Not only did he appear dressed like the Bond villain, he's also pushing the same totalitarian tech for mass-surveillance as Blofeld does in Spectre.
Klaus Schwab arrived at the G20 summit by private jet and was whisked to the venue in a bulletproof limo, complete with blacked-out windows and armed private security. He was treated by the Indonesian government to a red carpet, military parade, and a troop of dancing girls as if he were a head of state.
Schwab will be talking to G20 leaders about the 'need' to have the facial recognition software his organisation has developed in partnership with Infosys. This, Schwab maintains, is what all countries need to 'keep the people safe'.
Local outlets claim that the national police will use the same technology in the summit’s own security systems. The facial recognition technology has been integrated with the networks of the Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim) and the Directorate General of Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil). “This collaboration with the Dukcapil of the Home Affairs Ministry is very helpful for our work. We can quickly identify the perpetrators and victims as well as prevent crime since we can quickly recognize them,” Bareskrim said.
Thousands of police, who will be wearing body cameras, have been deployed for the event. The cameras have the real time facial recognition software installed and will work in conjunction with over 1,700 static CCTV cameras in Nusa Dua, the area in Bali where the summit is happening. The instillation of the tech was said to be a stipulation of Schwab who wants to use the real-time facial recognition tech as a demonstration for the world leaders attending.
Klaus Schwab's speech was the usual mix of vague references to the Great Reset and veiled threats for non-compliance, all delivered in the guttural German accent that would not have been out of place in the beer halls of 1930s Munich.
