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.

ID4Africa is above all about empowering undeserved people with the human right of identity, so it’s fitting that Peter O’Neill, President of FindBiometrics, spoke with Rahul Parthe, Founder and Chairman, Tech5. Their conversation starts with Parthe discussing his company’s focus on inclusion and how multimodal biometrics fit into that ideology. The conversation delves into Tech5’s storied history, including Parthe’s extensive experience in the world’s largest national ID schemes like India’s Aadhaar. The fascinating conversation concludes with a preview of what’s to come for the company, including some “futuristic products.”
