Trust Stamp adds AI and ML experts, focusing on biometric technology for public health and security
Trust Stamp has added a number of experts in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis to its science team to boost biometric identity product development with a focus on public health and security, the company announced.
Leading experts joining the team are data scientists Dr. Thao Pham of the University of Paris-Est, Joe Morris, a data science and analytics expert, Luke Arpino, who maintains doctoral candidacy in Physics at the University of Sussex, and Dr. Ramprakash Puri with extensive AI and machine learning experience.
The science team will be led by Dr. Norman Poh, a renowned authority in computer vision, biometrics, and security.
“Trust Stamp is advancing development in unprecedented areas of artificial intelligence, cryptography, and data processing, and our research-oriented science team reflects the company’s core pursuit of innovation,” said Dr. Poh, in a prepared statement.
Dr. Poh is behind the company’s recent patent filing for touchless fingerprint technology, a biometric modality Trust Stamp says is less invasive facial recognition and more hygienic than contact fingerprint analysis. The technology integrates Trust Stamp’s cryptographic technology to anonymize the information and safeguard authentication. Trust Stamp claims its touchless fingerprint technology is an advanced identity solution that can successfully be rolled out for public health and individual security.
“In response to the unprecedented humanitarian, government and commercial interest in our technologies, we are growing our team with experts in every pertinent field, from sales to science,” said Trust Stamp CEO Gareth Genner, in a prepared statement. “Thanks to early investments in our Series A round by FSH Capital, Mastercard and Second Century Ventures, we are rapidly building a phenomenal team with blended skills, perspectives, and backgrounds to accelerate progress towards our ambitious goals.”
Trust Stamp is looking for parties interested in participating in Series A funding to further develop, patent and deliver its technology. Just recently, it secured an investment from Mastercard to expand on its AI-powered authentication services for developing communities, after graduating the 2018 Mastercard Start Path accelerator program.
