By Gov CIO Outlook | Monday, January 07, 2019

Security checks are a daunting hassle for the organization all around the world. Government and private both strive to build a security process which is capable to provide a safe city experience and at the same time is agile and accurate. Biometrics has emerged as one such solution which seems to be potent enough to obsolete traditional security checks and also trustable, agile and accurate. Fingerprints, retina scans, and facial recognition are unique for each individual, which makes it easier to recognize them uniquely and complete the security. Organizations have started to incorporate biometrics in their security system wherever possible.

Redefining User Experience

Technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning use the biometric data to identify a person and even with facial expression they are said to be capable of understanding one's mood and mindset. Such innovations have the potential to predict any anti-social activity and aid security agencies to stop them or at least cross check the individual for further inspection. Biometrics allows security agencies to identify criminals even they are disguised and ensure public safety.

Streamlining Security Workflow

Earlier investigators had to sift through a pile of images and video recording to identify or suspect the individuals near the crime scene but with technology, the process has become agile and streamlined. Facial recognition enables identification much faster and accurate than before and also, screening through huge criminal data and recognizing a criminal has become a fraction of the second task.

Proactivity at its Peak  

Biometrics integrated and AI enabled security gadgets are improvising the proactivity of law enforcement agencies. These gadgets not just identify a criminal from the database but also predict one based on his/her activities and alerts the agents allowing them to mitigate security risk. Organizations from around the globe have started to practice data sharing through web platforms permitting them to identify criminals from cross borders based on their biometrics. Such security practices and web solutions are driving the safe surrounding experience for citizens.
