Nuance unveils new 'Lightning Engine' voice authentication tool

Wednesday 10 July 2019 | 14:56 CET | News
Nuance Communications has announced the imminent launch of a new AI system that combines voice biometrics and natural language understanding (NLU) to authenticate individuals within seconds of them speaking and deliver personalised automated responses. With the new tool, dubbed Nuance Lightning Engine, a single human command to a smart speaker, virtual assistant or IVR is enough for that system to understand who is talking and what it is they want in as quick as half a second, said the company.
