Pikcio partners with BioID to deliver age verification as a service

Biometric authentication for reuse of age verification tokens

Blockchain-based data exchange company Pikcio and cloud biometrics developer BioID have announced a joint project in which BioID’s facial recognition will be used to deliver age verification as a service. This partnership aims to ensure age verification restrictions are met by adult websites, in compliance with new UK regulations.

Metallic nano-particles light up another path towards eco-friendly catalysts

Platinum clusters consisting 19 atoms perform 50 times higher catalytic activity

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology produced subnano-sized metallic particles that are very effective as catalysts for the oxidation of hydrocarbons. These catalysts can be as much as 50 times more effective than well-known Au-Pd bimetallic nanocatalysts.

ZAPINAMO Launches the World's First 'Power Boosted' Rapid EV Charging System

ZAPINAMO (pronounced ZAP-IN-A-MO), a Coventry based Electric Vehicle [EV] Charging infrastructure innovations company, has developed a patented EV Charging system utilising Battery Stored energy to 'Power Boost' a nominal Grid supply into a rapid or ultra-fast charge unit. This reduces the amount of time it takes to replenish the EV battery. Typically, a home charge unit will provide 4 miles of charge per 30 minutes into the EV battery, whereas a ZAPINAMO HUBZ unit power boosts it to 50 miles in 30 minutes from a domestic supply.

"Invisible Glass" Wins Top Prize in Create the Future Design Competition

Invention Could Change the Face of Industrial and Consumer Electronics

A team of scientists from the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory is using nanotechnology to eliminate optical reflections from glass, silicon, and plastics. "Invisible Glass" - designed to enhance solar energy-conversion efficiency, eliminate glare from smartphone and computer displays, and provide anti-fogging, water-repellant properties for car and aircraft windshields - has been awarded the grand prize of $20,000 in the 2018 "Create the Future" Design Contest, produced by Tech Briefs Media Group.

BioID® secures digital identities within Keyp identity ecosystem

BioID, the pioneer for ”Biometrics-as-a-Service”, has announced a cooperation with Munich Startup Keyp. Integration of BioID’s biometric authentication into the Keyp identity ecosystem assures a comprehensive customer journey that is secure and convenient. Face recognition with liveness detection from BioID is used device-independently without the need of special hardware like a 3D camera. Clients of the „Keyp Identity Platform-as-a-Service“ can incorporate biometric authentication for their processes simply by means of drag-and-drop.

New computer system recognizes a person's personality by analyzing eye movements

People recognize gestures and interpret glances very quickly and almost automatically. Computers and robots cannot do this. That is why scientists around the world are working on ways to make human-computer collaboration more social, efficient and flexible. Computer scientists from Saarbrücken and Stuttgart have now reached an important milestone together with psychologists from Australia. The software system they developed processes a person's eye movements to calculate whether they are vulnerable, sociable, tolerant, conscientious or curious.

Arthur D. Little Predicts Innovative Next-Generation Lithium-ion Technology Will Triumph in the Future Battery Market

Arthur D. Little (ADL) today released a new study, “Future of batteries: Winner takes all?” Based on extensive market analysis, the report examines the current enormous level of activity in the sector, which has seen existing and new players invest over $13.7 billion over the last two years. It predicts future trends that will meet growing needs in areas such as electric vehicles (EVs), renewable power solutions and consumer electronics. It aims to help players across the ecosystem build effective strategies that unlock value and market position.

Kyoto University and Panasonic Developed New Remote Sensing Technology for Vital Signs by Millimeter-wave Radar

Kyoto University and Panasonic Corporation today announced that they developed a new remote sensing technology for vital signs such as heart rate, heartbeat interval and others. This technology consists of high sensitive spread-spectrum radar and feature-based heartbeat interval estimation algorithm, and enables to measure heart rate and its intervals in real time without placing sensors on the body with as high accuracy as electrocardiographs.
