Biometrics Partnership Announced

The Department of Electronics is pleased to announce a partnership with Accenture Technology Labs, which will enable selected students on Kent’s MSc in Information Security and Biometrics to undertake their Masters project module at Accenture’s Labs in Sophia Antipolis, France.

Accenture Technology Labs is the technology Research and Development (R&D) organisation within Accenture, turning technology innovation into business results for almost 20 years.
Alongside the core R&D domains of Analytics & Insight, Human Computer Interaction, Infrastructure, Mobility & Sensors, and Systems Integration, the Labs is the home of Biometrics within Accenture, developing biometrics assets, co-ordinating pilots, and supporting client projects with expert resources.

Recent biometrics projects include the “miSense” Trial to streamline passenger travel at London Heathrow airport, and the “Next Generation Branch”, a showcase Bank-of-the-Future, designed and built in co-operation with Accenture’s Financial Services group.
