. Each year, the country faces a shortfall of 50 billion cu m of fresh water. In the mea

In 2017, water consumption per $10,000 in GDP was 500 cu m, 66.6 perce

le, old series made by Hong Kong-based company TVB usually have yellowing images, but many viewers co
mplained that its retro ambience had vanished after the color cast was corrected, Jiang says.
“People then said our restored version looked like a camera filter has been ad

More complicated algorithms were later developed to carry out a tailored plan for each type of ser
ies, including those by TVB, Chinese mainland productions from the 1980s and Taiwan productions of the 199
0s. Some techniques in hands-on restorations were introduced later too, as Pei confesses even the best AI cannot handle every case.
