Most of us take for granted the ability to prove our identity whenever needed, unlike many refugees and migrants. The Peregrine app developed by AuraQ aims to ease this problem by providing refugees with a secure digital space to store their personal information, gives them full control of their data, ability to provide proof of identity and authentication through state of the art security.

Join us for an overview of the Peregrine app, which was built in just 24 hours and includes technical features such as face recognition, voice authentication and speech to text through integrations with VoiceIT, Google Cloud Speech-to-Text and Microsoft Cognitive Services.

In addition to this, Hans de Visser from Product Management at Mendix will give visitors a unique look into the future of low-code and what to expect from the next big release: Mendix 8.
