Preserving privacy in an age of increased surveillance – a biometrics perspective
IBM SouthBank, Fleming Room,
76/78 Upper Ground,
South Bank, London
This one-day workshop will focus on privacy issues surrounding biometric technologies and applications. We will together reflect upon the many new threats and opportunities arising from the rapid increase in the channels of biometric data capture (e.g. sensors on mobile devices) and processing capabilities. The workshop will bring together various stakeholders from amongst end users, technology developers, researchers and legal experts to discuss the serious challenges that these developments present and explore together ways for addressing them.
