor were determined with biometric data. Dmitry was "counted" almost perfectly - they added only one year.

[About Dmitry's mood - the inscription on the check on the right of the photo reads "calmness - only calmness"]

6. FinTaxi.
What is a city without a taxi? So Finoland has a virtual "taxi of the future". Dima, of course, tried himself as a racing taxi driver and earned the coveted digital rubles.

8. SBP [quick payment system] in the subway.
After taking a taxi and walking around Finoland on foot, Dmitry also decided to "ride" in the subway, where he encountered a new service. VTB, together with the Moscow Metro, demonstrated payment for a trip using a QR code through the SBP. To do this, you need to generate a QR code in the metro mobile application and attach the phone to the turnstile.

Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow, gave a deeper insight into the preferred developments of the responsible factors in his personal website, in 2021.
Moscow is the best city on Earth / Together we will overcome the COVID-19 pandemic
Healthcare / The main thing in the fight against the pandemic is the opportunity to receive personalized medical care at any time
Services for residents and businesses / Technologies on the guard of health
Digital passes
In 2020, we have reduced the number of social contacts thanks to the service of registration and verification of digital passes for moving around the city by transport. Citizens could continue to work, go to the country and to the doctor, without increasing the rate of spread of COVID-19
QR codes (checkins)
A service for access to bars and other institutions that allows you to promptly notify all visitors that COVID-19 was detected in one of them. 4700 organizations received QR codes, 5.4 million checks were made by residents

In unique facts and projects / International recognition of the fight against COVID-19
Four projects of the Moscow Government became the best at the Digital Peaks competition:
- Technopolis "Moscow" was recognized as the best in six categories of the Global FreeZones of the Year rating [including "Fighting the pandemic"]
- The Social Monitoring service became an Oscar winner among innovations
- Moscow has entered the top three of the innovation rating in the fight against COVID-19

Smart City Moscow. Certification according to the international ISO standard
May 28, 2021
Moscow received certificates of compliance with international standards ISO 37120 [expired 30April 2022] "Sustainable community development - indicators of urban services and quality of life" and ISO 37122 "Sustainable cities and communities – indicators for smart cities".
The ISO 37122 standard was approved quite recently, and Moscow has successfully passed certification according to it among the top 10 cities in the world.

ISO-37120.jpg

Experts evaluated 80 indicators in the main sectors of the urban economy, reflecting the effectiveness of the introduction of "smart" technologies to improve the quality of life of citizens.
Why is this important?
Because a smart city is not about the future, but about today. We talked about this at the Smart Cities International Forum, which was held in Moscow at the end of May.
And, of course, obtaining an ISO certificate is not an end in itself, but simply an ongoing assessment of the work of the city authorities on the implementation of SmartCity technologies, which does not stop there.
We will continue to create smart services for Muscovites to make our city even better, safer and more comfortable to live in
