Breath / Haleine

Breath analysis was proposed and (virtually) spoofed a long time ago (1997) in Alien : ressurection.
L'analyse de l'haleine fut proposée dans Alien : résurrection", et aussi sec trompé avec du spray. Et voilà, quelqu'un a vérifié que ça pouvait potentiellement marcher!

Grouping according to breath donor (represented by different colors and symbols) becomes apparent. The inset displays the blind classification results upon a cross-validation (average of 500 Monte Carlo repartitions). The overall breath-mass spectrum to breath-donor recognition score was 76%.)
