Money2020: Visa Europe Collab talks wearables and authentication

By Mike Philpotts, Innovation Partner • Visa

May 06, 2016

We were excited to be part of the Money2020 conference place earlier this year. Collab Innovation Partner Mike Philpotts took part in a panel talking about the evolution of wearables and authentication systems and shared some highlights with industry news site Finextra, as well as talking about some of Visa Europe Collab’s work exploring the space. Check out the video (here or on Finextra) for more from Mike!

“The real value proposition is to have a persistent state of authentication – putting it on first thing in the morning and being able to pay for items throughout the day without further authentication – removing a lot of friction from the payment journey.”
