Also, counting by humans is very slow, and the slower the count, the more chances of cheating. Counting by machines would take only a few hours, as contrasted with human counting which takes many days, and even weeks. But even with automation, there would inevitably be counting by humans—when some machines fail for a variety of reasons.
