China’s facial recognition start-ups are attracting big investments at a time when Silicon Valley’s giants are facing a backlash over their use of the technology.中国的脸部辨识初创公司已经更有很多项目投资,而这时美国硅谷大佬们对此项技术性的用以因此以应对引擎声。In the past week, Chinese facial recognition companies, according to a pair of reports, were close to raising as much as $1.6 billion. Those investments would build on billions of dollars that investors have already put into the companies.依据二份报道,过去的一周,中国脸部辨识企业筹集了接近16亿美金(约合106亿人民币rmb)的资产。

这种项目投资将建立在投资人早就推广这种企业的数十亿美元基本上。The investments reflect facial recognition’s embrace by Beijing, which has created a better environment for companies to test the technology than in the West. And that could help China deploy advanced systems faster and more broadly than America.这种项目投资最能体现北京市对脸部辨识的接受,这为公司检测此项技术性创设了比西方国家更优的自然环境。这有可能有利于中国比英国更为慢、更为广泛地布署技术设备系统软件。SoftBank’s $100 billion Vision Fund was seeking a $1 billion stake in SenseTime, an artificial intelligence company in Beijing, Bloomberg reported last week, citing anonymous sources. SenseTime makes facial recognition software used in applications like monitoring CCTV footage and checking a consumer’s likeness to validate digital payments.据彭博新闻社(Bloomberg)上星期引证电子邮箱信息源报道,软银投资(SoftBank)的1000亿美金愿景基金(Vision Fund)已经谋取获得北京市人工智能技术企业商汤科技10亿美金(约合66亿人民币rmb)的股权。

商汤科技制做的脸部辨识手机软件可作为监控摄像机,也有查验顾客的长相相似度以检测数据交纳。On Monday, Bloomberg reported that, according to anonymous sources, the Chinese A.I. company Megvii would close a $600 million funding round “within weeks.” Alibaba and Hong Kong-based Boyu Capital are expected to contribute. Megvii is the developer of Face , the facial recognition system already used in China to grant or deny people access to buildings, or check if the driver of a Didi ride-hailing car is legitimate, among other things.彭博新闻社在周一报道称作,依据电子邮箱信息源,中国人工智能技术企业旷视科技将“在几个星期内”顺利完成一轮六亿美金的股权融资。

预估不容易有阿里巴巴网和总公司位于中国香港的博裕资本的参与。旷视科技是Face 的开发人员,它是一种人脸识别系统软件,在中国早就被用于允许或拒不接受大家转到房屋建筑,或是审查滴滴打车手机微信驾驶员情况这些。SenseTime has already raised over $1.6 billion in funding since it was founded in 2014, according to data from S P Global Market Intelligence, and as recently as May was valued at about $4.5 billion. Investors included Alibaba and Bank of China as well as the American firms Qualcomm, Silver Lake, Tiger Global Management and Fidelity International.依据标准普尔全世界销售市场财智(SP Global Market Intelligence)的数据信息,自二零一四年宣布创立至今,商汤科技早就筹集了高达16亿美金(约合106亿人民币rmb)的资产,在五月得到 了45亿美金(约合300亿元rmb)的公司估值。投资人还包含阿里巴巴网和中国金融机构,及其美企高通芯片(Qualcomm)、银湖资产(Silver Lake)、老虎狮子寰球(Tiger Global Management)和富达国际(Fidelity International)。

Megvii’s previous funding round raised $460 million from Chinese companies like Foxconn and Ant Financial, as well as several domestic investment funds. It also received money from the Moscow-based Russian Direct Investment Fund and South Korea’s SK Group.旷视科技的上一轮股权融资由郑州富士康和蚂蚁金融等中国企业及其几个中国基金投资筹集了4.六亿美金(约合31亿人民币rmb)。它还得到 了总公司设于巴黎的乌克兰必需基金投资(Russian Direct Investment Fund)和日本SK集团公司的项目投资。The facial recognition systems being built by SenseTime and Megvii use artificial intelligence to discern individuals from one another in images or video, by studying libraries of existing content. It is one of the more established machine learning techniques, which means that it has found some practical application in consumer products — such as Apple’s Face ID, which allows a user to unlock his or her iPhone by looking at it, or Facebook’s tools, which can recognize users in uploaded images.商汤科技和旷视科技已经打造的人脸识别系统软件根据科学研究目前內容库,利用人工智能技术来辨识图象或视頻中的个人。

它是一种更为成熟的深度学习技术性,这意味著它早就在消費商品中找寻了一些具体的运用于方法——例如iPhone的Face ID,它允许客户看著iPhone将其副本,或是能够在上传图象中辨识客户的Facebook专用工具。Such software has proved controversial because of the privacy issues that it raises. Law enforcement’s use of it to identify criminals or track citizens, in particular, has drawn pushback.事实上,这类手机软件不容易带来异议,因为它造成了隐私保护难题。

稽查人员单位利用信息科技辨识犯罪分子或追踪中国公民的做法尤其是在遭了杯葛。But even if its citizens have such concerns, China’s government wants to use facial recognition to create a vast national surveillance system. And it has created an environment to foster its development.但即便中国中国公民有那样的焦虑,中国政府部门也期待利用脸部辨识来建立一个丰厚的我国视频监控系统。因此它创设了一个提高其发展趋势的自然环境。The country’s push to become a technological powerhouse has created a wave of promising A.I. start-ups. Its desire to track its citizens has also meant that many of them have focused specifically on image recognition. And there are close ties between many of these start-ups and the government, which allows companies to apply their software to huge state data sets. The chief executive of SenseTime, which has contracts with the Police Department in Chongqing and China Mobile, told The Financial Times in January that the company had “processed 500 million identities for facial recognition. U.S. companies can’t test on so many customers.”某国沦落技术性大国的期待,早就创设了一批有市场前景的人工智能技术初创公司。


商汤科技的CEO在1月份对他说《金融时报》(The Financial Times),该企业早就“处理了五亿个脸部辨识真实身份。美企没法对这么多顾客进行检测,”这个企业早就与重庆公安局和中国挪动签署了合同。Similar arrangements have existed in the United States. But American technology companies have recently run into resistance when working with government agencies.美国也是有类似的决策。

但美国的科技有限公司近期在与政府部门协作时遇到了摩擦阻力。Amazon endured heavy lobbying from shareholders, the American Civil Liberties Union and staff about the use of its Rekognition software by police to identify people. Microsoft, too, has suffered blowback over a project to help develop A.I. for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. And Google ultimately decided not to renew a contract with the Pentagon that called for using image recognition to improve the performance of drone operations.amazon(Amazon)遭受了公司股东、美国中国公民自由联盟(American Civil Liberties Union)和工作员的全力说动,防碍该企业允许警察用于其Rekognition手机软件来辨识真实身份。微软公司(Microsoft)的一个项目也遭受了反击,该项目目地帮助美国香港移民与中国海关城管局(Immigration and Customs Enforcement)产品研发人工智能技术专用工具。

Google(Google)最终规定不与五角大楼续签合同,后面一种期待用于图像识别技术来改良无人飞机的行動。In the wake of those criticisms, Microsoft has actually called on Congress to regulate the use of facial recognition technology.实际上,在遭这种批判以后,微软公司早就督促美国国会管控脸部辨识技术性的用于。

The nature of A.I. means that software systems can be improved by crunching through larger and larger data sets that can be provided by the government — from things like CCTV footage, driving license images, and more. China’s start-ups, then, are enjoying the benefits of improving their technology inside projects that America’s tech giants might be lobbying their own way out of.人工智能技术的特性规定了系统软件能够根据处理政府部门——从数字电视视頻、驾驶证照片这些来源于——获得的更为大的数据而求改良。因而,当美国的互联网巨头有可能因此认为了分裂这类项目而四处劝谏的另外,我国的初创公司因此以享受着在这种项目中改良技术性的好处。
