Because it already serves us in many ways, it is expected that, in the future, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be an even greater asset. In China, for example, the Communist Party is using a system to read the minds of its members.

The objective is to test their loyalty and consolidate the party spirit.




Science fiction movies tell us the opposite, but the truth is that it seems impossible to read someone's mind, although in certain contexts it can be useful to know what is going on in a certain person's mind.

Despite seeming highly invasive, the truth is that, according to the The Times, the Communist Party of China is using AI to read the minds of its members. According to the National Comprehensive Science Center in Hefei, this AI being used by the government will decipher how “receptive” they are to “thought education” by reading brain waves and their facial expressions.

The media have reported that the theory regarding the AI ​​system was released by the country itself on July 1st. Although the documents were deleted shortly thereafter, The Times was able to access them and investigate the matter.

Why does the Communist Party want to read the minds of its members?

According to an article published by the National Comprehensive Science Centre, the AI ​​system plans to “judge how well party members accept political and thought education”, as well as “provide real data so that these can be improved”.

The main objective of the AI ​​system is to "further consolidate your confidence and determination to thank the party, listen to the party and follow the party". For now, in Hefei, there are 43 Communist Party members involved in technology.

This isn't the first time China has tested mind-reading technologies. After all in 2018, the South China Morning Post confirmed that brainwave reading was being tested on workers at a factory in Hangzhou.
