TECH5, a leading innovator in the field of biometrics and digital identity management, today announced the integration of their T5-Digital ID with IDVoice®, the AI-based speaker recognition product from ID R&D. With the addition of IDVoice, T5-Digital ID now includes three market-leading NIST-ranked biometric modalities: face, fingerprint, and voice. The combination enables tri-modal biometric capture and liveness detection, digital ID issuance, and mobile authentication in support of use cases that demand the highest levels of flexibility and security.
T5-Digital ID performs contactless capture of all three biometrics using a mobile device and stores them in a T5-Cryptograph—a digital container for high-density storage of encrypted identity data that can be printed or digitally displayed and then scanned with a mobile device, and decrypted to biometrically verify the identity of the user. The innovative technology combination paves the way for a variety of use cases that demand offline biometric verification.
IDVoice was chosen for its powerful feature set as well as its superior accuracy, as demonstrated in several recent algorithm challenges. It ranked first in the Short Duration Speaker Verification Challenge (SdSV), which specifically tests performance in the microphone channel. It also demonstrated strong performance in the telephone channel in the NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation. IDVoice offers many useful features including language independence, advanced voice activity detection for improved speech processing, and speaker diarization for isolation of a specific speaker’s audio stream.
“We are delighted to announce the enhanced accuracy and flexibility of multi-modal T5-Digital ID, with features for voice contactless capture, mobile verification, and authentication enabled by ID R&D’s top-ranked voice biometrics and liveness detection, in combination with contactless capture technologies of TECH5,” said Rahul Parthe, Co-founder, CTO, and Chairman of TECH5. “Speaker recognition enables T5-Digital ID to support many new use cases, such as strengthened biometric verification of a customer for high-value transactions, or as an alternative authentication method when facial recognition is not feasible. Our strategic partnership with ID R&D is driving the development of unique technology solutions that allow mobile phones to serve as trusted tools for highly secure biometrics-based verification.”
By partnering with TECH5, ID R&D can further expand its presence in regions where TECH5 has already acquired a deep understanding of local markets and their specific needs. The companies expect to collaborate initially in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, where together they will offer flexible and robust solutions to new use cases in strong demand.
“We are proud to have such a strong business relationship with TECH5, and eager to jointly pursue opportunities for their ground-breaking solution,” added Alexey Khitrov, CEO and Co-Founder of ID R&D. “As speech becomes an increasingly popular interface, voice biometrics are playing a bigger role in helping secure identity while maximizing convenience and choices for users, and so we’re very pleased to contribute our expertise and technology towards realizing this shared vision.”
TECH5 also plans to integrate IDVoice with its T5-ABIS identification platform, which currently leverages face, fingerprint, and iris recognition for national-level large-scale ID projects. “We see emerging opportunities for voice recognition technologies around the world. The integration of T5-ABIS with IDVoice will result in a uniquely powerful platform for foundational ID projects,” commented Mr. Parthe.
TECH5 is an international technology company founded by experts from the biometrics industry, which focuses on developing disruptive biometric and digital ID solutions through the application of AI and Machine Learning technologies. A combination of sustained investment and single-minded dedication to the development of biometric modalities that capitalize on AI has resulted in TECH5’s algorithms being consistently ranked in the top tier of NIST ranking for face, fingerprint and iris recognition technologies. TECH5 target markets include both Government and Private sectors with products powering Civil ID, Digital ID, as well as authentication solutions that deliver identity assurance for various use cases.
