3 Biometric Techniques You Will Want to Use in the Future

//3 Biometric Techniques You Will Want to Use in the Future

Time to forget about what fingerprint reader and voice control and let’s believe the companies behind these biometric options. We learn to be in safe hands in the future.

Your Ears

Remember to pull back your hair and let a camera scan your ears when shopping something in the future. It must be long-term, but in fact, a lot of progress has been made when it comes to the ears in combination with biometrics.

Ears are unique. They are stable and lasting, which means they change very little over a lifetime. It’s also true when it comes to fingerprints, but less true when talking about facial recognition, says Michael Boczek, director of Descartes Biometrics, to Wired.

Japanese NEC is one of the companies that focus on technology. Sound waves are used to read ears, in a process that takes less than a second and has the accuracy of more than 99 percent, if we believe the NEC itself.

Your heartbeat

“Let my heart be me,” sang Sony Hedenbratt in the TV series of the same name in the happy seventies. Almost fifty years later, it may prove more appropriate than ever, at least if we are talking biometric logins.

Sensors of various kinds read from our hearts have seen several examples already, but in the future, we can use our heart to log in to our internet bank.

South Korea’s Korea Internet & Security Agency develop a biometric technology that combines fingerprints, heartbeats, and ECGs. According to the company, technology must be a much safer form of login that is offered today.

Your friends

This technique is probably closer than you think. Already this year, a UK supermarket became the first to let its customers pay with the help of their friends at their fingertips.

The British company Stahler invests heavily in technology through its Fingopay product – and is in the middle of discussions with several business chains around the UK.

Simon Binns, Commercial Manager at Stahler, believes that the technology makes it very easy for customers to pay.

They do not need to carry either money or cards. They do not need to remember any pin code. You only take with yourself. It is the safest form of biometry. There are no known incidents when this technique where this technology has been broken.

When you place your finger on the scanner it looks if you live, it looks for a pulse, and it looks for hemoglobin. Your friend code is secure because it is stored in a database in encrypted forms, such as binary numbers.

    Wow! The biometry promise to be a safe method of work in the future. In front of the fraud and identy theft the advance this breakthrough technology will be a solution for too many problems, in my opinion this is the best way of identifying and detect idividual in a fastest way, considering the constant changes on international regulations. At the same time it’s interesting the way our physics features are going to be recognized easyly by the innovative artificial inteligence. This is outstanding!

    Biometrics has long been put forth as the next big thing in authentication, replacing or supplementing the concept of “things that you know”—passwords, PINs, and so on—with “things that you are.” But despite lots of advances in the realm of biometric authentication, it’s clear that there’s still plenty of room for improvement. But with the many new innovative startups and the explosion of digital technology capabilities, it’s likely we will see it being used more and more over the coming years. Biometric identification has already become a mainstream security technology. With the help of biometric technology, airports and border control agencies have adopted paperless verification systems, mobile companies including Apple and Samsung implement fingerprint technology on their devices, top banks embrace biometric security systems to secure the data safety of their clients. It isn’t a matter of government or international organizations anymore. It becomes a part and parcel of our daily life, but are we sure that it won’t affect us and our family? In short, the answer is no. You may have a few concerns about this technology, but it isn’t unexpected at all. Every new modern technology including computers and mobile phone come with security concerns and risks. At the end, all of these concerns proved as baseless rumor and make our lives easier than ever before. However we just have to be careful and aware about the misuse of these technologies. Though biometric technology isn’t a new technology anymore, it is still in its growing period to make itself more convenient and efficient. If you are concerned about the security of your family members, biometrics is the best option for you.

    Technology is advancing in all sectors. Its seems the biometrics are not left behind in the digital technology world. First it was the fingerprint biometric, then the face recognition one, then the eye iris biometric scanners then these. Who could have thought that even the veins in your finger could be used in authentication. This emerging technology bring upon digital transformation to a whole new other level. This biometrics will surely put to ease peoples life. Payment methods have now been made easy. Its wonderful that with fingopay you don’t even have to carry either your money or your credit card. You just have to take yourself with you and thanks to technology, you can easily pay your bill using your finger.
