His investigation looks newsworthy, but may still lack objective evidences. It is unclear about how to reproduce his results. Therefore, we may need to investigate more about the story.
Could we find his computational scripts?
If no, could we find other evidences to support this story?
Furthermore, how strong SenseNets is linked to the authority of China is also worth investigation.
