With the Covid pandemic, solutions that allow a touchless experience have become increasingly necessary. Biometrics can answer this need by providing the accuracy, speed and ease-of-use required to quickly process people accessing services, crossing borders or requesting a new document
At Thales, it is believed biometrics can help us build a future we can all trust!
During their talk, Daniel Asraf and Jean-Claude Perrin will look at different use cases centred on biometrics, and discuss the challenges of ensuring the system is attack-proof, fast and accurate, in order to protect people’s identity and citizen rights with secure sustainable and user-centric solutions. With the biometric market having undergone years of development, they will look back at what has been achieved, and explain how deep learning can help advance biometrics even further.
