Our Drive – To be the best in Human Verification products that solve real challenges. We’ve only been around since 2016, but our team has decades of combined experience in biometrics and security. Companies specializing in biometric solutions deploy our core voice, face, and behavioral biometrics in the field. Major financial institutions on four continents use our software and multiple companies are engaging us to bring our industry-leading biometric technology into their custom hardware.

Our company was founded from a team of professionals with decades of experience in the biometric field both on the business side and scientific side. ID R&D's management is built from award-winning professionals that utilize their vast experience to create new and exciting capabilities.

Our Vision – No Driver’s License Necessary! When you greet a friend, you don’t ask to see a driver’s license and get the last four digits of a social security number to confirm your friend’s identity. You know your friend from how they look, speak and act. We believe the same should be true with the human to machine interfaces. At ID R&D, we bring that vision to reality.

Our research focuses on:

- Face and Voice Biometrics using Artificial Intelligence, including Deep Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks

- New inventions such as our patented p-vector algorithms and optimized x-vector algorithms for feature extraction

- Anti-spoofing to protect voice and face biometrics from fraud attacks
