Physical World Connection Used To Nab Colombia Drug Kingpin
Speech, retinal scans, DNA (hair,blood,saliva) along with fingerprints, are considered human physical world hyperlinks (PWH).
Scan the PWH, and make a match with an online database.
A reputed leader of Colombia's biggest drug cartel, his features radically altered by plastic surgery, was identified by Brazilian and American anti-drug agents using advanced voice recognition technology, the suspect's lawyer said Friday.
The recording was compared in the United States to other tapes of Abadia's voice, leading to a match that allowed Brazilian police to identify him so he could be arrested, Alambert told The Associated Press.
