Date and Time: Thursday, December 1, 2016, 2 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EST


Summary: Adrian Weidmann, Founder & Principal of StoreStream Metrics will present “The Promise & Pitfalls of Facial Recognition & Biometrics,” a topic that was also addressed by the Digital Signage Expo Advisory Board’s Network Council last August.

“The ability to trigger creative messaging based on consumer moods, facial expressions, etc., will create more interaction with the consumer and brand, said Ian Dallimore, Director of Innovation & Sales Strategy at Lamar Advertising. If done correctly and subtly, the viewer isn’t even aware they are attracted and engaged with the ad. Facial recognition allows this.“
