A presentation by Anoop Dawar on June 2nd 2016 in Washington DC at the Big Data Everywhere conference.
"The Aadhaar project in India is providing a unique identifier for every resident of India - 1.2 billion residents - to make it easier to open a bank account, and mobility of the population. It also will decrease the embezzlement of government subsidies by as much as 1.3 billion dollars. Learn how the project uses NoSQL and Hadoop to create and maintain the world’s largest biometric database, which can verify a person’s identity within 200 milliseconds. The biometric database includes an iris scan, digital fingerprints, a digital photo, and then text-based data for every resident."
