We’re back with TechSprint #2 where we address another
challenge of the future – Digital Identity

CHALLENGES

More than 1 billion people worldwide live without any form of ID. Moreover, more than 2 billion people are unbanked or underbanked. This is standing in the way of financial inclusion. It’s a costly societal affair, as it blocks people’s access to the labour market. In fact, it is such a pressing issue that the UN Sustainable Development Goals directly address this in goal 16.9:
All humans should be provided legal identity by 2030.

On the other end of the spectrum, there is an opposite pressing issue – a lot of people are drowning in an endless line of digital accounts and logins. Most advanced economies today also has a publicly managed identity system corresponding with social security numbers or equivalent. But these systems usually don’t speak well with each other, much less across boarders. There is a need to get down to the fundamentals, so that we’ll not just reach the UN SDG 16.9, but also have systems that integrate with the future: biometry, such as face recognition, deep learning, and cloud-based systems.

An effective digital identity system requires two main processes to seamlessly function and interact.
We distinguish these two aspects as ‘Identification’ being the verification and authentication aspect, and ‘Authorization’ being the access and interaction with the system.
We will address both these aspects in this upcoming TechSprint.

–  Two tracks to address  –

Track questions just serve as examples

IDENTIFICATION

How might we design a system that can verify a user in real time, before authentication or online transaction? How do we make such a system compliant with the latest of privacy regulations? And could we possibly design a system that allows for seamless convergence of identities?

AUTHORIZATION

With the surge in numbers of sensors and systems, how will this affect our everyday lives? Can we integrate new solutions to safely and smoothly work from home, or anywhere we please? How do we ensure that we don’t drown in an endless number of digital identities?
