The Linux Foundation has created the Open Voice Network in partnership with Target, Microsoft, Veritone, Schwarz Gruppe, Wegmans Food Markets, and Deutsche Telekom.

The open source association will focus on promoting open standards for artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled voice assistance systems.

Linux Foundation's Mike Dolan said the network was a "proactive response to combating deep fakes in AI-based voice technology."

The foundation indicated the Open Voice Network will deliver "standards and usage guidelines for voice assistant systems that are trustworthy, inclusive and open," and offer guidance on voice-specific protection of user privacy and data security and the interoperability of voice assistants between platforms.
