Camvi addressed biometrics on the edge at FedID
Last week at the Federal Identity Forum and Exposition (FedID 18) Camvi Technologies was invited to speak at the Law Enforcement and Biometrics session with U.S. federal executives from the DoD and the FBI.
Matt McCrann, Director of Sales and Business Development for Camvi, delivered a presentation on “Biometrics on the Edge: AI-Powered Solutions for Next Generation Biometric Systems” during the session. The speech addressed the key challenges resulting from the growing needs for real-time intelligence and analytics, and discussed how artificial intelligence and edge computing can be leveraged to accomplish more complicated biometric tasks.
“Next generation biometric systems need to be developed with three core competencies: Scalable, Adaptable and Interoperable,” explained Matt McCrann, “Using artificial intelligence as an enabler, these next generation systems will demonstrate a level of autonomy and a form of adaptiveness, which will allow users to overcome the challenges that real world scenarios present, such as poor, sub-standard biometric collection and attain their most extreme objectives, such as high performance stand-off, long-range facial recognition.”
The Palo Alto-based face recognition company reports that the presentation was well received by the federal officials and industry experts in attendance. Following the presentation, McCrann led a workshop and discussion around “AI and Deep Learning in Biometrics”.
The presentations and workshop discussions provided insights into the challenges and potential solutions related to law enforcement agencies and the use of biometrics.
