AI Engineer in training at Global ID F/H

Lausanne, Switzerland


Global ID a startup based at EPFL, provides authentication technology based on invisible keys that can only be used voluntarily: multi-views of finger veins, hidden and obtainable only with the knowledge of the individual. Multi-views also allow for both anti-spoofing and for very high unicity, thereby scaling security to the international category. Your authenticity is also protected throughout life because vein networks are stable through age.

A single finger scan uniquely authenticates your identity to become the safest, most ethical “digital signature”.

With Global ID technology, organizations no longer need to annoy consumers and citizen with a jungle of pseudo-authentication questions and steps, making processes faster and less annoying. No more time and money wasted re-issuing lost or stolen pseudo authentication information nor devices. Less risk of fraud, losses, and data fines. Speed allows in-process authentication and a safe paperless continuum.

With Global ID technology, consumers and citizen no longer need to disclose non-pertinent personal information data to authenticate themselves, just one finger will do, and only with their knowledge.
