ID R&D Introduces Voice Clone Detection for Protection Against Gen AI-based Identity Fraud

The software processes a recording of speech and uses AI to determine whether it was spoken by a person or a voice clone. The covert use of a voice clone is a strong indicator of criminal intent.

Generative AI has substantially accelerated the advancement of audio deepfakes and voice clones. Today’s voice clones, created using just a short audio sample of a person’s voice, are virtually impossible for people to differentiate from their source. It is a powerful technology with many compelling applications in communications, healthcare, and productivity, particularly when combined with text-to-speech and conversational AI. But it can also be used to commit fraud and other crimes by impersonating people without their consent. These include account takeover, identity theft, misinformation, extortion, defamation, and appropriation of identity.
