The Future of Identity Authentication Is In Your Eye
NEW YORK, June, 29 2012 /PRNewswire/ — On May 11, 2012, a community of luminaries passionate about technology, entertainment and design, convened in New York City to participate in TEDxEast. Jeff Carter, Chief Strategy Officer of EyeLock Corp., gave a presentation to a packed house about rethinking how we authenticate ourselves and protect our identities in a world where the nature of identity is constantly changing. His talk – grounded in real technology – imagines a world where your eyes verify your identity across all aspects of your physical and digital life, from authenticating banking transactions and airport security, to digital networks and retail transactions.
Now, TEDxEast has made this inspired discussion about the future of identity available for everyone to view online at: http://bit.ly/CarterTEDx. The presentation focuses on the human iris and its unsurpassed capacity to protect people in a world where the physical and digital are so closely intertwined. Jeff Carter unveils the not-so-distant technological realities that make securely verifying one’s identity a blink away.
“Presenting at TEDxEast was truly the experience of a lifetime. In nine minutes, I was able to discuss how the very concept of our identities, and how we interact with one another on a daily basis, is on the cusp of a major change,” said Carter. “I truly believe iris technology is the answer to protecting a person’s privacy while assuring and asserting one’s identity with complete certainty. I hope watching this video will be able to give viewers a glimpse into a future that is not so far off.”
