Alexandria University – Alexandria, Egypt
Business concept and description:
BrainLock is a revolutionary biometric authentication system. However, instead of relying on physical organs like your fingerprint or iris, our security system is based on something invisible to the naked eye, yet more intimate, unforgeable, and more secure than any of the biometrics in the market today.
It’s a brainprint, based on your brain signals and thought process. Using our machine-learning, state-of-the-art model, we’ve managed to find distinctive features in human brain signals that uniquely identify that individual. Add that with the ability to make your password whatever thought process you choose, and the result is something truly powerful, fun, and secure. We give you BrainLock – Your Thoughts … Your Identity.
