ID R&D Accepted Into the Microsoft IoT & AI Insider Labs Program

The biometrics firm will have the opportunity to collaborate with Microsoft’s AI and IoT expertise to enhance authentication solutions

NEW YORK, NY – October 29, 2018 – ID R&D, an award-winning biometric solutions provider offering proprietary AI-based behavioral, voice, and anti-spoofing user authentication capabilities, today announced it has been accepted into Microsoft’s global IoT & AI Insider Labs, a program designed for selected companies to create, operate, and enhance intelligent product solutions at scale.

Microsoft has invested in IoT and AI to transform how people, devices, and data interact, and to monitor how this digital transformation is changing the face of business. The Microsoft IoT and AI Insider Labs are a resource for companies looking to embrace these trends, and to develop, prototype, and test IoT and AI solutions for market commercialization.

“Microsoft offers experience, ability, insight, and a reputation for being at the forefront of technological disruption since the beginning,” said Konstantin Simonchik, CTO of ID R&D.  “That ID R&D will be able to work out of their state-of-the-art facilities as well as have access to Microsoft’s deep domain expertise is an honor for us and speaks to the commitment our firm places on delivering a peerless AI-based biometric solution.”

Microsoft has three Insider Labs located in the USA, China, and Germany. ID R&D will work in the Seattle lab with specific focus on its multi-modal biometric authentication solutions, including AI-enhanced features for further reducing user requirements for secure identification. Furthermore, the collaboration with the Microsoft IoT and AI Insider Labs enables the company to launch a cloud service that developers can use to develop and prototype their own solutions, enabling those developers to incorporate ID R&D’s industry-leading technology with less effort.

Using proprietary AI-based voice, facial, and behavioral biometric technology, ID R&D delivers comprehensive, accurate, friendly, and fast biometric solutions for companies looking for next-level security and a frictionless authentication.

Microsoft’s invitation continues a trend of strong momentum for ID R&D, including the company being named a top-ten AI startup by Microsoft Ventures earlier this year. Other recent industry recognition and developments include Samsung’s announcement of ID R&D availability on its SDS Digital ID Platform, its selection as a TechCrunch Top Pick for Fintech for Disrupt SF, its release of the world’s first biometric solution for messaging platforms, and its newest release of IDVoice, its voice biometric solution that delivers a 300% improvement in authentication speed over the industry standard.
