Biometric Systems

Wendy Grossman interviews James L Wayman. A leading capacity in biometric systems.

Interesting read, especially some of his reservations: Some people say it's like barcodes, which didn't work in the early days. Biometrics will get better, it's true. But it's a bad analogy because barcodes can be controlled in manufacturing. If a checker has to type in the code too many times they make the manufacturer redesign the can. Human beings can't go to God. No one technology is going to provide the magic bullet. People are different in ways that you could never imagine. They never have what you think they are going to have where you think they are going to have it.
