Aware is one of the sponsors of the Disruptive Innovation track at this week’s MWC Los Angeles event. The conference kicks off today and will run until October 28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
As a sponsor, Aware will be highlighting potential applications of biometric and digital identity technology in the mobile industry. For example, mobile operators can use biometrics to link a user to a SIM card, or to make it easier for people to log into their devices and applications. The company will argue that biometric technologies can deliver a better user experience while still ensuring a high level of security.
Aware will be offering demonstrations of its own Knomi platform at booth 1735 throughout the event. Knomi offers support for both face and voice recognition, and can be used for mobile onboarding and ongoing authentication. In the meantime, Aware Sales and Marketing VP Chris Koeneman will discuss the ways in which biometrics can improve customer interactions as a member of a “Disruptions in Data” panel on October 26.
“Mobile World Congress promotes the importance of mobile technologies in today’s digital world, and we are excited to demonstrate the vital role biometrics should play at this year’s event,” said Aware CCO Rob Mungovan. “With widespread global adoption of wireless digital transactions, it’s more critical than ever that people have a way to protect their identities and assets without sacrificing convenience.”
Aware noted that people have become more comfortable with digital technologies in the past few years, and that businesses will consequently need to adapt to meet the expectations of a more savvy audience. All MWCLA guests will need to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the event. Aware, meanwhile, has previously argued that vaccine passports should be linked to people’s biometric credentials.
