ID Limelight Award

The ID Limelight Award is assigned to the person who has attracted the highest media attention for his revolutionary ideas on the possible applications of auto ID technology.

The five candidates are:

Brent Callinicos
John Halamka
Renato Martini
Ronald Noble
Gary Polson

Brent Callinicos
VP & Treasurer, Google

For the introduction of the Google Wallet and Google’s credit card for its advertising customers, offering its clients a credit line to try and drum up business in the online ad market. The card was designed to help small and medium-sized businesses that advertise on Google but who often do not have the funds to support a heavy ad campaign ahead of a big sales season, such as Valentine’s day or Halloween.

John Halamka
Manager of Information Systems and Communications, Harvard Medical School

For distinguishing himself as head of the commission appointed under the administration of Barack Obama to progress the much-discussed e-health scenario in the US, which aims, among others, for the replacement of paper medical records. As a policy maker in medical, technical and computing, he sees Electronic Health Records having enormous advantages and believes that the time is ripe for a new era of synergy between medicine and technology, between players like Google, Apple and Microsoft, and the host of hospitals and research centers in various parts of the world.

Renato Martini
President/Director, ITI (Information Technology Institute) – Brazil

For the impressive ongoing developments in the Brazilian Public Key infrastructure – the regulatory and technological framework that lends legal validity to the presentation of personal attributes and manifestations of will in the Brazilian information environment. Under his guidance, Brazil’s leadership in this area is likely to reach a pan-American dimension.

Ronald Noble
Secretary General, Interpol

For promoting the need for a common platform for a globally verifiable electronic identity card (e-ID) system for migrant workers to regulate migration levels and manage borders to satisfy common standards internationally. The intention is for both the migrant workers and the countries themselves to benefit because efficiencies would improve, security at the national and global level would improve and corruption would be reduced.

Gary Polson
Director, Propeller Guard Information Center

For the development of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) boat engine kill switches (emergency engine cut-off switches), used to kill the engine if the operator falls overboard. Boats often begin spinning wildly in the “Circle of Death” after the operator has been ejected and sensor based kill switch systems have began to address some of the hassles involved with using lanyards. The RFID tag based invention illustrates a different sensor based approach with some additional advantages.
