Event Details

OCTAVE (Objective Control  for Talker Verification) is a project funded by the E.U. Horizon 2020 Programme, under Grant Agreement #647850, running from June 2015 to July 2017.    Twitter: @OCTAVE_H2020

The proliferation of smart services calls for unsupervised authentication at a distance.  Being natural, non-intrusive and readily compatible with smart and mobile devices, automatic speaker verification (ASV) is an appealing solution. Even so, today’s state-of-the-art ASV systems lack robustness to environmental variability and are vulnerable to spoofing. Concerns regarding interoperability, scalability and privacy also form barriers to exploitation. While embracing standards, in addition to a privacy and interoperability-by-design ethos, OCTAVE has integrated commercial-grade and new, hybrid ASV systems with the latest environmental robustness and anti-spoofing technologies to deliver a scalable, trusted biometric authentication service (TBAS). While simultaneously relieving end-users from the inconvenience of dealing with textual passwords, the OCTAVE platform reduces the economic and practical burdens related to password loss and recovery.

The workshop will showcase the OCTAVE platform and technologies to an audience of stakeholders and experts in ICT Security, ID Management and Voice Biometrics. The programme includes interlaced presentations delivered by select stakeholders and project representatives. Together, they will show how OCTAVE results meet industrial needs for secure authentication using voice biometrics. Next generation technologies to be presented include efficient and reliable presentation attack detection (PAD) for the protection of voice biometric systems from spoofing. 

Delegates will also enjoy an opportunity to experience and interact with the OCTAVE platform firsthand.

Sessions will be held in Italian or in English, with simultaneous translation.
