SmartMetric to integrate AI into biometric credit card
By Delisha Fernandes
SmartMetric, a FinTech product innovation company is close to releasing its advanced premium fingerprint biometric-activated credit card; its engineers are now working on adding embedded AI into the card’s electronics.
Since SmartMetric designed its biometric credit card with a dual processor, it has allowed the company to innovate beyond the simple functions of a standard credit card.
The payments processing chip is separate from the advanced cryptographic MCU embedded in the SmartMetric card. This MCE is used for storing the cardholder’s fingerprint and performing computing functions such as storing and matching the user’s fingerprint on the card.
Adding embedded AI inside the electronics of the SmartMetric biometric credit card will provide a whole new world of application and real-time uses beyond doing a simple credit card transaction. AI with biometrics is revolutionary in credit card security and user applications.
“Because we already use a separate advanced and powerful MCU with IO ports, we can now quickly innovate new functions into our biometric credit card, such as embedding AI into our electronics platform.” said Chaya Hendrick, President and CEO SmartMetric
Hendrick added, “We have a team of some of the smartest electronics and software engineers in the world working for us in Tel Aviv, Israel, who are now enthusiastically working on bringing AI as an embedded functional solution into our biometric fingerprint credit card. AI is touching all corners of our world, and we are excited to be able to bring functional AI as an embedded solution into the credit card industry.”
The SmartMetric electronics and software team has worked for SmartMetric for over a decade and is well-versed in adapting advanced electronic solutions into miniature, very thin form factors.
