Microsoft has been working with a Chinese military-run university on researching artificial intelligence that could be used for censorship and surveillance, according to a shocking new report from Financial Times. A series of scientific studies were co-authored by researchers from Microsoft Research Asia and scientists associated with China’s National University of Defense Technology (NUDT). This apparent relationship between Microsoft and a Chinese military university is now giving rise to a tidal wave of concerns.

A number of experts have spoken out about the potential risks of U.S.-China academic relations, but there are also serious red flags about the artificial intelligence (AI) that Microsoft and the Chinese were working to develop. The research points to widespread surveillance and censorship, and people across the tech industry and from around the political spectrum are outraged over Microsoft’s role in enabling the Chinese government’s oppression of its citizens.

Microsoft and communist China research AI censorship

Microsoft and the Chinese military-run university NUDT have joined forces to work on research for AI that could be used for nefarious purposes. A trio of recently published papers have revealed their silent partnership for all the world to see.

One paper explores a new AI technique for recreating elaborate environmental maps through the surveying of human faces. Breitbart reports that experts caution such technology will have immediate use in the surveillance arena.

Samm Sacks, senior fellow at the New America think tank and China tech expert, says that these papers raise “red flags because of the nature of the technology, the author affiliations, combined with what we know about how this technology is being deployed in China right now.”

“The [Chinese] government is using these technologies to build surveillance systems and to detain minorities [in Xinjiang],” she reportedly added. And we all know what happens to people who get blacklisted in China. Threats, attacks and disappearances are all far too common among communist China’s dissidents.
