Incubator: Aditya Somani: Identification (and security) made simple.

Joined in theIncubator today by Aditya Somani Co-Founder of Ample Biometrics, headquartered in Atlanta, GA. Ample Biometrics is the first plug-and-play, multiple application vein scanner designed from the ground up. Veins offer an added level of security and convenience over fingerprints and other biometrics. Ample seamlessly integrates with any imaginable application.

Aditya Somani, intrepidNOWNotes and discussion guide:

1. “Ample is a company that wants to identify people….” The new way to look at ID and security…

2. Making identification simple…

3. Vein scanning, used by the CIA even today, how can that change things today? And how we’ve made that affordable by the masses…..

4. How does actual vein scanning technology work? How is this different than finger-print scanning on my smart phone? The first plug-in-play scanner of this type on the market…

5. What are some of the applications here? Such as, time attendance monitoring and access control…

6. “Biometrics is the future…Minimizing the security attack points…”

7. Passwords first, then payments… But this is designed FOR THE CONSUMER first…

8. The future ease with which this can be integrated into “holding your hand over your trackpad…and it just works…”

9. How does this technology become so “powerful yet insignificant?” …”Integrated into almost anything???”

10. How are you leveraging what’s happening with payments and healthcare tech here in Atlanta to grow the business? As well as partnering with a large Fortune 500 company bases here in Atlanta?

11. Time for the Wela Question of the Day!
