SI Evening Talk on E-ID: Aadhaar – E-ID in India (Online)

The discussion of a digital form of ID has been ongoing in Switzerland for years now. After an option was rejected at the ballot in 2021, the government has moved to explore other avenues. While the Swiss Administration is still working on an acceptable solution and does not expect to present one until 2025 at the earliest, other countries have already implemented their own versions. The world’s largest biometric ID system, Aadhaar, was established in India in 2009 and is used not just for identification purposes but also as voter ID, driver‘s license, for food security measures and more. This has simplified a number of administrative processes, but new challenges with enrolment and data security arose. SI believes that we can learn a lot by looking at existing systems and we have invited Indukumar Vellapillil-Hari to discuss the implementation and the challenges of Aadhaar with us. Join us for the first one in a row of SI Evening Talks on the topic of E-ID as we delve deeper into the matter ahead of the E-ID Congress in May 2023.
You can find all information regarding time, date and location as well as a sign-up link below.
