Vivoka adds ID R&D voice biometrics

IDVoice from ID R&D, a Mitek company, is now available in the latest version of the Vivoka Voice Development Kit (VDK), providing a simplified way for developers to build and test applications that benefit from advanced voice biometrics.

Vivoka’s user-friendly, graphical interface removes complexity with a single software voice development kit that includes all the technologies a developer might need to build a powerful, modern voice application. Vivoka is currently the only solution that comprises a complete range of embedded voice technologies from multiple providers, giving developers the ability to easily benchmark, develop and test their use cases. The specialized software development kit allows any company or developer to configure an offline voice solution composed of one or more advanced voice capabilities – all in one place.

ID R&D’s breakthrough voice biometric technology is highly accurate, fast, and small enough to run on a Neural Processing Unity (NPU), opening up new possibilities for emerging use cases. The robust product 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.

ID R&D won first place in the Short-duration Speaker Verification (SdSV) Challenge 2021, which tests speaker verification in the microphone channel. The company has also proven accuracy levels that meet the Android authentication guidelines (1:10000 accuracy).

“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 CEO. “It’s a natural fit and completely frictionless for users who don’t need to do anything other than speak their request 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 at Vivoka.

Today’s announcement builds on the two companies’ expertise. ID R&D Voice Biometrics works alongside automatic speech recognition (ASR) offered through the Vivoka VDK. It also works with Vivoka’s transcription capabilities to quickly identify individual speakers in multi-speaker scenarios.

The Vivoka Voice Development Kit 3.0 is available with a complete range of advanced voice capabilities for developers. The VDK offers unparalleled access to the voice ecosystem and currently powers thousands of products in fields such as Consumer Electronics, Robotics, Industry 4.0, Mobility, and Aerospace.
