WWTO April 2014: Bionym Exclusive Demo/Panel & ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Glassware

This month Bionym, the creators of the Nymi - a wristband that provides persistent identity through the uniqueness of the heart, will be giving an exclusive demo presentation.

Following the demo, there will be a panel interview with the Bionym team to probe deeper into the technology, their security and privacy platform, and their vision of persistent identity and its repercussions in everything from retail to the home. This will be your chance for a candid Q&A with the team behind the Nymi.

Panelists: Andrew D’Souza, President; Karl Martin, CEO & Founder; Yevgeniy Vahlis, Chief Cryptographer; and James Elson, VP Manufacturing.
