Interview: Accenture’s Cyrille Bataller on AI and biometrics for borders

The complex passenger flows, demanding identification challenges and pressure-filled security conditions that are inherent in border control make the arena appear an interesting prospect for artificial intelligence-based solutions that can revolutionise critical processes. Machine-learning technologies being developed could identify risk patterns at speeds way beyond humans’ capacity, and when tied with the powerful security offered by biometrics, AI’s potential to disrupt the world of borders expands even further. What then is the future for the border guard? Will their decades of document security expertise and nuanced instincts be made rendered obsolete by a ‘border bot’? Planet Biometrics caught up with Cyrille Bataller, Artificial Intelligence lead at Accenture, to learn about his team’s AI initiatives for borders and about his views on the importance of a “people-first” approach. What kinds of role…
