Sensory Updates TrulySecure
Sensory earlier this month updated its TrulySecure face and voice biometric fusion platform to recognize users while wearing masks and accurately detect coughs and sneezes.
By combining both face and voice into one software development kit, developers can leverage both biometrics to address real-world challenges, such as face masks or noisy environments. When faces are partially obstructed, the voice biometric provides the extra confidence needed to enable secure access. Alternatively, when used in a noisy environment, such as a restaurant or sporting event, the voice biometric is enhanced with a facial recognition score.
"In unprecedented times like these, device manufacturers and app developers are being challenged to find new ways to keep people safe and secure," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory, in a statement. "TrulySecure does just that, allowing apps and devices to recognize and authenticate users in all conditions, even when wearing masks, thus eliminating the need for people to touch their face or remove their masks when in public. But we're taking things a step further by updating the Sound ID component of TrulySecure to recognize certain noises that can be indicative of users being sick or around people who are sick."
Since early 2019, Sound ID has been a feature within the TrulySecure suite of AI solutions. Sensory has now applied its expertise with deep learning model training to include cough and sneeze detection to help business owners track the health of their employees, or cities generate health data statistics. At the personal level, smartphones and wearables can be used to track the health of users and even alert them when their cough and sneeze count crosses a certain threshold.
