Gyrfalcon Technology and Sensory Deliver Enhanced AI Biometric Access on Edge Devices

November 8, 2019

GTI AI Acceleration Boosts Performance of Sensory’s TrulySecure Biometrics AI by 4X

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — AI accelerator chip and technology provider Gyrfalcon Technology Inc. today announced a partnership with AI solution provider Sensory to deliver low latency, high reliability embedded, machine learning capabilities on edge devices. Utilizing Sensory’s larger, higher-performance TrulySecure biometric AI models, Gyrfalcon’s AI acceleration technology increases biometric recognition performance by a factor of at least 4 to 8 times, providing users accurate, instant verification or authentication.

The right accelerators….
Since the development of GTI’s first Edge AI chip in 2017, the company has become synonymous with high performance, energy efficient AI acceleration designed for cost sensitive mass market devices. Since its launch, the company has brought to production three other neural network acceleration technologies, including the Lightspeeur® 2803S AI acceleration processor that provides the industry benchmark of 24 TOPS/W for high performance at low power. Customers have been designing GTI AI Accelerator chips into their edge AI devices, and earlier in October LG announced using one in the new Q70 Smartphone to enable premium image and video features at an affordable price point.

The right algorithms….
Sensory is focused on improving user experiences through embedded machine learning technologies such as voice, vision and natural language processing. The company pioneered using neural network approaches for embedded speech recognition for consumer electronics with a well-engineered and patented codebase that has shipped in over 2 billion consumer products. Sensory has recently perfected an algorithm that greatly benefits from the low latency and high reliability that can be harnessed on the GTI AI Accelerator chip portfolio, with an implementation that can recognize legitimate user faces with the highest levels of accuracy.

“Sensory’s face and voice biometrics have been implemented in many dozens of products that have shipped in billion-plus unit quantities. We have had lots of real-world feedback and a key focus for improving our TrulySecure technology has been delivering faster performance on lower cost hardware,” said Todd Mozer, Sensory’s CEO. “Our TrulySecure solution can run up to four times faster and provide a larger, more accurate model thanks to GTI’s AI accelerator chip.”

The right partnership….
Together the companies accelerate innovation and time to market for customers wanting world-class edge AI capabilities that differentiate new products. Some customers are new to AI, and this partnership will help those customers exploit AI on new device projects. Other companies have some AI experience, but need to upgrade AI accelerators, improve designs or add new capabilities.

“Working with customers, we’ve learned that AI implementations are optimized best when companies bring ‘best-in-breed’ solutions together,” said Kimble Dong, co-founder and CEO of Gyrfalcon Technology Inc. “Our accelerator chips enable great design choices for device makers, and partners like Sensory leverage the chips in ways that delight customers with the convenience of fast access combined with peace-of-mind of reliable biometric security.”

Sensory Joins the FIDO Alliance to Progress the State of Biometric Authentication

April 6, 2015

FIDO Alliance Member LogoLets face it, 20 years ago passwords made sense and were an easy and somewhat secure way for keeping our private stuff private. But today, as a result of countless cyber attacks on the public, minimum password requirements vastly skew from site to site, forcing many people to remember upwards of 20 (some highly complex) passwords. Thankfully, better methods for identity authentication exist, and an organization called the FIDO Alliance is working with numerous players in the space, Sensory being one of them, to change the nature of online authentication by defining an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that reduce the reliance on passwords.

As many of you already know, Sensory is a leading provider of deep learning face and voice recognition biometric solutions, and we believe that with solutions like TrulySecure, your face or voice alone can serve as a very accurate method for identity authentication, and when combined, offers the strongest level of security feasible. We have learned a great deal about how to utilize deep learning principles for biometric authentication and are working with the FIDO Alliance to have our solutions FIDO-Certified, which will enable us to offer them to customers of end-to-end FIDO solutions.

The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization nominally formed in July 2012 to address the lack of interoperability among strong authentication devices as well as the problems users face with creating and remembering multiple usernames and passwords. The FIDO Alliance plans to change the nature of authentication by developing specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that supplant reliance on passwords to securely authenticate users of online services. This new standard for security devices and browser plugins will allow any website or cloud application to interface with a broad variety of existing and future FIDO-enabled devices that the user has for online security.
