Vivoka Adds ID R&D Voice Biometrics to Its Voice Development Kit
Vivoka has added IDVoice from ID R&D in the latest version of the Vivoka Voice Development Kit (VDK), enabling developers to build and test applications that benefit from ID R&D's advanced voice biometrics.
Vivoka's voice development kit includes a complete range of embedded voice technologies from multiple providers so developers can configure an offline voice solution composed of one or more advanced voice capabilities all in one place.
ID R&D's voice biometric technology is small enough to run on a Neural Processing Unity (NPU), works with ultra-short speech utterances, and is text- and language-independent. Vivoka's V3 VDK also includes ID R&D voice biometric anti-spoofing for detecting attacks that use recorded or synthesized speech.
"Biometrics has the unique ability to bring instant personalization and authentication to voice-enabled applications and devices of all kinds," said Alexey Khitrov, ID R&D's CEO, in a statement. "It's a natural fit and completely frictionless for users who don't need to do anything other than speak their request in order for the system to quickly and accurately identify them. Running voice biometrics at the edge brings never-before realized value to smart speakers, smart cameras, connected cars, robotics, and more."
"As the voice market continues to evolve, new use cases for speech technology will benefit from faster and easier ways for developers and companies to build and test their ideas. Our partnership with ID R&D provides access to state-of-the-art voice biometrics through our Voice Development Kit, opening up new possibilities for our customers to utilize speech technology to create better, more secure user experiences,”" said William Simonin, CEO of Vivoka, in a statement.
ID R&D Voice Biometrics works alongside automatic speech recognition offered through the Vivoka VDK. It also works with Vivoka's transcription capabilities to identify individual speakers in multi-speaker scenarios.
Vivoka has integrated voice biometrics into its Voice Development Kit.
The Voice Development Kit, Vivoka's tool for companies to create embedded voice interfaces, is moving to its second version for spring.
