[1]. The Moscow Metro face recognition system Sfera identified more than 200 wanted persons

Moscow’s Ministry of transport reported that the subway face recognition system helps find criminals and missing persons. In July, with the help of the system, the authorities found 221 people. Most of the people identified by subway smart cameras are wanted. Face recognition technology is based on converting the passenger’s face into a biometric key: if the system detects a match with the search database during scanning, it will immediately notify the police. The data of other passengers is encrypted and 100% anonymous. Data is stored in information processing centres accessible only to law enforcement agencies. It was previously reported that Moscow Metro Line 4 launched the test of face pay system. Initially, only subway employees could experience the new payment service. During this period, they successfully passed the gate more than 1 million times. By the end of this year, Moscow Metro plans to expand this service to other lines.

[4]. Moody’s report: China is far ahead of other countries in launching the central bank’s digital currency

Recently, Moody’s investors said in a report that China has been far ahead of other countries in launching the central bank digital currency (CBDC), thanks to the widespread adoption of electronic payment by consumers, the almost “cashless” social environment and extensive mobile coverage. Li Xiujun, vice president of Moody’s and senior credit rating director, said that the wide adoption of digital RMB (e-cny) will improve the bank’s data collection capacity and expand the user base, which will help to enhance its role in the electronic payment system. In addition, banks can also benefit from the use of public payment infrastructure. The report said that although other countries are also developing digital currencies, China has many unique characteristics, which makes it one of the first countries to create and test central bank digital currencies. Data show that China leads the world in the use of digital and mobile wallets, accounting for 72% of e-commerce payments in 2020, while the shares of the United States and Europe are only 30% and 26% respectively. At present, China has almost entered a cashless society, with perfect network infrastructure and extensive mobile coverage. These advantages have become the driving factors for the application of digital RMB in China.
