Funny how these stories go around.
Simply look at the figures:
233bn pound fund for the toilet revolution.
That is about 2.3 trillion RMB.
Compare that with the Chinese military spending which is budgeted this year for 1.04 trillion RMB.
So we have to believe that China will spend 2.3 times more on toilets that on its military. Well that would be indeed a revolution.
2.3 trillion RMB for a 100,000 toilets would be 23.3 million per toilet. Well that is a lot of money so no wander that it will be spend on face recognition technology.
For me this falls under the heading “fake news”.
