The New Era of Biometrics for the Government Sector: Presented by the SIA Identity and Biometric Technology Advisory Board

Using fingerprint and facial recognition to access iPhones and other electronic devices are the most common biometric device in the public domain. Touchless biometrics will increasingly be used as a means to identify legitimate users of services. As use expands, the issue of “bias” has been addressed by the industry. As artificial intelligence-driven technologies mature, the industry will need to address additional challenges.
