Windows 10 puts biometric security front and center

J. Peter Bruzzese | April 1, 2015
The future of travel, mobile payments, system authentication, and even safe driving may rely on biometric technology.

Another example is Intercore's Driver Alertness Detection System. It monitors a driver's alertness level in real time, then notifies a driver (and third parties) when he or she appears to be drowsy to reduce the risk of accidents caused by drowsiness and fatigue. The system monitors 524 points of the driver's eyes, face, and head to determine the driver's alertness level.

Of course biometrics is a key factor in the creation of next-gen mobile payment systems, such as Apple Pay -- no more credit cards, only mobile biometric payment systems.

Both the hardware and the operating system need to advance to make biometrics more secure. Windows 10 is where Microsoft is making its advances.
