University of Kent takes the PIDaaS project to the USA

PIDaaS recently attended the International Biometric Performance Testing Conference 2016 in Gaithersburg, Maryland, an event designed to identify new and effective performance metrics and best practices for biometric technology. The focus this year was on refining the concept of biometric performance, reflecting on what’s changed since biometrics hit the mainstream, and outlining what will be needed in the future.

The conference was hosted by NIST, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, whose mission is to promote innovation and industrial competitiveness in the US by advancing measurement science, standards and technology in economically efficient and secure ways.

University of Kent spoke at the event, showing how PIDaaS exploits traditional biometric technologies and platforms for identity management to create an innovative mobile service based on voice and face biometric and template protection schemes, and how they are doing the evaluation experimentation within the project.
