"The commencement of trading is an important milestone in FacePrint's quest to develop and market best-of-breed identity solutions that are financially accessible to all users, big and small, throughout the US and around the world," said Pierre Cote, founder and CEO of FacePrint.
Initially, FacePrint's E-DNA core technology is providing the foundation for the development of biometric solutions in the face recognition sector of the identity verification and determination market. Longer-term, FacePrint intends to aggressively leverage this core technology with ground breaking identity solution applications in the areas of fingerprint, voice, iris, and retina recognition.
"FacePrint's entire management team is convinced that our E-DNA core technology has the potential to revolutionize the biometrics marketplace," said Cote. "We are aiming first to develop applications for the face recognition sector of the market where current solutions leave much to be desired. We plan to follow that with multi-mode face/fingerprint recognition solutions in a high-performance/low-price package that is simply not achievable with current technologies."
