"Concealed in regular safety helmets or uniform hats, these lightweight, wireless sensors constantly monitor the wearer’s brainwaves and stream the data to computers that use artificial intelligence algorithms to detect emotional spikes such as depression, anxiety or rage."

It looks like China will finally deliver on the cyberpunk dystopia we were promised...

@paulfree14 @Antanicus I doubt the technology is actually reliable, which almost makes it more dystopian!

@mayel @paulfree14 yeah, imagine being marked as "potentially dangerous" and ending up in a chinese prison but that was a malfunction... Try explaining that to the court...

@Antanicus @paulfree14 or a manager who doesn't like you for any reason, finding an excuse to get rid of you by interpreting the data against you

@mayel @paulfree14 @Antanicus the unintended consequence will probably be a black market in Fluoxetine as it becomes unacceptable to strongly emote.

@Antanicus How long until employers will require wearing something like that during interviews to go along with their "personality tests"?

@cstanhope @Antanicus
I used to work for a company that insisted on "Personality tests" for all hires. Several times I really needed skilled people, but they never had the "correct" personality type according to the people who made the ultimate hiring decisions. It was hellish stupidity, we had huge problems getting talent. Will unnecessary emotional scans be the next pointless talent barrier? Stay tuned!
