Planet Biometrics: Weary eyes and fictitious faces
Biometric technology is already revolutionising both physical and cyber-security in the UK. While the latest breakthroughs are impressive, we’re only just touching the tip of the iceberg. Regardless of which method we’re using – whether it is fingerprint, facial, retinal or voice recognition solutions – there is no escaping the fact that biometric developments have been incorporated into our everyday lives. From passing through airport security checkpoints and passport control to accessing systems or our place of work; we are increasingly using our physical identity as a means of authentication, negating the need to remember complicated codes and passwords.
