What if facial recognition could determine your ancestry without the need for 23andme? Come see Kairos show off this feat of artificial intelligence at TechCrunch Disrupt SF next week. We’ll follow up the demo with a fireside chat investigating Kairos’ commitment to not be evil. “Facial recognition-powered government surveillance is an extraordinary invasion of the privacy of all citizens — and a slippery slope to losing control of our identities altogether” CEO Brian Brackeen wrote in a TechCrunch guest post in June.
Founded six years ago, Kairos has been steadily building facial recog to combat bank fraud, secure enterprise software with biometrics, and to create smart contracts so only the right person can collect on a cryptocurrency transaction. Now it’s running a token sale to fund the next stages of its tech development.
