Where Biotech and Fintech meet
December 3, 2015
Hosted by Brett King
For ages, our signatures have been our identifiers with banks, but in the mobile age, signatures are risky, slow, and far less secure than other methods of identification. Between fingerprints, iris scans, biorhythms, and many other bodytech apps, there are better, faster, and more secure identifiers that banking can use.
Today Brett speaks with Bill O'Farrrell and Dr. Eric Rachlin, Co-founders of Body Labs, who are developing several new technologies that show how the human body is able to enter virtual space.
Brett also talks with Biphin Sahni, Head of Innovation and R&D for Wells Fargo about the Wells Fargo B2B innovation labs. Graduates of the Innovation lab will be joining as well, including Tobias Rush from Eyeverify, Stephen Burke of Context360, Alexandr Opalka of MotionSavvy, and Evan Macmillan of Gridspace.
And we have a long overdue chat with our blockchain correspondent, Michael Casey.
