Global identity verification provider, Onfido, has been selected among hundreds of companies as one of the World Economic Forum’s ‘Technology Pioneers’ – a prestigious group of the world’s most innovative companies.

London-based Onfido uses machine learning to verify a person’s identity, helping over 1,500 clients globally work out who they can trust in a digital world.

The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers community are early-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.

The 30 technology pioneers that made it to the final selection are active in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, biotechnology, blockchain, cybersecurity, the (industrial) internet of things and other pioneering technologies.

“Being acknowledged as a pioneer by the World Economic Forum is both an honour and a privilege,” said Onfido CEO, Husayn Kassai.

“We’re ambitious in our vision to change the way identity is used around the world – from granting access to financial services, to voting, to healthcare, its applications are many and impact potentially life-changing, especially for the unbanked.”

Jamie Miles, Onfido’s gaming expert, told TotallyGaming.com: “2017 has been a fantastic year so far. ICE Totally Gaming back in February was a tremendous success and just last month, we were shortlisted for EGR’s E-Gaming Awards.

“The conversation about RegTech is growing and I was delighted to explore this in a panel at the GamCrowd Tech Conference. I’m looking forward to what the second half of the year has to bring.”

Totally Gaming says: The World Economic Forum award comes at the ideal time, as Onfido is taking the next step as a company to engage with stakeholders in government, society and global organisations to help improve digital security in the 21st century.
