This AI technology tracks employees to enforce social distancing

by MAC



As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, companies are plotting what a safe return to the office looks like. To enforce social distancing and mask wearing, AI technology that tracks employees’ locations is becoming increasingly popular. But privacy experts warn that may not be the best solution.

Look I think social distancing is important during this time but this could be used maliciously in the future which can be dangerous.

Yes, this technology is wrong and intrude on privacy. But.. I view it in another aspect as well, if people wore masks and used social distancing, this kind of tech wouldn't even be concidered. I still don't think that this is a good idea, and shouldn't be used, but maybe people start to think about it and put a mask on and keep a distance to others

Like this Lewis Maltby guy said, this is a terrible solution, and just speaking with your employees and training them to distance themselves and take all of these security measures would work just fine. Companies and employers tend to move towards a more "private-less" work environment, and that is NOT okay.

The concept is fun but do we need AI to establish if we’re wearing masks?

If this is being used to measure how long people are wearing masks then that’s also useless, it’s not likely for someone to turn up to work with a mask and then take it off during shift.

Why isn't it tracking the virus? Showme that. Showme the poison in the air. Ow. You can't. Cause it's inside off humans. Humans produce it as a side effect from the flu shot. Got it. So quarantine all recipients of the flu shot. Filter air in a buildings.

Just give me fucking covid. I’d rather take my chances with a disease with a 0.4% mortality rate than live the rest of my life with the government telling me how late I am allowed to stay out and isolating me from my fellow human.
