FindBiometrics is in Johannesburg, reporting live from ID4Africa 2019, where the biometrics industry is convening to help realize the future of next-generation identity technology in Africa. All week we will be bringing you live audio interviews recorded on the exhibition floor with biometrics industry experts helping transform identity services across the continent.

On Thursday, Peter O’Neill, President of FindBiometrics, spoke with Dr. Joseph Atick, Executive Chairman, ID4Africa. Their in-depth conversation starts with the origin story of ID4Africa and Africa’s special needs in regards to its invisible population. Atick talks about the dramatic growth in the ID4Africa movement over the show’s history, not only in terms of vendors exhibiting but also government participation.

The discussion concludes with a detailed picture of what’s next for the ID4Africa movement when it heads to Morocco for it’s ‘Identity 360’ theme, and how elements introduced to the organization this year will propel its “Africa first” mission statement.
