HI! I'M ASHOK SINGAL
With over 20 years of technical experience in the software industry and a background in product ownership, product management, and strategy, I am a trusted expert in identity verification and biometrics. In my past leadership roles at top public companies in the Financial Services industry, my teams successfully designed, built, and launched several identity and biometrics products that are widely used by businesses and individuals worldwide.
However, despite significant advancements in biometrics technology, security, privacy, and performance, there is still a disconnect between academia and the industry. Biometric product managers often struggle to understand what can realistically be implemented, leading to a trade-off between performance, security, and privacy. The good news is that this does not have to be a zero-sum game, and I believe in finding solutions that balance all three aspects effectively.
