Now the person can be identified on an eye raduzhka from a long distance
Biometric technologies endure lifting. Electronic records with attributes, such as fingerprints or a pattern of an iris of the eye of an eye, allow quickly and with high precision to identify the personality. The last achievements in this area allow to scan a raduzhka from distance of 12 meters. Researchers from Carnegie-Mellon’s University in the USA showed possibility of use of the technology for recognition of drivers through lateral mirrors of the car.
Researchers hope that the technology developed by them will help with the solution of safety issues. Biometric systems of identification allow people to refuse use of electronic keys or long passwords.
However the new technology has a number of the serious problems connected with collecting, processing and storage of sensitive personal information. According to the research Daily Mail, despite convenience of identification of distant action, people are not ready to accept yet this innovation, preferring physical interaction with the biometric device.
Other obstacle is that adaptation to technologies of video surveillance and safety occurs slowly as they are integrated into an everyday life of society gradually. Hasty introduction of technologies in life can lead to that them becomes much more that quantity which is ready to accept society.
For example, realization of biometric technologies in smartphones and other daily devices, such as computers or cars, will allow people to see, as far as they are useful and simple in use. The user gets used to technologies and ceases to be afraid of them.
After that the person can be acquainted with more invasive technologies, such as system of identification of the personality at distance. The technology can be widely used in big shopping centers and public institutions. However before it is required to provide protection of personal information and confidential information.
The fact of that scanners of an iris of the eye of an eye of distant action can independently read out information, sometimes even without the knowledge of her owner, causes legal questions.
The person should be informed, where, when who for what purpose made collecting sensitive information. Other question is safety of storage of such data.
Besides, researchers still should increase accuracy and a faultlessness of process of remote identification of the personality. Unfortunately, the technology is not perfect and she can be deceived.
