John Schneider

Senior Director Technology, Qualcomm, USA

Future ID Session Chair Introduction



Dr John K. Schneider graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1990 with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, where he pioneered the use of high-frequency ultrasound as a superior method for live-scan fingerprint identification. He received over 110 patents in this field and has authored several papers and text books related to biometrics and fingerprint identification. In August, 2012, Dr Schneider’s sensor technology received FBI certification, with this new sensor having the distinction of being the first and only non-optical 4-finger fingerprint sensor technology to receive such certification in the history of the industry.

In 2013, he was elevated to Biometric Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and

Electronic Engineers for his pioneering and leadership work in the field of ultrasonic imaging.

In 2014 he was recognized as a Distinguished Alumni for the University of

Buffalo, and awarded the Small Business Innovative Research Hall of Fame award for lifetime achievement which he received at the White House.

In 1989, he founded Ultra-Scan Corporation, and for the next 24 years, served as its President and Chief Technology Officer deploying biometric solutions into a variety of applications ranging from health care, physical and logical security, financial services and border crossing applications. Ultra-Scan was acquired by Qualcomm in February of 2013.
