Social implications of new use cases for biometrics: What are the consequences of and controls for biometrics in the real world?

Ramifications in the real world is a topic covered in our State of Biometrics Report. and was voted as a topic of high interest at the 2021 Biometrics Institute Congress.

What does the existence of biometric technology (and the potential future widespread availability thereof) mean for a world embracing digital identity?

What is certain is that biometrics have an important role to play and what we can influence is that the technology serves us humans rather than exploits us. This session will look at the following areas:

  • Widespread availability of facial recognition – what are the implications of that?
  • Mobile inclusion – what does that mean for people without mobile devices?
  • Digital surveillance – how do we manage that concern?
  • Identity recovery – what do we need to consider?

  • Brett Feldon, Head of Digital Identity Group, Biometrics Institute
  • Darren Bark, Chief Executive Officer, NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, Australia and Director, Biometrics Institute
