Soon your physical and digital identities will exist as one — the key will be your iris. The potential for this new reality to be utopian or dystopian lies squarely in our ability to balance the need for security with privacy, personal liberties and convenience. Jeff's talk explores a radical view of privacy, transparency and digital expedience.

Jeff Carter has been researching and predicting the profound impacts to human evolution caused by the convergence of a person's digital and physical identity. He holds several patents related to information banking and the monetization of personal data for the privacy, control and empowerment of an individual. He is chief strategist for EyeLock Inc., an iris-based identity management company, and serves on several corporate boards, including AlphaVue, a political advisory company. His hardcover book "No Limit: The Texas Hold 'Em Guide to Winning in Business," was published in 2009. His latest book, a collaboration with Wall Street Journal best-selling author Donald Krause, is "The Art of War for Cancer." David Brin, Ph.D., and winner of the Hugo, Locus, Campbell and Nebula awards, said, "There is much in this volume that is both wise and helpful, focusing the mind on a coming struggle over life itself."


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
