A new ticket website is launched that can prohibit online trolling of concerts, use face recognition to stop touts and catch criminals with stolen credit cards

  • Barrister is building a platform that can ban partygoers who post offensive content
  • An algorithm scans online for content and measures posts for sentiment
  • Concert goers must take a picture of themselves when buying tickets for events
  • This can be used for face recognition technology and can prevent tickets from being purchased

People who post offensive content online may be denied access to concerts and events by a new event website that can recognize abusive messages in customers' social media posts.

A lawyer specializing in technology law and two security advisors have set up a new platform that examines social media messages via content scanning algorithms.

Richard Ryan, also CEO of security company SentiaGPR, has created a new platform called Vertus Fusion which can be used by locations, artists and ticket providers.

Buyers of tickets must take a picture of themselves when buying a ticket online that can be used for face recognition technology during the event.

When customers provide their data and take a picture of themselves, their identity can be verified via the internet.

If the platform discovers that the customer has posted offensive material including hate speech online, no ticket will be issued.

The platform also cancels concert goers' tickets if they are purchased with stolen credit cards and the photo recognition process can stop the touts.

The platform also monitors the output of social media around an event using a & # 39; geo-fence & # 39 ;, which can follow messages broadcast on more than 40 social media platforms in any language.

Mr. Ryan founded the company alongside his business partners who have backgrounds in the military and New Scotland Yard.

It follows an interview last week in which another top security expert said that stadiums have not changed in almost two years since the attack on an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

Ryan said: & # 39; We have developed a secure ticket platform that can work with ticket providers and locations.

& # 39; Details are sent by the ticket provider, we can verify their identity and we can remove that ticket if they have given another identity or if they have posted hate material or offensive things & # 39 ;.

The bombing in Manchester Arena killed more than 20 people in May 2017 almost two years ago.

Allegedly, the attacker had posted social media with pro-Islamic state messages hours before the attack.

Ryan said: & # 39; Terrorists want to make this information available to say what they will do. We can place a geo-fence around every arena in the world, in every language, and follow it.

& # 39; If someone is a threat, we analyze that person's profile by going to different places on the internet where we can make a risk decision.

Ryan hopes that the platform will be extended to train stations, airports and other busy places.

Regarding privacy, the barrister and CEO said: "We take data sensitivity seriously and we are GDPR compliant.

& # 39; We want to prevent damage to people by using what can be found on the internet.

& # 39; How much do you cost the costs of life? When I send children to a concert, I want to know that security teams are watching them and that locations are doing everything they can to protect them & # 39 ;.
