New York, NY (PRWEB) November 8, 2004 -- International Biometric Group (IBG)
extends an invitation to participate in IBG’s monthly teleconference series on
Thursday, November 11 at 1:00 pm ET (10:00 am PT). In these teleconferences, IBG
will explore current topics in the biometrics industry and address questions
-What is the latest form of lunch money that kids are bringing to school?
-What is INCITS 385?
-What role did biometrics play at the recent Republican National Convention?
This month’s teleconference series features three topics. Participants can select from any of the following three tracks, which will be broadcast live in 30-minute intervals:
In the shadow of high-profile border security biometric deployments, biometrics have begun making headway in yet another critical environment – schools. From lunch lines to physical access control, biometrics are beginning to assume integral functions in interacting with students, parents, teachers, and school staff. Tune in to hear more about the emerging roles of biometrics in the school setting as well as case studies from schools in Wisconsin, North Carolina, and West Virginia.
As the applicability of biometrics broadens into diverse markets and industries, system interoperability has become an increasingly critical issue. In conjunction with the ongoing US-VISIT Program and other government-sponsored biometric deployments, the US Department of Homeland Security recently announced the adoption of a new facial recognition standard. During this segment, learn more about key standards organizations such as INCITS and ANSI as well as the latest standards development efforts in the biometric industry.
Law enforcement has always been the oldest vertical market for biometric technologies. However, as law enforcement entities globally adopt more sophisticated and complex biometric systems, the roles of biometrics in the law enforcement sector are evolving. Hear more about the background of biometrics in law enforcement in addition to the latest biometric installments in police agencies around the world and the future trends for biometrics within this space.
