Jack Ma wants you to verify payments by taking a selfie
Monday, March 23, 2015/
Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma has demonstrated using facial recognition technology, rather than a PIN or password, to authenticate mobile and online payments.
The demonstration came at the end of a keynote speech by the Alibaba founder at the CeBIT computer conference in Germany on March 16. The technology was developed by Alipay, a mobile payments service spun out from Alibaba prior to its IPO.
Last week, after the conference, SmartCompany reported how Microsoft is adding biometric passwords, including facial recognition, to Windows 10.
