So dystopian and authoritarian as to defy belief: China will judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior & adopt a lifelong points program that assigns personalized ratings by 2021. Via ⁦⁩ ⁦
China will use big data to score every resident by 2021. Those with “poor scores will be unable to move a step.”

It's hard to overstate how dystopian China's social credit system is.
If you think this will never happen in the west then think again. People are already being denied public platforms and bank accounts because of their political opinions.
This is terrifying to me This is totalitarianism beyond the imagination of Mr Orwell Beijing to Judge Every Resident Based on Behavior by End of 2020
I suspect, I’m in a lot of trouble.
Many seem horrified at China's plan to use surveillance to reward "good behavior with streamlined services while punishing bad actions with restrictions and penalties". Some say this should trigger "regime change". But dont we see similar moves in the US?

China moves a step closer to its dystopian social score system. As I argue in The People Vs Tech: highly efficient data driven surveillance - powered by smart machines & dumb autocrats - is the likely dystopia for us, too. Data privacy now is our defence.

Eventually, a GWAS will be done on China’s social score (see below about Beijing’s goal of having the score operational by 2020). Now imagine having a microchip implanted like some of have in Sweden but that integrates genomic, social, & economic data.
This already happened here in the US, we just didn't have the government do it. We did it to ourselves, and now we're mad at ourselves for it.
We talk often about how China's emerging social credit system is a catastrophe from a privacy and autonomy standpoint. Less discussed are questions of fairness and rule of law...
