lecture: Biometric ID cards by the billion

Experiences with Aadhaar in India, or what possibly could go wrong

Event large

India has rolled out a 'voluntary' biometric ID card to all of its billion-plus citizens. Which is fascinating from a social, technical and fundamental rights perspective. This talk is about both intended and unintended consequences of this grand experiment, with a focus on the (implicit) assumptions we tend to make about technology.
