BIOMETRICS

May 12, 2016

THIS IS NOT A PAID ADVERTISEMENT!! …
However … we did discover this remarkable “commercial” about two or three years ago and featured it at that time. In case you have not seen this, I present it here and across my network once again. It bears serious consideration. It’s Uniqul … the first facial recognition payment system. Pay with your face. No cash needed. Other payment systems are catching on — like PayPal. Listen closely to the narrative. Amazing!

BIOMETRICS GAINING GROUND


What are “Biometrics”?

“Biometric identifiers are the distinctive, measurable characteristics used to label and describe individuals. Biometric identifiers are often categorized as physiological versus behavioral characteristics. Physiological characteristics are related to the shape of the body. Examples include, but are not limited to fingerprint, palm veins, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retina and odor/scent.” — Wikipedia

Through advancements in biometric technology — such as iris scanning, facial recognition, fingerprint scanning, voice recognition, and more — our bodies are betraying our anonymity. Through the added connections with data mining, embedded IoT (Internet of Things), convergence marketing, and the like, it’s little wonder that such pervasively invasive technology is leaving us precious few places to be alone for that private cup of coffee.


Is that really you? Biometrics says yes or no

“On average, a person can remember three or four different passwords. So we start using the same passwords. If you can find out someone’s password, you get access to their whole life. With biometrics, a smartphone can be 100 percent certain that it’s you using it.” — INC.
