Project Abacus is an ATAP project aimed at killing the password
Google ATAP wants to implement a real time security system that constantly makes sure the person using your phone is you.
The folks at ATAP, who are usually busy with things like Project Ara or making our clothes smarter, want to kill the password. It’s a lofty goal, one we’ve heard from many folks in the past, but the demonstration at Google I/O today is one of the first that seems like it might actually work. The effort is currently being called Project Abacus, and it’s the result of a massive collaboration with 33 Universities, tested with 40tb of data across 28 states.
How does it work? Well, in a sense, it works by constantly paying attention to who you are and how you behave.
