About ID R&D

No need to introduce yourself.

When you greet a friend, you don’t ask for their driver’s license, social security number, or the name of their 2nd grade teacher to confirm their identity. You know them by how they look, act and sound. Shouldn’t all authentication be this easy?

ID R&D is a biometric technology company on a mission to deliver a new generation of “zero-effort” authentication. Our vision is a password-less world where users don’t have to sacrifice security to gain convenience. Imagine the ability to access personal information by simply asking or typing a question such as, “What’s my account balance?” Through the science of biometrics and advances in AI, we’re making this vision a reality.

Industry veterans with decades of combined experience in speech technology and biometrics founded ID R&D in 2016. We are a growing team with a shared passion for advancing biometric performance and usability. The company is headquartered in New York City with additional engineering and innovation labs in Santa Clara and Saint Petersburg, Russia.
