According to the World Bank's Identification for Development (ID4D) program, more than 40% of people without ID in the world live in Africa. At BACE, Our work has the objective to create unique digital identities for any citizens by investing and using biometrics technologies, especially facial recognition.
The poor identity scheme and lack of banking infrastructure in cities excludes the local population from basic services such as access to financial services, access to voting rights, and access to education. With BACE, People will be able to apply online services and get verified remotely in real-time at any time and from anywhere.
The potential for fraud is a major obstacle to the growth of businesses, especially online services. At BACE, we are aware that identity fraud can happen to anyone at any time. We are creating a secure environment between businesses and citizens, protecting personal data, and investing in raising awareness among end-users who are always the weakest link in the chain.
At BACE GROUP, we are a Pan-African team of business-oriented problem solvers, data scientists and AI product managers. We use our tech skills and our experience in the African market to identify, analyze, and solve problems with AI-based solutions.
Co-founder & CEO
I come from the early, early days of technology. Bank of America was one of the first large corporations to invest in big data parsing to know their customers. They brought the different platforms together, online, ATM, tellers and branch officers together so they could enrich the existing relationships. There are 2 ways to grow; attract new customers or deepen the existing customers thru new targeted offers. BACE is the latest cutting edge technology to provide this advantage to their clients.
Most AI facial recognition systems are not ideally suited for African conditions. Bace has developed AI facial recognition APIs that are suited to the broader African market and are also far more cost-effective and scalable. The Bace technologies can be used across a wide cross-section of industries and government applications on the continent, for Africa, by Africa.
We are witnessing an expansion of public and private sector online services in Africa, including eGovernment, eLearning, ecommerce and other private sector based online solutions. With the growth of these services across the continent, the continent needs more online security solutions that ensure reliable, smooth and efficient protection of data. Using Facial recognition technologies such as BACE, developed with the socio cultural context in mind help solve cyber security challenges in Africa but ensure Africa’s share of the Global 7 billion dollar facial recognition market.
