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….
The right algorithms….
“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….
“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.”

Lets 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.
