The Problem: Identification Fraud
Identification fraud has been a problem for authorities for a very long time and in modern times the internet has made things easier for people to fall victim to this crime. The internet has made it easy in the sense that someone can steal your identity from a different continent and spend your money or commit crimes under your identity in just a matter of minutes.
Reports show that close to 15 million people fell victim to identity fraud in the year 2018. The reason is that criminals tend to test different technologies first and find ways to hack a person’s credentials and do harm.
The Advantages of Facial Recognition
Facial recognition can also be very convenient. As mentioned at the start, it could lessen the time in airports and different offices but most importantly is the application in the healthcare field.
Emergency response systems could gather information about you if you were unconscious or had no one around to recognise you. High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) that have a tendency of travelling to far away destinations, countries that speak different languages, may fall ill and paramedics would have your medical records in their databank.
This can all be accomplished of course with the help of Blockchain technology which is a technology to be reckoned with. Blockchain may improve and help against the fight against identity fraud and this is why HNWI invest in technologies like facial recognition. As time progresses, HNWI are trusting more and more this tech and will be implemented for usage in most, if not all aspects of their lives.
HNWI Investing in Facial Recognition
Trust has been built over a number of years when it comes to facial recognition and HNWI are investing in it more and more. It’s a trend among these individuals as companies develop and sell this tech. Investment also involves the time to do their due diligence and educate themselves further and discover new areas of where they can use this future technology.
It’s obvious that the use of facial recognition in HNWI’s lives and ultimately their entire world is highly beneficial to them, as it detects and prevents crime done to them personally, family or their company. These individuals look for accurate, smart improvements in their lives in order to protect all their assets and of course their legacy.
