The National Engineering Laboratory has partnered with the country’s central police academy and the local police force in Xinjiang, a region where the state has confined nearly two million members of the Uyghur community, as well as other Muslim residents, to camps. In 2018, the lab’s owner, China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC), provided 16 grants worth up to US$430,000 to academics looking at crime prediction, emotion recognition and tracking people across surveillance footage.
