Canon has rolled out new AI cameras that use "smile recognition" technology to ensure that only happy employees are allowed into its offices.
The China-based Canon subsidiary Canon Information Technology introduced an "intelligent IT solution" for corporate offices that includes five different functional modules, one of which is "smiley face access control".
In addition, based on the corporate culture of 'moving and always being', Canon has always advocated the concepts of 'laughing' and 'big health,' and hopes to bring happiness and health to everyone in the post-epidemic era.
Like most outfits that have swallowed this management bullshit, Canon is actually proud of itself and wrote in a press release that the "intelligent IT solution, a new experience of smile recognition is specially incorporated. It is hoped that smiles can let everyone relax and get healthy, so as to create a more pleasant working atmosphere and improve efficiency".
