Chinese use AI to test party loyalty

If they used it in Italy it would explode 

Chinese researchers claim to have developed artificial intelligence they say can read the minds of Communist Party members and make them more receptive to “thought education”.

Hefei Comprehensive National Science Centre said the system could read facial expressions and brain waves, analysing how attentive a member was to “thought and political education” so as to “further solidify their confidence and determination to be grateful to the party, listen to the party and follow the party”.

The article was published on July 1 and there was a public outcry that such an AI system was too much even in a society where the state routinely compromises individual privacy. We would bet money that it was taken down by another Chinese AI system which was designed to keep citizens calm. 

Loyality to a political party is not a thing in democracy. In Italy, politicians change their parties more often than their mutande.
