October 8, 2015 -
Management and consultancy firm The Human Chain has partnered with biometrics specialist Gradiant to showcase their biometric technologies and multi-factor authentication solutions at Biometrics 2015, held in London, UK from October 13-15.
The Human Chain will be demonstrating Gradiant’s face, voice and signature recognition technologies at the conference, along with a suite of multi-factor authentication demos enabled by The Human Chain’s Digital Services Toolkit.
The toolkit — which is a service creation environment designed to create, test and pilot proof-of-concept digital services — has pioneered the use of various technologies including biometrics and NFC/contactless.
“Biometrics 2015 is set for a good turnout of stakeholders from throughout the biometrics value chain,” said Tim Jefferson, managing director of The Human Chain. “We’re expecting our booth to attract technologists, developers and architects interested in understanding the capabilities, user experience and integration opportunities of biometric technologies. Our demonstrations will also help those with a more commercial interest understand the business case for deploying biometric technologies with existing products and services.”
Gradiant is a non-profit R&D center that helps companies to increase profits and bring to market dedicated technologies, such as biometrics.
“Gradiant comes back to the Biometrics 2015 event offering its biometric technologies for mobile devices (iOS/Android),” said Daniel Ramos, international business development manager of Gradiant. “We welcome visitors to our stand, where they will be able to test our three complementary modalities: face, voice and signature recognition. We look forward to talking with them about biometric technologies, template protection, liveness detection and their current challenges in mobile authentication.”
Additionally, Gradiant’s biometrics team leader Esteban Vázquez-Fernández will discuss the security benefits and privacy concerns of biometrics in mobile devices at the event.
The presentation, ‘Enhanced security and privacy protection in mobility scenarios: A case study in face verification technologies’, will be held at 2:25 p.m. on October 15.
