How they describe themselves: Based in New York, ID R&D’s award-winning scientists and engineers focus on the science of biometrics to produce the most advanced and highest performing biometric technologies.  Our approach combines best-in-class multi-modal biometrics to transfer the authentication burden from the user to the technology, enabling a zero effort authentication experience.

Using the very latest in artificial intelligence methods, the biometric technologies we develop and deliver are voice biometrics, voice anti-spoofing, facial liveness, and keystroke behavioral biometrics.  Recent awards and recognitions include being a 2018 TechCrunch Top Pick, 2018 Microsoft AI Top 10, and inclusion in Gartner’s Market Guide for Authentication.

How they describe their product/innovation: SafeChat 2.0 is a mobile and web solution for frictionless, multi-modal biometric authentication in a conversational interface. Think of a chatbot for both voice and texting that is secure on every interaction through biometrics. No login.  No password. Zero effort for authentication! Users simply type or speak to communicate in the conversational interface. In the background, SafeChat analyzes voice, behavioral and facial biometric data, providing authentication in real-time and continuously. Embed biometrics in your existing conversational interface. If you don’t have one, start by easily adding biometrics to your existing applications.
