French Firm, Nijta, to Enhance AI Voice Privacy Protection

French AI Protection

A French company is revolutionizing voice privacy protection technology within the AI sphere. Highlighting concerns that voice recordings could unintentionally reveal essential personal details, the firm is developing groundbreaking voice privacy measures. This initiative, intending to thwart unsanctioned exposure of personal information through voice recordings, supports the importance of thorough voice data management in the modern tech world.

The Lille-based firm originated with the goal of assisting doctoral entrepreneurs. It’s seen significant growth, notably accumulating €2 million in funding from several sources, including a French deep tech venture capital fund and Finovam Gestion, an investment firm also based in Lille.

Given Europe’s strict data privacy laws, the company primarily operates across the continent. Their AI-based voice anonymization system services multiple sectors like healthcare, defense and education. The system is essential in scenarios requiring privacy, such as managing emergency medical calls or providing pronunciation feedback to students.

The company’s unique selling point is its development of content that contains a watermark, symbolizing the everlasting nature of their voice protection. With an increasing number of tech-savvy companies becoming aware of potential penalties for inadequate voice privacy knowledge, the company plans to expand into the B2C market. Extraordinary emphasis is placed on bringing their unique technology to everyday consumers and implementing extensive educational resources that unravel the complexities of voice protection.

The company currently boasts a team of seven employees, with plans to expand to a ten-strong team by June this year. It is also receiving support from Business France to help cover the costs of overseas expansion. The company has expressed gratitude for its Lille location, stating it offers a suitable and conducive business environment, despite not being in the French capital, Paris.
