Smartphones Are The New Lie Detectors.

It may not be so easy to tell a little white lie in the future. Computer scientists at the University of Copenhagen are working on turning the smartphone into a lie detector.

I don’t think the technology is totally accurate yet, but scientists are working diligently to get the new algorithm to identify honesty and dishonesty. The results are determined by analyzing how you swipe or tap a smartphone. “Dishonest interactions often take longer and involve more hand movement than honest ones,” according to a research paper from the University of Copenhagen

The algorithm is called Veritaps. The university claims a green check mark is flashed when truthful statements are entered into a smartphone and notes doubtful information with a red question mark.

Will this replace the polygraph? I guess we will find out when it becomes a reality. Read more about this in CNET.
