AI lie detector tests to get trial run at EU airports

"Artificial intelligence" lie detector programs will be tested on people arriving at airports in Hungary, Greece and Latvia, under a new, EU-funded pilot scheme created to partially automate the bloc's border control.

The programme, iBorderCtrl is in its initial phase and aims to promote faster border crossing for travelers with the help of AI.

The European Commission has thrown more than €4.5m (£4m, $5.1m) into iBorderCtrl, a self-described "intelligent control system" that analyzes answers given by travelers to a series of questions at border checkpoints, and their facial expressions, then highlights to agents those who it thinks are likely not telling the truth.

Trump Hints China Trade Moves for Argentina G20 After Xi Call
Neither leader specified any details of potential progress in their first known direct discussion in several months. If President Trump makes an agreement with President Xi, there is nobody above them to overturn it", he said.

iBorderCtrl will require travelers to upload pictures of their passport, visa, and proof of funds. The EU has invested a considerable amount of money in the project, nearly $5 million.

The answers to the questions will be analyzed by what the European Union says is an AI "deception detection" system that also studies the travelers' facial expressions for patterns consistent with people who are lying.

Travellers who have been flagged as low risk by the lie detector will go through a short re-evaluation of their information for entry.

Spotify begins testing Apple Watch app
Shares in the Swedish-based music group slid 5.7 percent to close at $141.16 after the company's 3rd quarter earnings report. Jeff Wlodarczak of Pivotal Research said he remained positive on Spotify despite the "modest reduction" in the outlook.

The AI, however, intends to take over this role and will ask questions such as those relating to items in a suitcase, reading a total of 38 micro-gestures in the process in order to issue a risk score to every would-be traveler. "IBORDERCTRL's system will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit", project coordinator George Boultadakis explained.

During the pilot, system judgements will not be used to deny border crossings, according to the report. "After the traveler's documents have been reassessed, and fingerprinting, palm vein scanning and face matching have been carried out, the potential risk posed by the traveler will be recalculated".

The trials will begin in lab testing conditions before real-world scenario tests start.

BlizzCon 2018: Destiny 2 PC Free for Battle.net Users
All you have to do is download the Blizzard app (in case you haven't installed it), head over at Destiny 2 and get your free copy. There's no doubting how much the Forsaken and 2.0 Update enhanced this title since its launch previous year .

But the technology has been tested in its current form on only 32 people, and scientists behind the project are hoping to achieve an 85% success rate.
