Liopa commences trials of AI-based LipSecure with established User Authentication and Identity Verification providers to provide enhanced anti-spoofing capabilities.
Liopa has received an Invest NI Grant for Research and Development, targeted towards a project to develop LipRead, a Visual Speech Recognition (VSR) product.
Belfast-based technology specialist Liopa has commercially launched the world’s first automated Lip Reader. The service will initially be used to prevent ‘spoofing’ in Facial Recognition systems where there is a threat of compromise from images or videos of the subject being presented by an imposter.
Liopa has secured $1million in funding – led by its initial backers, techstart NI, and QUBIS – which will enable it to commercialise the LipRead platform and actively market it for global use.
Belfast firm is building lip-reading tools to improve speech-controlled systems.
