Mechanisms for storing, verifying & curating identification.

Mechanisms for storing, verifying & curating identification.

Comprising a mobile application and a unique set of collaborative biometric devices, the BRidGE platform proposal encompasses mechanisms for storing, verifying and displaying identification.

Individuals can securely enter valued attributes into a software system that utilises distributed ledger (blockchain) technology. Palm facing devices recognise vein patterns of unique users, allowing interpersonal agreement to be recorded on chosen fragments of information. With unique interactions the app becomes an identity mixing desk that allows a user to selectively disclose data and create formal or playful representations of their identity tailored to specific contexts.

Collaboration with Andrew Slack, Ivy Liang & Reto Togni

 Converging global factors are leading to an increasing vulnerability of identity as more people move around the planet and regional norms begin to dissipate. Existing systems are also being challenged to re-evaluate the contextual dynamic between the individual and their communities. We challenged ourselves to give citizens agency over identification for a future of individual representation. A working model that forms the core of the proposal was developed in discussion with leading experts in the field.   Insights gathered from extensive interviews with potential users & our research informed a series of collaborative workshops. These allowed us to define core functionality and design parameters relating to physical and digital interactions, the language used and communication challenges.
