Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

Executives from biometrics companies will be among the speakers at KNOW Conference, including Blink Identity Co-founder and CEO Mary Haskett and EyeLock CEO Jeff Carter.

The KNOW Conference is taking place from March 24 to 27 in Las Vegas, and will feature panel discussions, demonstrations, and awards related to the “Future of Trust.”

Haskett will participate in a panel discussion on “How to Trust a Stranger: Building for Trust in Digital and Physical Interactions.” She will share insights from more than a decade spent designing, developing, and deploying large-scale biometric identification systems internationally for the Department of Defense, including the National Afghanistan biometric database system. Haskett has extensive experience in identity in motion technology, and Blink Identity sensors have been deployed for operational testing at U.S. military bases around the world, according to the announcement.

Blink Identity raised $1.5 million in a seed funding round last year.

Carter will take the “nay” side in the “Face/Off Debate: Should Facial Recognition be the Future of Biometrics?” Two teams of experts will argue whether consumer-facing tools for unlocking smartphones and paying for meals with a smile should be the way of the future, or if their convenience is outweighed by the need for privacy guarantees and reduced bias. Carter holds several patents related to information banking and the monetization of personal data to give individuals privacy, control, and empowerment.

“KNOW 2019 Vegas is the premier identity, trust and data economy event in the world, bringing together the latest innovations and leading-edge technology, and assembling today’s visionaries to explore the hottest topics influencing the industry. I am thrilled to join the debate stage with Brenda Leong, Senior Counsel and Director of Strategy at the Future of Privacy Forum,” Carter says.

EyeLock was recently added to the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program to provide enterprises with access control powered by iris biometrics.
