Session Info:


Sibos 2017 Toronto

It is a fact: social networks and the way people connect and share information have played a huge role in shaping up the 21st century. People are revealing more information about their identity through social networks creating online personas as valuable as their physical lives. But what happen when you open the door to online transactions? How do you verify identity in a new paradigm where physical identity documents are not commonly used? How can you be sure that online personas is really who they appear to be? What does identity actually means in this new era?


The SHARE Foundation’s Vladan Joler, Bioconnect’s Bianca Lopes, and Intellectual Ventures Laboratory’s Pablos Holman look into the future of identity, what it means to the industry, and how we can secure our identities from those intending to use our reputation for harm.

About BioConnect

BioConnect is a technology company with a fundamentally different approach to “identity.” It developed BioConnect ID, a translator of biometrics, to live at the core of every product offered by BioConnect to empower a safer, more efficient world by transforming the nature of authentication and identification. The company believes that without an identity that rightfully belongs to consumers, there is a gap in trust between organizations, places and people, which it’s attempting to solve. Using technology from the leading biometrics providers, BioConnect ID takes elements such as a person’s face, voice, eyes, and behaviors – any biometric type – and acts as a translator for identity so a person’s bank, payments provider, personal computer, or a favorite apps knows it’s them.
