Expanding Identity: How biometrics and extended reality are transforming digital ID

Government issued IDs, like passports, are the gold standard for identification. But as people use IDs to access an increasing variety of digital and physical services it might be time to challenge the status quo. Could a single government digital ID be used across both public and private organisations? Could identification expand to incorporate a wider range of elements? And could your ID become something you are, rather than just something you hold?

In this talk, Toni Horn, a strategic design expert from Accenture’s Fjord studio, will look at how technology trends have reshaped how identity is viewed. We will hear examples of how organisations have used biometrics and extended reality to reimagine their relationship with users. And we will explore the opportunity to use them to create more seamless and accessible public services as well as the challenges of applying them within government.
