IDAudio™

for AI-driven Audio Event Detection

In addition to verifying and identifying voice, ID R&D applies its Artificial Intelligence expertise to enable highly accurate, non-speech audio event detection.

A baby crying, a person screaming, or someone calling for help are just some audio events that require action. Manually monitoring for these sounds, either in close proximity or remotely through a monitoring device, not only demands attention but also requires the person to be within hearing distance. This is not always possible, and is where audio event detection, or sound recognition, solves real problems.

Monitor Audio Streams for Important Sounds

IDAudio can turn any microphone – like those in smart speakers and cameras – into a sound recognition and alerting device. It can also enhance security by listening for sounds outside the field of view of the camera. With an extremely low false positive rate, the software’s sensitivity is ideal for automated continuous monitoring. It listens for audio events and automatically alerts an application if a specific sound is detected, so that a human may take the appropriate action.

The AI-based algorithms that make up IDAudio run embedded on a server or locally on a camera or other device to analyze and return results nearly instantaneously.
