Using facial recognition for identification – even with masks

In World War II, navies disguised warships by painting them in a pattern called “dazzle,” which confused radar systems. Although it didn’t really look anything like the camouflage soldiers wore, it essentially camouflaged the ships. In 2020, something similar happened to facial recognition. It wasn’t on purpose, but facial recognition systems suddenly started having trouble […]

Why medical providers need to see an insurance card – every time

While certainly the most important reason for proper identification in medical patient registration is for the health of the patient, it’s also important to ensure that the patient is eligible for the services they are requesting and that their insurance company or other provider is agreeing to pay for the service.

The brazen theft happened in the middle of the business day, when a salesperson stepped away after letting one of the men take the car for a test drive, while the other sat in the (getaway) car. He then swiped […]

Considering a cloud-based visitor management system

“Can I help you?” There’s more than just courtesy in this question. Building receptionists and security guards don’t just greet visitors, but also perform an important gatekeeping and data gathering role. And there’s no point in gathering that information if you can’t gain access to it afterwards. That’s why the global vendor management system market […]
