Trust Stamp Announces Notice of Allowance for Three New U.S Patent Related to its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based Biometric Authentication Technology
ATLANTA, April 12, 2023 — Trust Stamp (Nasdaq: IDAI), the Privacy-First Identity Company TM providing artificial intelligence (AI)-powered trust and identity services used globally across multiple sectors, announces that it has received Notices of Allowance for an additional three patent applications from the United States Patent Office.
Patent application No. 17/109,693 directly builds on prior patents related to Trust Stamp’s innovative processes for irreversibly transforming biometric and other identity data into an irreversibly transformed identity token or “IT².” Trust Stamp believes this technology provides an unparalleled level of data protection, while improving the efficiency and expanding the utility of legacy identity systems. Patent application 17/966,355 expands the range of use cases for the IT2 into NFT’s and the Metaverse by verifying the ownership of cryptographic asset contracts using embedded IT2 technology, while patent application No. 17/401,508 introduces a new authentication methodology utilizing evidence of control of third-party accounts.
Trust Stamp CEO Gareth N. Genner comments: “Over the last seven years we have invested heavily in research and development, and the creation of intellectual property, and our extensive patent portfolio is the first fruit of those investments. Following our transition to our low-code SaaS Orchestration Layer in 2022, we are focused this year on the monetization of our technology via SaaS sales to government and the private sector, both direct and through channel partners, and we believe that our unique proprietary technology positions us well in that regard.”
“We already had fourteen issued patents before these three allowances, and we have an additional 16 patent applications pending in addition to the three recently allowed. We're proud to be at the forefront of using AI for these types of applications and these patents evidence our continuing commitment to a privacy first approach. Our innovative technology can be implemented ‘on the edge,’ meaning that it can operate on devices that may not have internet or other ways to access server resources powering the creation of privacy-first applications where the user’s biometrics never leave their own device, as well as use in remote locations that do not have Internet or other data services available to the user.”
Trust Stamp believes its privacy-first technology is unique in that it replaces the storage and use of biometric templates with an irreversibly transformed identity token (IT)² generated by a neural network. The AI processes used include image segmentation utilizing deep learning. The use of AI allows Trust Stamp to provide users with the benefits of biometric-derived authentication without losing control of or sharing their original biometric data. The (IT)² cannot be reverse-transformed to recover the original data and thus offers a privacy-protecting methodology to enjoy the benefits of biometric-based authentication without the dangers of storing biometric templates.
