The proliferation of technology has transformed physical spaces as the Internet of Things (IoT) makes the world increasingly connected. Technology convergence is integrating the cyber and physical spaces, achieving efficiency levels not previously possible. However, this convergence presents new challenges. The physical space is where people and ubiquitous objects reside whereas the cyber space is virtual. Putting the two together brings about cyber threats that can potentially lead to physical harm.
Advanced recognition systems deliver more than just conventional biometric functions. For starters, biometric entails unique characteristic of an individual, be it physiological or behavioural traits to verify a person’s identity. Physiological biometrics extends to the use of physical features such as a person’s face, iris, fingerprint, palm and DNA, whereas behavioural biometrics measures a person’s patterns, such as gait, voice, and handwriting.
Once written off by early adopters, facial recognition has come a long way to become a vital component in today’s technology-driven world. This white paper explores the farreaching effects of facial recognition, and how this technology revolutionises the security and commercial landscapes.
Today, across government and industry, leaders are expected to be more innovative, transform their organisations digitally, and prepare for Industry 4.0 whilst maintaining a robust governance model and minimising risk.
