Speaker Biography (Joe Rice)
I invented vein pattern recognition, built the first vein biometric readers and wrote the blueprint for the development of the biowatch biometric module, following the theft and fraudulent use of my chequebook & identity in 1983. I was annoyed.... so I decided to do something about it! I didn't think it would take me 30+ years to accomplish....but today its time has come.
