Visit to Safran

On Friday last week I visited the offices of Safran at Winnersh triangle. They wished to tell me about their work and the contribution they think their services and products can make to improving border security and security for transactions.  They have expertise in a variety of biometric techniques and can assist with crime fighting, identity checking and other topical matters.

    Disturbing to hear of your interest in tools of oppression.

    Scepticism highly recommended.

    Null hypothesis: the belief in the efficacy of mass consumer biometrics is akin to the belief in astrology.

    It cannot be assumed that Safran’s technology would increase border security.
