20 Mar 2015 - NEW: Mobile app for identity verification
InnoValor is a company that is cooperating with the University of Twente to develop multi-use mobile techniques for identity verification by means of an app, for example. An app like this would help the business community and the government to quickly establish the identity of consumers, employees and members of the public. One of those involved in this work is University of Twente researcher Luuk Spreeuwers, whose research focuses on biometric aspects, in this case face recognition. The biggest challenge he faces is the variability of the images recorded by mobile phones. The app’s physical identity verification is cost effective and user-friendly. It is also more reliable than identity verification without equipment.
