Forbes Contributor Chris Versace Highlights InterDigital/BIO-Key Relationship
Chris Versace, a high-profile technology columnist and financial analyst, today mentioned InterDigital’s relationship with biometric security company BIO-Key in his piece in Forbes. Versace’s piece discusses Apple’s possible fingerprint-recognition security measures in the rumored iPhone 5S.
There’s no doubt that biometric security is a huge growth area in mobile, and in technology generally. The BIO-Key deal is also noteworthy from another respect: it’s an agreement struck by InterDigital’s recently-launched Innovation Partners unit, which is tasked with sourcing new technologies that are being developed outside of InterDigital’s core technology research areas, through partnerships with companies, research entities and even individuals.
