A recent passenger trends survey revealed that 57% of air travel passengers (n=7,031) are ready for #biometrics. Acuity analysis indicates ~1 billion biometric smartphones are actively in use globally, representing 40% of the global smartphone market. With biometrics already in our personal and business lives – #fingerprints (phones), #voice (Siri, Cortana, Echo) and #facialrecognition (face), password/pin/card authentication services are slowly making way for #BioAaaS.
As with many things in #bigdata, convenience and innovation might come at the cost of security, privacy and ethics. Will passengers, consumers warm to biometric tech and accompanying cognitive services? #SeamlessTraveller
