Should biometrics be used for authentication?

Stephanie Hare, Author of Technology Ethics, shares her views on biometrics being used as a form of authentication.

She spoke to us at teissLondon2020 where she suggested that because technology is evolving at such a fast pace in this field, we simply don’t know enough about the risks involved about this method of authentication.

There are plenty of questions she’d like answered – because this technology could potentially imbalance the relationship between government and citizen, putting more power into the hands of the former.

Some excellent thoughts from Stephanie, as well as her predictions for what’ll happen in this space in 2020.
