Biometrics Institute Annual Congress
October 26 – 27, 2022
The Biometrics Institute prides itself on its balanced discussions on topics on the responsible and ethical use of biometrics. The annual Congress is the key biometrics gathering not to be missed. It provides an independent platform for off-the-record discussion among the institute’s global multi-stakeholder community.
Biometric technology continues to develop at high-speed while the adoption of biometrics for all kinds of use cases constantly evolves. Standards are being worked on internationally but it seems regulation and legislation just cannot keep at pace. And confusion amongst the public and concern over biometrics increases.
As digital identity takes off in both a centralized and de-centralized modality, questions arise about the necessary procedural responses required to mitigate against biometric ID theft, fraud, deep fakes and misrepresentation.
The Congress attracts over 300 delegates including representatives from government, the user community such as retail, banking and aviation as well as biometric suppliers and academics.
