Tying Nancy Grace period that maybe just -- could change your life or ever what progress.
What do you never have to remember all the passwords you need every day for everything you deal.
The company Nuance Communications has patented new technology that identifies users by their voice.
So only your voice that is the password you need that's.
Robert and it is the executive vice president general manager of nuances enterprise division.
I was very excited about the story that -- and calling you and trying to drag you on the show because I am one of those people.
That I have a lot of dumb password -- -- I'm admitting this on television you know and then I have the ones I can't remember that are better at this this seems like a tremendous breakthrough.
How did you come up with -- idea.
But we've been working on this for about ten years -- the people now know once they know that we're.
Specialists in speech recognition coming converting your your your speech and attacks.
Bomb but we've been working on identifying you by your voice and what the scientists discovered is that your voice is just like your fingerprint is unique to you.
And what we discovered is if you can apply that in a way that is more secure more convenient.
And actually saves.
Money and how people process passwords.
People use it -- and it's been it's it's been growing quite nicely.
Our viewers on Twitter had a lot of questions about the specifically.
What about voice imitators I mean all those people they hire in Hollywood -- -- sound alikes and they do -- dubbing afterwards on movies and somebody curses in the bigger play at a regular television they don't get the big stars back in the studio.
The depth that over again -- of people who their whole job is imitating other people's voice.
-- -- -- -- And actually it wouldn't it turns out that -- to the -- here it can sound very very familiar not exactly the same.
From an acoustical perspective we can actually detect the nuances pardon upon.
Of of your specific voice and and so it's very difficult -- it that way there are people who try to record your voice they'd have to record not only your voice but.
Your specific pass phrase such as my voice is my password.
If they do that we actually a technology that's called live this detection which I don't want to divulge what it is but -- always of making sure people can't defeat the system.
What other people that's what I have a cold and what if I lose my voice.
So it's the same as is what you might think if if you if you if you think of signing that your signature.
If you break -- army can't actually signed your signature that won't work so there is a point where if you dig -- get a cold or or your voice you lose your abortion can't speak.
Obviously there's limitations to that.
-- our customers do -- is they actually do what's called multi factor authentication.
They'll implement voice biometrics.
Along with your pen and password so you'll always be able to get through to your system.
It's just that if you add voice by -- actor so that's it's a lot more secure.
How should you invest in this what do you think is going to be your return on investment I mean the show's called monies yet again some of -- -- -- Well I I can't.
Tell you specifics I can't say that we've been working not for over ten years.
In the past three years we've -- made some breakthroughs on.
And the accuracy in the security of the system as well as a convenience.
And and and and that passed.
Two to three years we've.
Tripled the enrollments the voice prints that are used in the field to thirty million and and so.
I think the adoption -- showing you that the technology actually is working.
Ultimately it is it a whole lot safer than having just a regular password that you -- -- and how does it compare to something like you know fingerprint or Bob Grant.
That that you're -- other kinds of -- -- It's way better that it's way better than past reviews have at the top of the segment.
It's surprising how many people's passwords as let me end.
And there's there are passer and surveys that for a password yeah.
There's been surveys that show people use passwords that are easy to defeat.
It's obviously easy this year -- or have somebody see your your username and password.
So this is unique and so from that perspective it's it's far better from a fingerprint perspective were there and there's even -- out of work being done on -- retina scans for -- ally.
That require special hardware -- an expensive hardware your voice goes with you wherever you are we all have mobile phones we all.
Can speak until Michael found and so it's it's the right blend of security convenience and Anna and cost savings for the people that use it.
Robert thank you I like I can't wait to -- about a million passwords and I can't remember any about.
Thanks for coming on we absolutely appreciate -- for having so it is.
