[N] Hikvision marketed ML surveillance camera that automatically identifies Uyghurs, on its China website

News Article: https://ipvm.com/reports/hikvision-uyghur

h/t James Vincent who regularly reports about ML in The Verge.

The article contains a marketing image from Hikvision, the world’s largest security camera company, that speaks volumes about the brutal simplicity of the techno-surveillance state.

The product feature is simple: Han ✅, Uyghur ❌

Hikvision is a regular sponsor of top ML conferences such as CVPR and ICCV, and have reportedly recruited research interns for their US-based research lab using job posting in ECCV. They have recently been added to a US government blacklist, among other companies such as Shenzhen-based Dahua, Beijing-based Megvii (Face++) and Hong Kong-based Sensetime over human rights violation.

Should research conferences continue to allow these companies to sponsor booths at the events that can be used for recruiting?
