The pandemic once again recalled the importance of developing all non-contact. It is much safer to pay with an NFC chip in a smartphone instead of cards or cash, and if the smartphone also supports face recognition instead of entering a PIN code or fingerprint, it’s generally good. All this applies not only to payment for services and goods, but also to other areas of life, especially those that are tied to identity verification.

ITKarma picture

And there is where to turn around solutions based on biometrics. Recognition of voice, face, retina, non-contact analysis of fingerprints and vein pattern, analysis of gait features - all this gradually becomes a familiar present, and to some extent necessary technology. The contactless biometric technology segment in 2019 has already been estimated by experts at almost $ 6.2 billion, and by 2027 an increase of 20.3% is projected annually.

Our forum #btechday will bring together leading biometric technology developers and world experts - there will be speakers from ID R & amp; D, VisionLabs, NtechLab, RT Labs, BIOSMART, BI Solutions, MDG group of companies, Russian Biometric Society and more. There will be two blocks - plenary, with discussions of current market challenges, and technological, directly about solutions and their implementation. We will discuss the experience of different countries and companies, cases of using ML and computer vision.

Participation is free, the event program is under the cut.
