 Neurotechnology, a provider of deep-learning-based solutions and high-precision biometric identification and object recognition technologies, and its consortium partner and the prime bidder Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services organization, today announced that their consortium has been selected by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as one of the three Biometric Service Providers (BSP) for the world’s largest biometric ID system, Aadhaar. The consortium will provide UIDAI with services for biometric duplicate checking and biometric authentication used for the issuance and verification of India’s Unique Identification numbers (UID) issued to all citizens of India.
 
TCS and Neurotechnology will deploy and maintain the new de-duplication system, which is powered by Neurotechnology’s multi-modal Automatic Biometric Identification Subsystem (ABIS) and biometric SDK technologies for fingerprint, face and iris recognition. The de-duplication system, which is designed to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the biometric data, will begin operating on India’s existing database of 1.3 billion people and it is estimated to grow up to more than 2 billion people over the next 7 years.
 
“We are proud to be a part of the largest biometric program in the world,” said Antonello Mincone, business development manager for Neurotechnology. “It is, for us, a unique opportunity to prove the full range of capabilities, accuracy, speed and scalability of our multi-biometric identification system and SDK – all of which are enhanced in this project through our partnership with TCS, a leading software service provider.”
