Video: New Workplace Monitoring Tool Issues An Alert When Anyone Is Less Than Six Feet Apart

When historians write the book on the COVID-19 pandemic, what we’ve lived through so far will probably take up only the first third or so. The bulk of the story will be what happens next.

The world will change a lot and for some reason, our best guess is that the Bill Of Rights will be erased.

Our basic human rights are being destroyed every day and the majority of the American people don’t see this as a threat to our Country and our Constitution.

New technologies are being created to prevent people from getting closer during their work hours and it seems that this is just the beginning

From MIT Technology Review:


Andrew Ng’s startup Landing AI has created a new workplace monitoring tool that issues an alert when anyone is less than the desired distance from a colleague.

Six feet apart: On Thursday, the startup released a blog post with a new demo video showing off a new social distancing detector. On the left is a feed of people walking around on the street. On the right, a bird’s-eye diagram represents each one as a dot and turns them bright red when they move too close to someone else. The company says the tool is meant to be used in work settings like factory floors and was developed in response to the request of its customers (which include Foxconn). It also says the tool can easily be integrated into existing security camera systems, but that it is still exploring how to notify people when they break social distancing.

Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Amazon is also using similar software to monitor the distances between their warehouse staff. The tool also joins a growing suite of technologies that companies are increasingly using to surveil their workers. There are now myriad cheap off-the-shelf AI systems that firms can buy to watch every employee in a store, or listen to every customer service representative on a call. Like Landing AI’s detector, these systems flag up warnings in real-time when behaviors deviate from a certain standard. The coronavirus pandemic has only accelerated this trend.

This seems like Big Brother is watching conspiracy that turns into a reality, but maybe they can upgrade the device so it could be programmed to deliver an electric shock to violators, we can never tell what’s next.

Given the fact that most of the American stay quiet during these hard times, our future is not looking good!
