My Voice Is My Password: Dr. Clive Summerfield, CTO of Auraya, at TEDxCanberra

TEDx­Can­berra brings ideas, the­atre, thinkers, inno­va­tors and enjoy­ment to the region with some of Can­berra and Australia’s most inter­est­ing pre­sen­ters tak­ing the stage to deliver their “ideas worth spreading”. ArmorVox CEO and Founder, Clive Summerfield, was selected to present at TEDxCanberra 2012. Presentations at the event centered around the theme “An Opti­mistic Chal­lenge”.

Describ­ing him­self as a speech tech­no­logy pion­eer, for over 20 years Clive has been spear­head­ing the research, devel­op­ment, and com­mer­cial­isa­tion of speech tech­no­lo­gies in Aus­tralia and around the world.

In this audi­ence-sub­mit­ted talk from TEDx­Can­ber­ra 2012, tech­no­lo­gist, Clive Sum­mer­field gives us a brief look into the use of voice bio­met­rics as a mech­an­ism for trans­ac­tion secur­ity. More unique than a fin­ger­print, your voice is pos­sibly the best cur­rent solu­tion to the prob­lem of too many pass­words.

Start­ing in 1990 with the found­a­tion of his first com­pany, Syr­inx Speech Sys­tems, Clive was respons­ible for some of the first deploy­ments of tele­phone speech recog­ni­tion in Aus­tralia and the USA with deploy­ments in gam­ing, tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions and fin­an­cial ser­vices. In 2003, Clive turned his atten­tion to voice bio­met­rics, a tech­no­logy for authen­tic­at­ing iden­tity from voice sig­nal ana­lys­is.

Ini­tially, work­ing as a con­sult­ant assist­ing gov­ern­ments, banks and fin­an­cial ser­vices firms util­ise the tech­no­logy to pro­tect again­st iden­tity theft and fraud, Clive has gone on to develop Armor­Vox, an advanced voice bio­met­ric tech­no­logy developed in Aus­tralia that is at the heart of secur­ity solu­tions used around the world to secure bank­ing, gov­ern­ment and busi­ness ser­vices.
