Job description

Voice control systems such as Alexa, Siri and Google Voice Assistant are widely utilized around the globe. Using these technologies provides convenience but at the same time the privacy of users is at risk. Audio data transmitted to a remote server must be protected to ensure the privacy of the users.

Within this bachelor thesis a secured voice control device will be designed, implemented and evaluated. This includes the necessary hardware and software components in the device and the integration of the device in a cloud system with support for a Speech-to-Text API.

The bachelor thesis may be structured in the following way:

  • Literature research phase: elaborate on similar systems, relevant technologies and software/hardware security
  • Concept phase: define a HW/SW concept for a modular, secured, extensible system
  • Implementation phase: design and implement the system
  • Evaluation phase: analyze the performance, scalability and security of the implemented system

Start: 01.07.2018
Work time: part- or full time

This position is subject to the collective agreement for workers and employees in the electrical and electronics industry. The salary for this position is EUR 1.380,-- gross p.m.(full-time basis) for Bachelor's students.

About Us

Part of your life. Part of tomorrow.

We make life easier, safer and greener - with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world - we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

Chip Card & Security (CCS) addresses the need for reliable, fit-for-purpose and easy-to-use security solutions in an increasingly connected world. The Internet of Things (IoT), which enables communication and data exchange among people, electronic devices and infrastructure, is paving the way for new, user-centric services. These services hinge on reliable digital identification of users and devices, which is why data and IT security are number-one priorities at all critical IoT edge points. This applies across the full spectrum from conventional smart card and ID applications such as SIM and payment cards, to embedded controllers in security applications. Examples of this include the eCall system for contacting emergency services, which is due to become mandatory in the EU in all new vehicles from March 2018 onwards. Hardware-based security components protect electric systems by ensuring that only authorized devices can connect. As a leader in security technologies with 30 years of experience and in-depth system competence, our expertise extends along the entire value chain - from consulting and design to system integration and complementary services.
