Yinchuan: The smart city where your face is your credit card

Yinchuan, China (CNN)Like most people, I'd never heard of Yinchuan before going there.
But the Chinese officials showing me around are eager to present the capital of Ningxia province, in the north of China, as a technical marvel.

It also raises some serious questions about data privacy.
