On the 8th of August, GSMA published on its website that E-Group and GSMA signed the licence agreement stating that E-Group’s IDX product complies with the Mobile Connect specifications. We are among the first few companies (like GlobalSign, G&D, Ping Identity) appointed as a Mobile Connect Vendor so far.
The GSMA Personal Data programme is one of the GSMA’s top priority programmes. It has developed Mobile Connect, a global digital identity solution that offers a safe, seamless and convenient consumer experience, a consistent user interface and low barriers to entry.
Adding Mobile Connect identification to E-Group’s IDX solution helps service providers and mobile operators to manage consumers’ digital identities across multiple online services, ranging from access to content and services on the web through to more secure e-government and banking services.

The intelligence is artificial, but our beer is real!
Antal Kuthy, CEO of E-Group presented their R&D flagship 'MIZU' fusion framework of artificially intelligent dialogues at IBM's SEE BusinessConnect event.
The presentation demonstrated the amazing opportunities provided by IBM Watson, and the synergies of E-Group's AI Cognitive Computing developments. As a specialist of secure transactions, e-identity and smart platforms, E-Group is actively seeking the best use cases of leading AI technologies (both language and cognitive) through their applied AI solutions. During the presentation, Kuthy introduced visitors to a mock scenario of ordering beer in an English pub with the help of AI, by having a conversation with the spirit of the pub. This application well represents E-Group's dedication to intelligent dialogue solutions.
