The 310099 was named after the postcode at which Alibaba Hangzhou headquarters is located, representing that Hangzhou’s biologic recognition technology has been going global.
Combined with facial recognition tech and multimodal tech, the 310099 makes up with the dependence on the environment of single biometric identification as well as the illegal use of the forged facial.
