Shining a Light on the Dark Side of Biometric Technology

Oz Digital Consulting biometric Shining a Light on the Dark Side of Biometric Technology

Powerful new biometric technology—that is, technology that “identifies individuals based on their unique physical or behavioral traits”—opens up a world of convenience and possibility.

Like any new and invasive technology, however, we must fully understand the potential downsides to maximize the upside.

Enter the recent Forbes symposium, Biometric Tech: 17 Essential Details the Public Should Know, in which, among a distinguished panel of tech leaders, you will find OZ Chief Solutions Officer and Forbes Technology Council member Emmanuel Ramos, who has the following to say:

“Biometric technology is like any innovation: It can be used for good or evil. It can be used for mass surveillance, tracking individuals or groups based on their political views, ethnicity, religion, or other characteristics. It can have a chilling effect on freedom of speech and association, as individuals may be less likely to express themselves or gather in public if they feel they are under constant surveillance.”
