Technology Innovation through uncertain times



On August 6, 2020, the first of three City.AI panel discussions on Emerging Contactless AI Technologies was held. The panel explored the emergence of ‘Contactless AI Technology’ through uncertain times. Fascinating to see how companies are innovating rapidly to stay successful through these uncertain times.

Contactless technology enables transactions to be conducted more quickly, easily and securely. Given the advent of COVID-19, this type of technology is expected to grow and become even more widely used in the coming years. Technology companies will be expected to continue developing AI contactless technologies that enable businesses to support purchases, payments, identity verification, remote work environments (‘hoteling') and limiting liability / risks when offering such technologies.

Some of the key innovation characteristics of contactless AI technology highlighted by the panel are:

Trust / Privacy

  • Digital Identity

  • Facial Recognition and other forms of ‘password-less’ verification

  • Next generation technology to mitigate data exploitation & promote data privacy

Convenience / Safety / Security

  • Contactless Technologies

  • Transactions Quickly, Easily, Securely

  • Personal safety first, staying productive, efficient & protected

Smart Tech Connectivity

  • Advanced technology redefining modern life

  • Complexity Simplified

  • Ease of Use facilitating the ‘New Normal’

  • Smart Tech encourages connectivity

Looking forward to Part 2 of the series, which will be hosted again by Technossus and is scheduled for September 3, 2020.
