: Time to fast forward evolution – A Darwinian view on human identities & trust

  • A service-centric approach has led to an extremely fragmented, siloed and weak identity landscape;

  • The emerging technology landscape is providing an unprecedented opportunity to implement this shift.

Paul Grassi, Senior Standards and Technology Advisor, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA

: Technology in the service of health

Fewer than 10% of hospitals in the US positively identify their patients before diagnosing and treating them.
Health systems that have implemented modern identification tools, including biometrics, have greatly diminished patient misidentification.

Despite this improvement in misidentification, identification tools are often not given budgetary priority or operational attention.

This panel, which is assembled from a range of differing perspectives, will address:

  • The critical needs of the clinical workflow and how best the latest identity solutions can help address these needs;
  • Perspectives from the patient, the provider, and from the technology enablers who make this possible.

  KEYNOTE ADDRESS
 8.45 am

: KEYNOTE ADDRESS: CBP's strategic approach to reengineering Entry/Exit and transforming the travel experience

  • CBP is an innovative and forward-thinking agency that is leading biometrics at DHS and re-engineering the entry/exit process for travelers;
  • CBP is using advanced technology such as facial biometrics to confirm identity, further facilitate and secure travel, and meet the demands of increased travel to the United States;
  • CBP is partnering with key stakeholders in the air travel industry, TSA, and international partners to transform and strengthen the travel experience.

Introduced by: Tovah LaDier, Managing Director, International Biometrics + Identity Association, USA

John Wagner Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection

  Accomplishing airport transformation through biometric Entry/Exit
 9:10 am

: Special Topic: Accomplishing airport transformation through biometric Entry/Exit

Recent Presidential orders have added pressure on DHS to implement existing legislative mandates and 9-11 Commission recommendations to accomplish both biometric exit processing of foreign travelers in addition to the existing biometric entry processing of those same travelers.
 
Extant airport infrastructure in the U.S. was not initially designed with these additional requirements in mind. The U.S. isn’t building new airports, but air travel is growing about 5% a year, and expected to double by 2030 – not long from now in airport infrastructure improvement years.  Unless both security AND traveler flow can be enhanced together, the existing U.S. airport infrastructure will be insufficient to handle this increase in traveler capacity. 

While the technology exists to accomplish such improvements, unless all the key stakeholders – represented on this panel – work together with a unity of purpose, both security and passenger flow will be negatively impacted.  This panel will explore a positive vision of this unity of purpose, and highlight the roles that each stakeholder will play in realizing the vision.
