The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence whose mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
The purpose of this research is to explore the opportunities of crowd sourcing the onboarding of citizens onto a country’s digital identity system to persons of authority within the community. The goal is to provide the means whereby the introducer can use a mobile device and follow a process that enables self-verification and for them to also provide witness to the citizen’s existence. This process will support the capturing of some level of biometrics which could be sufficient to provide a full, or provisional, identity for the citizen. This project will explore the risks to the process and the individuals, it will also address anomaly detection methods to determine inappropriate behaviours in the onboarding process.
