Gyrfalcon Technology and Sensory deliver AI biometric access on edge devices
19 November 2019 15:24 GMT

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.

 
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.

 
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.”
