How using your mind and five senses can help you solve mysteries.
利用你的心智及五官如何能幫助你破解謎團。

  Today, police have many advanced tools to hunt down dangerous criminals. Using these methods doesn’t always work, though. In some cases, police need to go back to using their natural instincts. This is what happened recently in Jiangsu, China.
  Police officers there were looking for a gangster named Guo Bing. Guo knew they were after him, so he went into hiding. First, the police tried to use facial recognition technology to locate him. This helped them find his apartment building, but they didn’t know which room he was staying in. So, they positioned a camera near the building’s entrance. One day, the camera caught Guo returning home from the market with a big bag of vegetables and soup.
  Although they still didn’t know his room number, the video gave them an idea. Guo’s groceries suggested that he was planning to make hot pot. So, the police officers used their noses to search the building. When officers smelled spicy hot pot coming from a room on the 7th floor, they knocked on the door. Inside, they discovered Guo and arrested him.

中文翻譯&答案

當你自己的現代福爾摩斯
利用你的心智及五官如何能幫助你破解謎團。 

  現代的警察有許多用來追捕危險罪犯的先進工具。不過使用這些方法並非總是行得通。在某些情況裡,警察必須回過頭去運用自己天生的本能。這就是最近發生在中國江蘇省的例子。
  江蘇的警察當時正在搜尋一個名叫郭兵的黑幫份子。郭兵知道警察在追捕自己,所以他就藏匿了起來。警察一開始試著使用臉部辨識科技來確認他的位置。這項技術幫助他們找到郭兵的公寓大樓,但他們不知道他住在哪個房間。於是他們在該大樓的入口處放置了一臺攝影機。有一天,攝影機捕捉到郭兵拿著一大袋蔬菜及湯頭從市場返家的身影。
  雖然他們仍然不知道郭兵的房號,但錄下的影片讓他們有了一個想法。郭兵買的雜貨暗示著他可能打算煮火鍋。因此,警察用他們的鼻子搜索了該大樓。警察聞到麻辣火鍋的氣味從一間位於七樓的房間傳出時,他們便前去敲房門。他們在裡頭發現了郭兵並將他繩之以法。
