Microsoft accepts ID R&D into IoT and AI Insider Labs program
ID R&D announced today that it has been accepted into Microsoft’s global IoT & AI Insider Labs program, a resource for companies to develop, prototype, and test IoT and AI solutions for market commercialization.
“Microsoft offers experience, ability, insight, and a reputation for being at the forefront of technological disruption since the beginning,” said Konstantin Simonchik, CTO of ID R&D. “That ID R&D will be able to work out of their state-of-the-art facilities as well as have access to Microsoft’s deep domain expertise is an honor for us and speaks to the commitment our firm places on delivering a peerless AI-based biometric solution.”
Microsoft has three Insider Labs located in the USA, China, and Germany. ID R&D will work in the Seattle lab with specific focus on its multi-modal biometric authentication solutions, including AI-enhanced features for further reducing user requirements for secure identification. The collaboration will also enable the company to launch a cloud service that developers can use to develop and prototype their own solutions incorporating ID R&D’s technology.
Last month Simonchik spoke with Biometric Update about how the company is developing biometric technologies that minimize the user experience without compromising on security.
