ID R&D introduces frictionless voice biometrics for securing access to ChatGPT

IDVoice® integrates with ChatGPT voice controls to authenticate users while they’re speaking to the chatbot

ID R&D, an award-winning provider of AI-based voice biometrics and liveness detection, today announced that it is demonstrating IDVoice® for ChatGPT for the first time at Voice & AI, the leading conference for natural language and generative AI, taking place September 5-7 in Washington, D.C. The solution applies frictionless voice biometrics to secure access to a speech-enabled ChatGPT chat session. As applications for verbal chatbots proliferate, securing access from unauthorized users is becoming an increasingly common requirement. IDVoice performs speaker verification in the background while the user is speaking, avoiding added friction for authorized users.

“We’re so pleased to be demonstrating this exciting new capability for the first time at the premier conversational AI event,” said Alexey Khitrov, CEO and Co-Founder of ID R&D. “Verbal communication with chatbots will soon become commonplace, and securing chatbot sessions from unauthorized access—without burdening users with added friction—will make chatbots that much more useful for a variety of applications that warrant added security.”

IDVoice for ChatGPT works by integrating its speaker verification and liveness detection technology with ChatGPT voice control extensions. When a previously enrolled user speaks to ChatGPT, their speech is biometrically authenticated and converted to text that is then entered as chat text in the ChatGPT mobile app. If an unauthorized person attempts to communicate with the bot, IDVoice speaker verification biometrically rejects them and prevents the chat entry. The demonstration shows how voice biometrics can make access to AI-powered chat applications far more secure in a way that is transparent to authorized users.

ID R&D recently announced a first-place finish in VoxCeleb 2023, a global speaker recognition challenge that evaluates and ranks the performance of voice biometrics algorithms for authenticating speech “in the wild”–in noisy environments without the need for passphrases.
