Biometrics for wide range of auto applications showcased at CES 2020

According to the “Analysis of Biometrics in Passenger Cars, 2020 Edition” by Auto Research Analysts, automakers are exploring the potential of fingerprint sensors, eye scans, voice and facial recognition to provide access to the car and start its engine. Other applications include driver health and sobriety monitoring, vehicle security and personalization. The 37-page report explores the market’s main drivers, opportunities and challenges, considering the status and prospects of various modalities for auto applications, and asking if the auto industry is facing a biometrics boom. One answer to this question is suggested by the prevalence of automotive biometrics at CES 2020. New Scam Apps Take Advantage of iPhone Touch ID. Professor Says Police Bodycam Study Suffers from ‘Fatal Flaw’ - Law Blog. Amusing drunk caught on police bodycam wants footage off the net.

It is beyond dispute that body cameras provide important information about police behavior, and that of criminal suspects. Body camera footage cleared a Topeka man of assault accusations. Body camera video helped the public understand a police shooting in Olathe. Body cameras provide essential information that protects the police and the public. Yet we may never know the full story of a recent police shooting in Overland Park because that city — one of the wealthiest in the metropolitan area — doesn’t require body cameras for its officers. That should change quickly. Most agencies cite the cost associated with storage as a reason they have declined to equip officers with them. While Overland Park ducks body cameras, officers in Shawnee and Lenexa have them.

Kansas City, Kan., is in the process of buying cameras for 228 officers. In Missouri, the picture is also mixed. Samsung S8 'eye security' fooled by photo.

The iris-scanner can be used to unlock the phone simply by looking at it, which Samsung says provides "airtight security". But researchers at Chaos Computer Club had easily tricked the device with a picture of an eye, Motherboard said. Samsung told the BBC it was "aware of the issue".

Startup: Identifying Dangerous Individuals Using Biometric Face Structure - iHLS

This trend has many reasons – from refugee movement and civilian wars to rising living costs all around the world. This state, in which many people’s personal security is damaged, has called upon a new tool to handle anonymous violence, the type that has nothing to do with any organization and is, therefore, hard to foresee. Over the last for years, Faception system has been developed for these needs exactly. “We’ve developed a system that can, using complex algorithms and big data analysis, identify a human’s character based on his face structure with a high percent success rate,” explained the company’s CEO, Shai Gilboa. Biométrie dans les smartphones des particuliers : comment la loi informatique et libertés s’applique-t-elle ?

Uk.businessinsider. Self-described biohacker Jowan Osterlund, from Biohax Sweden, holds a small microchip implant, similar to those implanted into workers at the Epicenter co-working space in Stockholm, Sweden.


James Brooks/AP The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee's hand. Another "cyborg" is created. What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. Biométrie : quelques notions de base sur la technologie. Depuis plusieurs années, la biométrie se fait de plus en plus présente dans les objets et outils de notre quotidien.

Biométrie : quelques notions de base sur la technologie

Elle s’insère dans les passeports que nous emmenons avec nous pour voyager, dans les systèmes d’authentification qui nous permettent d’accéder aux fonctionnalités de notre téléphone portable, de réaliser un paiement à distance ou encore d’accéder à des locaux professionnels sécurisés. Utilisée aussi bien par des entreprises du secteur privé que dans l’exercice de la puissance publique, la Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (Cnil) garde un oeil toujours très attentif sur les garanties apportées pour les droits et libertés des individus (1). Pour bien comprendre cette technologie et ce qui la rend sensible, il est utile de revenir sur quelques notions de base de la biométrie. Définitions de la biométrie Sur son site internet (2), la Cnil propose la définition suivante : Il en ressort plusieurs éléments essentiels attachés à la biométrie, à savoir :

States start to address biometric privacy rights and protections. Biometrics in the workplace. - Data Protection Commissioner - Ireland. Employees biometrics justification. Israeli tech firm undercuts facial recognition to bolster privacy.
