The password system is in poor shape. Tens of online accounts ask us to create passwords, preferably unique, and not written down - demanding an admirable feat of memory for capitalisations and non alphanumeric characters.

What if your phone could recognise you? All the major biometrics of a person can now be captured on a smartphone without any additional hardware, so biometric verification can be done by anyone, anywhere with minimal cost.

This talk will describe these new technologies and the influence they could have on our industries.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
