AI Lie Detector Set To Start Screening EU Travelers

AI Lie Detector Set To Start Screening EU Travelers”

Travellers answer while facing a webcam, letting the system analyse and rate dozens of micro-gestures.

Lie detectors equipped with artificial intelligence are set to be tested at border points in Europe as part of an EU-funded project to combat crime and terrorism.

Trials of the system will go ahead in Hungary, Greece, and Latvia.

iBorderCtrol works on the AI to enable the faster border crossings for the travelers by having users fill out an online application and upload some of the documents such as their passport details and VISA before a virtual border guard takes over to ask some of the essential questions.

"We're employing existing and proven technologies - as well as novel ones - to empower border agents to increase the accuracy and efficiency of border checks".

The second step happens at the actual European Union border, travelers who have been identified as low risk will go through a short re-evaluation of their information for entry, while higher-risk passengers will undergo a more detailed check.

"Micro-expressions really do not say anything about whether someone is lying or not", he said.

"Border officials will use a hand-held device to automatically cross-check information, comparing the facial images captured during the pre-screening stage to passports and photos taken on previous border crossings", the European Commission's website states. If they don't, the traveler will be handed over to a human agent who will review the information.

At the end of the test, Schengen visitors will be marked either as low risk and be allowed to cross the border easily, or as high risk and thus be subjected to further investigation by actual border guards.

Early tests have had a 76% success rate but even so, the program is still considered highly experimental. "iBorderCtrl's system will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit".

Mr Boudakis told Express.co.uk the system was "currently under lab testing" with plans to begin deploying it next month at Hungarian, Greek and Latvian land borders, with the pilot scheme scheduled to last nine months.
