What are some tactics etc to deal with such a state? Assuming you get a low ranking, how would you operate?

this shit would turn life into real-time face book. new forms of social anxiety would arise where people would not only obsessively check their score, but modify their behavior in an openly false way to get and keep a good score.

you would have elders fail to assimilate into this new system and end up getting unpersoned for cursing or swatting a drone away or something minute. not to mention that thoughtcrime and pre-crime would become a real thing.

Harder than it sounds - if I was in charge of such system, I'd spend a lot of rescources on making it as obscure as possible.

But even if designers don't have it as explicit goal, such things tend to end up anti-inductive by themselves.

Warpaint, reflectacles, and reflective clothing? Never going to work. They look like shit, and of the only half the population that wears make-up, they've spent centuries making sure it's perfectly symmetrical, and that isn't going to change to combat some niche concern like fighting facial recognition. Not to mention by looking so unusual you're making yourself stick out.

Delete all of your posts on social media, then delete the accounts themselves. Never use your real name. If you need to use a site that requires a username, make it unique, tied to a unique email address, and dump them often. Likes, retweets and upvotes are not real. You do not need a reputation.

Only pay for things in brouzouf whenever possible. Do not use loyalty cards for any company. Do not use companies that can track your purchases or use. Do not use Amazon, Netflix, Uber, Just Eat etc. Go to the grocery or hardware store, pirate your media, call a taxi or a restaurant directly.

Do you really need a smartphone? You're not going to be using Twitter or Facebook, you're not going to be booking a ride home or ordering your dinner through an app. Use the cheapest dumbphone you can, take the battery out when you don't immediately need to use it. Don't have a contract sim if you can avoid it. Need to entertain yourself? Read a book, get a cheap MP3 player, buy a newspaper and educate yourself on what's happening in your country, even if it is through a biased lens.

And if you really care, get militant. Fight those who seek to oppress you.



there are no solutions for beating the surveillance state here, only cowing to it. facial recog is one of the main tools they have so skirting that would be a major step actually.

You are not in a position to recommend anyone 'should' do anything when you ask for explanations on the subject in idealistic terms such as 'complete anonymity'.


Switching up your routine might also help a little. At the very least, it makes you less predictable.

i see reading comprehension is not your strong suit. if you are not blocking facial recognition, which like i said is the main way they ARE profiling you, then you are not "denying the enemy the ability to profile you."



the solution is literally a facemask and sunglasses.



so this is for blocking facial recognition?

Is there any particular kind that you have to use?

IMPORTANT NEWS: Scientists have figured out how the Chinese will look after a couple of generations! This photo shocked millions of people …



I sit here watching this social credit system be tested with optimistic minders saying the system will be in place, fully by 2020.

This tells me they are confident with the amount of data already collected over the years, enough so to accurately identify individuals and associate every waking moment and action. I can only wonder how much data they've collected on tourists, whether or not they to have a score in terms of their favor with the state - or if they should be quarantined to the airport during their stay/lay-over if you fail to consent on opting-in – or worse, picked up by state authorities for questioning and political detainment. As with recent disappearance of the chief interpol cop. https://www.news.com.au/world/europe/interpol-president-meng-hongwei-missing-after-trip-to-china/news-story/d1fb4add058fe6e1897ea56a16ffd32f

I do not see how any person who would rather maintain their autonomy and personal ownership would dare opt-in to such a system. Alas, critics expousing their disfavor on fedbook and tawtter are no better - as they too have been played, and already opted in to the same exact surveillance state.

Simply, there is no opting out. Most people have taken this fatalistic attitude. If you cannot be controlled, then you will be confined or removed. Perhaps most people are okay with this level of control upon their lives, or perhaps they are completely ignorant and wouldn't exactly consent if they understood the context of exactly how they are being fucked.

What about the rest of us who do know and understand this? What about the rest of us who would rather live and express without fear of minders? Or how politically correct it is? or the sensitivities of diametrically opposed interests? Those who dare speak inconvenient truths?

I cannot say I have an optimistic outlook on the next decade. Let's leave it at that.





I actually want to wear something like that because of all the faggots with smartphones taking pics of everything and everybody. Last thing I need is becoming a normie meme.


How long until the algos are able to reverse this?



>>Those, like Dandan, with top “citizen scores” get VIP treatment at hotels and airports, cheap loans and a fast track to the best universities and jobs.

There is a financial incentive for the system to be ignored. Imagine being forced to higher some inferior working who has an awesome 'social credit score'. How little negativity he spread about the government probably has little do with his effectiveness at writing android apps, etc. And may even be inversely correlated if intelligent people tend to be the dissidents. Who will pay for VIP hotel treatment ? Government ? Similiar problem with universities. They probably want to accept either top tier talent or wealthy students, and a social credit score can inhibit that.

Of course, the vast majority of that 1 Billion is fucked. It doesn't matter is your a 3x phone assembler when the company has 500 employees, and political pressure is high. Bottom of society is fucked.

Won't work consistently. You can't "fix exposure" after the photo is taken. There is information you lose which just isn't there.

Images are probably doctored up for capitalist advertising's sake, but here are two examples. One working, one not doable because #000 black pixels are all going to be the same #000 black no matter what. Enough of that shit and the glare alone will be enough to block out your face, even with auto-exposure turned off.

>ebic reddit hack unsuccessful


>someone uses face detection that doesn't use value gradient directions and you get arrested for criminal mischief

>someone notices you're wearing weird shit, points you out to the nearest cop, and you get arrested for criminal mischief

I smell polyp larping in this thread. You have to go back. You also have to learn facial recognition and facial detection are different things, and you don't necessarily have to bypass facial detection to bypass facial recognition.

Dunno why no one's suggested a surgical mask yet. Also 'beating' the system offers no financial reward, so very few people are going to do it. I still have trouble believing that a 1984-esque dystopia is sustainable, though. That kind of surveillance just stamps out all autonomy from an individual, and society in the end needs that to solve problems. In all likelihood it's gonna end in a SHTF scenario. Buy guns, then "lose" them.



Game the system to get a high score, sabotage from within. Dumb shit like LED face masks won't make any difference. The ruler of a local prefecture, on the other hand…

I thought about this for some time.


>And if you really care, get militant. Fight those who seek to oppress you.

So let's discuss that. Militant in this era could not even look like a gun toting guerilla foot soldier, this is quite a different field. The biggest threat to this system are any form of comms outside of their control - places where people can congregate in a decentralized and anonymous manner to share Intel/resources, organize logistics and execute coordinated attacks.

The crux of this system is the vast network of cameras and clear net utilities at the disposal of the state. Disabling any of this carries harsh penalty if caught… However, what opportunities can brief surveillance outages afford? Who detects outages and failures? How rapid is their response? How deep the investigation?

Any method is to be considered, a pair of bolt cutters to a more discrete worm could have the same effect.

Tampering with the tech is only addressing the symptom; suppressing it may afford movement in brief lapses.


Guns derezzed a long while ago, but you are correct on the need for individual autonomy. My heart hurts for the people struggling under this system, but they are ultimately left with the decision to remain complacent or start giving a shit. If they haven't already.

The succession of events, from Xi Jingping claiming title "PM for life term" to the rapid roll out of this tech tells me they are trying to reign in control. Maybe this was always the plan from the conception of the giant CCTV network; perhaps the people do carry resent, but are suppressed from acting out.

Anyway, my .02 to my prediction this is going to implode. Grab the popcorn.

no such thing as 'security by obscurity'. there is the problem though that with blackbox solutions like artificial neural networks the creators themselves are clueless as to how the system came up with a solution.



With the current geopolitical climate between the US and China, running a Chinese guy as the nominee would be asking for another Republican victory.



>you would have elders fail to assimilate into this new system and end up getting unpersoned for cursing or swatting a drone away or something minute.

If we're talking chinese then those elders already went through the great leap and cultural revolution so they know how to behave in a totalitarianist dystopia


Buy a chinkpad, install libreboot and tails, use it only on free wifi hotspots like a library.

If you avoid going to the same places (be random) you're virtually 100% anonymous, nobody will bother unless you go full retarded and become an enemy of the state in which case they will find you in meatspace anyway


And macfaggots still say its secure and private


That episode was based off this which was a prototype att.


>no such thing as 'security by obscurity'

Actually there is, IIRC the soviets had this weird ass computer that nobody managed to hack because it was so goddamn weird (trinary instead of binary among other things) and there were no docs at all.

Tons of milspec hardware is obscure af too.
