This year’s Biometrics 2007 show will be witnessing a crash course on how some of the latest biometric advances are being integrated into real-life working environments -- often challenging environments. LogicaCMG (News
), one of Europe’s leading IT and business services companies, is presenting the conference.
LogicaCMG brings deep domain expertise to the delivery of business consulting, systems integration and IT and business process outsourcing solutions worldwide. With more than 40 years in the business and with over 40,000 people in 41 countries, the company has been a leader in its chosen field. The company works with government, defense, banking and retail organizations across Europe. It also has one of the largest security practices in Europe.
LogicaCMG’s exhibition stand (# 410) will showcase facial technology demonstrations and visitors to the show will be able to experience real-life, practical applications of the technology for the police force, military, retail and leisure industries. According to a company press release, Tim Best, Director of Global eIdentity Solutions at LogicaCMG, will be presenting a conference paper describing how new facial recognition technology has been successfully used in a proof-of-concept trial at a major international airport. The non-compliant suspects were successfully identified by the trial at a range of several meters using CCTV technology and biometric identification algorithms.
LogicaCMG will also be presenting Biofuse on this occasion. Biofuse is a multi-modal middleware
solution that makes use of various sources like biometric (for example a voice or a partial fingerprint) or biographical (for instance a Christian name or a number plate extract) to get information about a suspect. The data taken is then matched with multiple databases, with the results merged into a single, more accurate list of suspects.
The solution is already being adopted in Northern Europe as it can be very effective in environments that require the highest degree of matching accuracy, such as crime scenes and high security access.
