BIOZERO: beyond biometrics

The necessity to overcome biometric data collection techniques is increasingly pressing for legal, social and ethical reasons.
Biometric data are in fact personal data that can lead to the identification or discriminatory use (even in automated way) of such data. The most modern biometric data collection systems can define sex, biological age, physical characteristics, mood and ethnicity.
These parameters can therefore determine forms of identity recognition that contributes in feeding the system that educates artificial intelligence. The assignment of biometric data to specific categories therefore highlights several critical issues: ethics, data security and discriminatory use.

The anonymization of biometric data is a process that is not always conclusive as it is based on forms of data processing and on a temporary storage of this data.
Biometrics can be exceeded in different ways.
Munogu has developed BIOZERO, a biometric zero impact solution based on a range of technologies that includes color mapping and radar imaging.

The color mapping algorithm is based on AI Tensor Flow developed by Munogu’s R&D team. The color mapping technology allows to obtain information typically available only to biometric systems (EG. face detection) through "pseudo-biometric" strategies, without actually accessing data that can be classified as sensitive in terms of GDPR compliance. This allows the emission of a simplified DPIA free of significant hazards.

The innovation driving "Biozero" is the AI algorithm  whose distinctive feature consists in being able to perform the analysis of color picking related to the body track of the user, populate with specific information the icon associated with that specific user and eventually also carry out a check re-identification.
This is the necessary prerequisite to ensure an orderly and reliable flow in the checksum phase (verification). The color mapping technology in fact can be used to manage traffic in public offices and allows to have a queue management system completely immaterial and without physical contact between person and surfaces (contactless).

The Biozero solution can also be based on radar imaging technologies that allow to map a space and identify the position of subjects in the environment, to trace their behaviour and understand how to organise an effective flow without the collection or use of biometric data.

How does BIOZero work?

Biozero is the paradigm of Munogu in the development of Kiosk solutions.
The use of radar-doppler technology combined with a platform for artificial intelligence such as Kiosk, allows to obtain a wide range of advantages:

  • protect privacy: the radars, unlike the cameras, are certified “Biozero”. Radars have no impact on privacy, do not have to anonymize sensitive data, nor transmit them, as THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO GENERATE THEM. This allows to skip the complicated compliance verification process that involves the DPO in the drafting of a DPIA, the legal team and all possible repercussions (and costs) for preventive maintenance related to the eventuality of a Breach date.
  • The way BioZero sees the world: the radars see "natively" the world on a Cartesian plane and are able to precisely place people in space, the cameras must otherwise operate hypothetical approximations based on calculations of perspective, "size" and calculation of "escape points". These circumstances impact on the solution delivery process.
  • BIOzero is useful and not disturbing: considering the organizational criticalities it is important that a technology solution has a minimal impact on the so-called "operations", installation, maintenance and monitoring must be kept to a minimum effort and must allow the exclusion of specific areas from monitoring activity (very complex activity with a camera or with wearable devices).
  • Stay Home: the service works even without connectivity, this prevents any malicious attempt of intrusion into the data stream transmitted in cloud solutions-based and reduces the times of inoperativeness of the service with a significant and positive impact on the processes.
