But when many in the tech industry hear Xerox, they think of groundbreaking research that has brought innovations such as the GUI to life. Recently, I attended a Xerox Innovation Day event at Bostons Museum of Science. At the event, I met researchers who are developing new products and technologies in a variety of areas, including document security, flexible displays and nanotechnology.
One area of technology I saw that is already being usedand could prove to be valuable to many businesseswas document security. I was especially impressed with a system that worked like hard-copy steganography, making it possible to embed encrypted information in a printed document that could be used for security and document validation.
