Russia to Install ‘Orwell’ Facial Recognition Tech in Every School

More than 43,000 Russian schools will be equipped with facial recognition cameras ominously named “Orwell”.

The state technology firm Rusnano’s Orwell platform is described as a image-recognition monitoring system that uses computer vision algorithms. It will be integrated with face recognition developed by NTechLab, a subsidiary of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s close associate Sergei Chemezov’s Rostec conglomerate.

The technology will ensure children’s safety by monitoring their movements and identifying outsiders on the premises.
