International Advisory Board
An International Advisory Board for the project has been established to bring focus on current demands and aspirations for digital identity programmes. Members include humanitarian and public sector leaders active in national identity and identity for development initiatives. This group advises on the global effort to advance recognition for identity as a human right and facilitator of economic prosperity and inclusion. Their combined experience draws on pioneering developments in the field and active engagement with at least 50 countries of varied economic settings around the world.
Technical Working Group
The Turing is working in consultation with a Technical Working Group of leading innovators and government practitioners that meets regularly to address technical themes and their social impact, anticipate challenges, and help shape the development of guidance and tools. This group, chaired by Dr Mark Hooper, the project’s Technical Development Manager, evolves to respond to the technical issues as they arise. It currently includes contributors from three national governments, designers of functional and sovereign identities, and specialists driving contextual perspective including, equitable and sustainable development; the systematic study of individual cultures; and requirements for people-focussed systems.
Modular Open Source Identity Platform (MOSIP)
MOSIP, the modular and open-source identity project anchored by the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B), is a global public good project. The MOSIP team is actively collaborating with the Turing’s work in digital identity, facilitating implementation of test environments for the platform to capture data ‘stories’ of value across both the development and research activities. The MOSIP platform provides an opportunity to explore user behaviours and tactical interventions and enhancements relevant to many identity systems. It also facilitates the opportunities to contribute tactical interventions as contributions to the MOSIP open-source project and attract the scrutiny of the open-source development community.
