FindBiometrics and Mobile ID World just returned from the latest Biometric Technology Rally, hosted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security(DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). That’s where our own Doug OGorden caught up with Arun Vemury, Senior Advisor for the Biometric and Identity Technology Center at DHS.
In this special podcast episode, Vemury discusses the goals of DHS S&T’s biometrics rallies, and the importance of understanding the reality of these technologies versus the popular fiction that we see on TV and in film. He highlights the goals and findings of the rallies pertaining to efficiency, performance, user satisfaction, privacy and bias, and lets us in on what makes the Maryland Testing Facility such an ideal venue for this event. He concludes on the topic of DHS S&Ts latest identity verification evaluation initiative: the 2023 Remote Identity Validation Technology Demonstration, otherwise known as RIVTD.
It’s a fascinating conversation about one of our industry’s most compelling programs.
