IBM is utilizing two key technologies - speaker verification and conversational systems - to provide enhanced security for voice-based transactions. Our speaker verification technology is combined with user knowledge (i.e. passwords and personal information) elicited through a brief conversation. The combination of the two information sources - called a "Conversational Biometric" - greatly increases the security and reliability of voice-based transactions in a non-intrusive manner and provides a flexible framework for various authentication scenarios so as to maximize user convenience. A demonstration of Conversational Biometrics can be seen here. The Conversational Biometrics Groups is a part of the Human Language Technologies department at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.
