KnuVerse™ Solves Fundamental Noise, Equipment and Security/Authentication Challenges That Have Restrained Advances in Voice-machine Interfaces for More Than a Decade; KnuEdge™ Launches Today, Founded by World-renowned Innovator and Former NASA Chief Dan Goldin
San Diego, CA – June 6th, 2016 – KnuEdge™ Inc., a neural technology innovation company that launched today, introduced KnuVerse™: military-grade voice recognition and authentication technology that unlocks the potential for human-voice interfaces in next-generation computing. After five years in production in mission-critical battlefield conditions, KnuVerse solutions are now available to enterprises.
While the voice-assisted application market has exploded over the past five years due to the popularity of Siri, Cortana and Alexa, the aspirations of most development teams working on innovative voice applications are still on the drawing board. “Anyone who has tried to navigate a call center voice menu on a busy sidewalk or with kids in the room knows the frustrations around voice recognition and authentication,” said Nik Rouda, Senior Analyst at ESG. “KnuVerse has taken a novel, ground-up approach to real-time voice analytics, solving for ease-of-use, security, and real-world connections and noise problems.”
The Core Technology of KnuVerse
KnuVerse solutions are a boon for any developer or company seeking to innovate with voice-machine interfaces. The core technology includes patented authentication techniques, which now make the security of human voice biometrics usable in noisy, real-world environments. It is now possible to authenticate to computers, web/mobile apps and IoT devices with only a few words spoken into a microphone–in any language, in real-world noisy conditions.

“Although KnuVerse has just begun selling commercially, we already have a multimillion-dollar revenue stream, and have significant interest from Fortune 500 companies in the banking, healthcare and entertainment industries,” said Kate Dilligan, EVP of KnuVerse. “When our enterprise customers realize that they can instantly recognize and authenticate users on any device or platform without friction, the innovation wheels start turning. They stop worrying about fundamental tech issues and begin looking at higher-order opportunities such as improving the customer experience and establishing new competitive advantages.”

Before today’s official launch of KnuEdge, only a couple hundred people had heard about the company. By design, its small, geographically dispersed teams spent a decade in stealth mode developing two products to maturity: KnuVerse and KNUPATH™, computing processor technology enabling ground-breaking scalability, latency and workload performance in next-generation data centers (also announced today).
The company has more than $100 million of private investment and is founded by Dan Goldin, the world-renowned innovator who spent the past five decades inventing and delivering aerospace and technology products years ahead of the curve. He also led the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) throughout its renaissance in the 1990s. Goldin’s tenure at NASA reads like a Harvard Business Review case study in successful execution. For instance, as NASA chief, he guided the redesign and delivered the International Space Station, initiated bold robotic exploration of Mars and formed the Astrobiology Institute to better understand the origin, evolution and destiny of life in the universe. In addition, he put a record number of people into space without incident, all while reducing the agency’s planned budget by 33%.
“At KnuEdge, we are not in business to create incremental technology improvements on what already exists. Our mission is fundamental transformation,” said Goldin. “We were swinging for the fences from the very beginning, with intent to create technologies that will in essence alter how humans interact with machines, and enable next-generation computing capabilities ranging from machine learning to artificial intelligence.”
