As you may know from some of my previous posts, I’m really keen on facial recognition for lots of applications, particularly events. But, as with a lot of new technologies, it’s taking time to really get traction. We recently added facial recognition to open the Zuant app when scanning badges at tradeshows so you’re not constantly fiddling around looking for or trying to remember your password. It’s a great timesaver, as remembering/inputting passwords are huge irritations in our digital world. I’m a big fan of Dashlane,…

Indeed, who can argue that if a good Facial Recognition system linked to a full AI back-end had managed to stop any one of the…

Virtual Event Planning Tips During a Global Pandemic

I don’t think any of us have seen such a rapid change in the world as we’re seeing right now with the current global pandemic upon us. Obviously, the Events industry is one of the first to be hit, and early casualties were Mobile World Congress and the Geneva Motor Show. In both cases, I’ve heard these were handled badly and unsympathetically by the hosts, and many big motor manufacturers had to quickly swap their major launches to different locations or go online. Consequently, these manufacturers have realized these venues…
