Lawyer counters UIDAI, tells SC can't open account without Aadhaar 18.4.2018 General News
A senior lawyer today told the Supreme Court that he was not allowed to open a fixed deposit account without the Aadhaar number, while challenging the UIDAI for maintaining that authentication of the 12 digit unique national identifier was not required for every transaction. Senior advocate Shyam Divan, who represents former HC judge Justice (retd) K.S. Puttaswamy who is opposed to Aadhaar, countered the submission of senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), that Aadhaar authentication was not required for all transactions. "I do not have Aadhaar. I went to UCO bank branch in the Supreme Court for opening a fixed deposit account. I referred to the Supreme Court order. Still, they refused to open the account and insisted for Aadhaar," Divan told a five-judge constitution bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan. The apex court, in its interim order, had said

A three-member team from the National Commission for Women has conducted surprise inspection of two shelter homes for women here and took note of the "financial constraints" being faced by those facilities, an official release said. During the inspections of Bapnu Ghar on Bhagwan Das Road and Digmar Jain Mahila Ashram in Daryaganj yesterday, the team met two deaf-and-dumb inmates whose identities were not known, it said.

"Despite financial constraints, the facilities were found to be satisfactory with comfortable and clean bedding, ...

Biometric authentication would form wealth of info which can be muisused: SC 18.4.2018 General News
If biometric authentication is attached to every transaction entered into by a person, it would "form a wealth of information" necessitating the need for data protection, the Supreme Court observed today. A five judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, apprised the UIDAI of its apprehensions saying biometric authentication of Aadhaar number in every transaction could lead to aggregation of meta data of citizens, which can be collated and used for many purposes including surveillance. "Fingerprint by itself does not disclose any information. But, when it attaches with all the other information, it forms a wealth of information and then comes the need for data protection," the bench, also comprising Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, said. "If my biometrics are attached to every transaction I undertake, it ceases to be just an identification mark," Justice Chandrachud

Certain section of people trying to fail Aadhaar by stoking imaginary fear: UIDAI 18.4.2018 General News
UIDAI today dismissed concerns that it might use Aadhaar data analysis in the future, saying a certain section of people are creating "imaginary fear" to "fail" the national ID programme. In a statement here, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) clarified that the media reports published today quoting UIDAI's Counsel Rakesh Dwivedi's argument yesterday in the Supreme Court that Google is trying to fail Aadhaar "are not correct". "...Rakesh Dwivedi, Senior Advocate had submitted that as far as Google, Facebook and Twitter are concerned, they cannot be compared with Aadhaar due to the nature of information being different and also due to difference in the nature of algorithms being used," the UIDAI statement added. Drawing a distinction between itself and such companies, it said Aadhaar is only matching biometrics, while the other global companies are using learning tools for analysis of data which creates knowledge. Moreover, UIDAI said law prohibits it from doing any .

UIDAI brings updated QR code for offline Aadhaar verification 18.4.2018 General News
To provide an extra layer of privacy to Aadhaar, UIDAI has introduced an updated 'QR code' that holds non-sensitive details like name, address, photo, and date of birth, and can be used for offline user verification without the 12-digit ID number. With Aadhaar increasingly becoming the nationally-accepted ID for all kinds of work, the new QR code, that now comes with photo, can be used in offline mode in a way that will safeguard against any tempering of documents. This would be especially handy for establishing the identity with non-statutory entities, say, the likes of online shopping portals when delivering goods. Aadhaar holders can download and print their biometric ID with the QR code from the website of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) or its mobile app. A QR code is a form of barcode label which contains machine-readable information. Users can manually blacken the Aadhaar number and use the printout with the new QR code for establishing their identity, offline .

New AI system can recognise faces in the dark 17.4.2018 General News
Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence that can recognise a person's face even in the dark, a development that could lead to enhanced real-time biometrics and post-mission forensic analysis for covert nighttime operations. The motivations for this technology, developed by researchers from the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), are to enhance both automatic and human-matching capabilities. "This technology enables matching between thermal face images and existing biometric face databases/watch lists that only contain visible face imagery," said Benjamin S Riggan, a research scientist at ARL. "The technology provides a way for humans to visually compare visible and thermal facial imagery through thermal-to-visible face synthesis," said Riggan. Under nighttime and low-light conditions, there is insufficient light for a conventional camera to capture facial imagery for recognition without active illumination such as a flash or spotlight, which would give away the position of
