This past week at Mobile ID World we reported on two types of brain biometrics – both of which take advantage of wearable tech – and got into the world of voice biometrics with a particular amount of depth.
In an interview with Brett Beranek, the solutions marketing manager, enterprise division at Nuance Communications, I had a chance to talk about how voice biometrics are enabling the fulfillment of the mobile promise. Nuance Communications recently deployed its voice biometrics in a pilot program with U.S. Bank. We talked about this and how voice biometrics technology is entering a very exciting time thanks to mobility.
Sticking with the topic of voice recognition, AGNITiO launched the newest version of its voice biometric mobile app, KIVOX 4.1, this week. The application, FIDO Ready a contactless mobile strong authentication solution that can be used for a number of things including the holy grail of smartphone biometrics: mobile commerce. This newest version of AGNITiO’s app takes a strong focus on anti-spoofing technology, something that is particularly important in consumer-facing biometrics
This week we also got to take a look at a less frequently talked about mode of biometrics: wearable technology that measures brain vitals.
Personal Neuro Devices Inc. has announced that its brain measuring technology is compatible with Google Glass, opening up an entirely new world of biometric capabilities for the still to be released wearable. The futuristic sounding biometric tech has interesting applications in user interface, but the key features that immediately jump to mind involve healthcare,
The news of a brain biometric peripheral device for Google Glass gave us a great opportunity to explore another helthcare related application for grey matter measurement. While the above solution measures brain activity directly, the Blast Gauge System from BlackBox Biometrics uses an indirect method to detect brain trauma in soldiers and law enforcers.
Meanwhile at our sister site, findBIOMETRICS, the second week of Physical Access Control Month has come to a close. Mobility has a role in this too, helping break down adoption barriers thanks to biometric access card technology and innovative ideas like using smartphones as credentials.
Be sure to keep the discussion going throughout the week by following Mobile ID World on Twitter, and take a look at the newest conversation happening at findBIOMETRICS via its new blog Pop Cultural Identity Management.
