The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is prepping to use Aadhaar for more use cases and collaborate with organisations like the United Nations and World Bank, as well as other global economies to make digital identity available in different countries.
Dr. Saurabh Garg, CEO of UIDAI said, “We are looking at quantum computing, how we can harness smartphone capabilities for authentication, and maybe how to decentralise our blockchain. We will be happy to collaborate with other nations on how they can use our architecture and our systems.”
The organisation will also look to leverage data analytics through artificial intelligence and machine learning for Aadhaar-based verification of documents.
Garg was in conversation with Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma at the InFinity Forum organised by the International Financial Services Centres Authority (IFSCA).
