Biometrics research and development is at the heart of ID R&D. It’s where we invest the most resources, failing fast and succeeding sooner to stay a step ahead.
What's in a name? For us, it's R&D.
Our team is dedicated to advancing the science of biometrics and using the full power of AI to transform the way people securely access information and interact with a growing number of connected devices.
Our team is made up of industry veterans, PhDs, award-winning developers and engineers who have deep expertise in speech, biometrics, AI and machine learning. The team regularly presents biometrics research and participates in challenges and competitions, achieving top rankings in NIST ASR, NIST Language ID, ASVSpoof and other leading benchmark evaluations.
Best-In-Class Voice Biometric Liveness Again in 2019
ID R&D is a clear leader in the largest voice biometric anti-spoofing challenge to date
Our biometrics research focuses on
- Voice Biometrics using Artificial Intelligence, including Deep Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks
- New inventions such as our patented p-vector algorithms and optimized x-vector algorithms for feature extraction
- Anti-spoofing to protect voice and face biometrics from fraud attacks
- Acoustic Event Detection using Deep Neural Networks and signal processing analysis of sounds to detect and alert on non-speech events of interest
From Research to Reality - Industry Firsts
Data Collection and Performance
Quality data is critical to machine learning at scale. The ID R&D team has collected a vast amount of data from universities, the scientific community, crowdsourcing initiatives and internal projects. Additionally we acquire publicly available commercial data sets from organizations such as NIST and IEEE. Our ability to source large amounts of properly collected and labeled data has been an important factor in training and improving our biometrics research, algorithms and biometrics SDKs.
ID R&D’s products are delivered as flexible biometrics SDKs. One or more products can be integrated to develop a custom solution or enhance an application with additional functionality.
Our solutions bundle ID R&D products with third party products and professional services for integration and customization. Our solutions are intended to provide a blueprint for the application of one or more products to solve a specific industry need or business problem.
