British Group Unveils Facial Reading Lie-Detector
A British team of researchers led by Professor Hassan Ugail of Bradford University have demonstrated a new type of lie-detector.
The new system records subtle clues that people give off when lying, such as increased blood flow around the eyes, tiny lip movements or nose twitching. All of these bits of information are then fed into the computer that uses an algorithm based on the work of psychologists Paul Ekman and Walter Friesen, to give an educated guess as to whether the person being analyzed is lying.
According to a Financial Times report, the technology will most likely be used to screen passengers at airports, and in fact, the team is currently working with government and security officials to begin testing at an unspecified UK airport in the near future
