China has apparently been collecting voice samples of their citizens to make a database that can be used to identify people in calls, etc. How they managed to acquire this was not mentioned. What do you think would be the implications of this in a country already known for tight censorship?

You think some other countries are already using similar technologies, maybe US and Russia? And how likely is this to become a trend among governments?

This is one of the ways to watch over its citizen, it wont be a wonder when China would transplant every of its citizen with smart chips to record and reveal location and other physical infos.

Maybe we should ask Snowden how far America has gotten into this?  Grin

Me, I find this really disturbing that they could be listening to your every call. I've heard that in Saudi Arabia for example, they can find if you are doing anything obscene in Skype vidcalls and arrest you, which is only possible if they are actually watching you or recording those call.

Though we might say it's for security purposes, just the thought that someone is always listening, watching, is just chilling. Who knows when they'll use the littlest things against you or if some corrupt technician would sell your data? Looks like George Orwell is still right, we could still have Big Brother.

I read about some Russians doing this a few years back. They were able to narrow down a voice sample by some huge number like 1 million people (so 300 people in 300,000,000 have the same voices).

I think it is a breach of one's privacy because their government took their voice samples without the consent of the one being taken. However, if the sample were taken at voluntarily for security purposes, then I believe this will help in maintaining security and safety sacrificing one's privacy.

Do they even have privacy there? If the database was created by asking citizens to go to the nearest police station or gov't office, we would have heard of this way, way earlier.

Well, I guess that's what the Chinese have to pay for whatever their government is giving them.

If the banks are using voice recognition for personal authentification - why would not goverments do the same?
