New emotion detector can see when we're lying

A sophisticated new camera system can detect lies just by watching our faces as we talk, experts say.

Quote:
Researchers say the system could be a powerful aid to security services.
Quote:
It successfully discriminates between truth and lies in about two-thirds of cases,
Ceiling cat help us!!

True. In fact women are even better, they can detect 4/3 of lies.

Errr....

Quote:
"So far, the team has only tested its lie detector on willing volunteers rather than in a real-life, high stakes situation. Later this year, though, they plan to deploy it in a UK airport, probably running alongside experienced immigration officers as they conduct security interviews. The algorithms can then be tested against the verdicts of these officers."
I won't hold my breath

And yet still they insist on asking "Does this dress make my arse look ginormous?" They want the truth? They can't handle the truth!

For a refreshing change, try answering that one with "No, Dear. It's the 8,000 calories per day that do it."

Seems way more reliable than the polygraph tests we have now (which, in case you don't know, have been deemed a pseudoscience). I'd hate to be called a liar just for having abnormal/nervous reactions.

Re: New emotion detector can see when we're lying

Women can pick up untruths quicker than any machine.
We're instinctive and we rely on voice pitch, body language or sometimes the way a sentence is simply written.
It's just a survival mechanism to get through life, when you don't have the presence and power and recognition that men have/receive
