US: Federal prosecutors want to use voice biometrics in court

Prosecutors want to use hi-tech evidence in trial to identify voices of terrorists (Daily Mail)

Terrorism prosecutors in Brooklyn want to use sophisticated voice recognition evidence — the same technology used to identify ISIS butcher “Jihad John” — for the first time in a federal trial in the U.S., the Daily News has learned.
