...To provide better and more thorough control over the population, and to try to prevent everything from protests to terror attacks, China's government has installed as many as 130 million security cameras around the country, with 800,000 in Beijing alone. Facial recognition software is being installed so that the movements of any citizen can be tracked automatically by computer systems. China is calling this the "Skynet" program; Skynet was the name of the computer system in Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator movies that became self-aware and decided to protect itself by killing all the humans....

What's the worst that could happen?

Any speculation that unmanned drones might come next?  It seems to be that using unmanned drones to do surveillance of protests and other real-time events would be much more useful than staticly positioned cameras.
