More censorship in China: they develop a helmet that reads the brain to discover if a person is watching porn

China banned as a hobby watch porn in 1949and since then, the state has tried to keep adult content censored.

That is why, now, a group of scientists from the Asian giant has developed a helmet that detects when someone is watching porn.

As reported by SCMP, quoted on TechSpot, China uses a mix of AI bots and human evaluatorscalled Jian Huang Shi, most of whom are women, to search for images on the web and decide if they contain explicit content considered illegal.

The problem is that this method is generating fatigue and leads to overexposure. These security measures do not prevent all X-rated material from escaping.

Researchers at Beijing Jiaotong University developed a way to potentially make life easier for testers: the anti-porn helmet.

Device Features

This helmet, which at first glance looks like a shower cap covered in wirescan detect spikes in human brain waves that occur when we view explicit images. Also, you can ignore brain waves caused by other activities, such as emotions, tiredness, or even random thoughts.

The researchers tested the device on 15 male volunteers between the ages of 20 and 25, where it worked every time they viewed something that could be classified as pornography.

However, there were some false positives, which were attributed to a lack of sufficient training material, as pornography is illegal in China. There is also a question as to whether it will work just as well on Jian Huang Shi, mostly women.

The idea behind the helmet is that testers can be shown a large number of images in quick succession, and the device will automatically record any that are too hot for the country, rather than testers slowly clicking through each one and decide if they are very explicit.
