New Software from Univeristy of Michigan, is 75% accurate in cathing liars.

Think you’re good at catching people in a lie? You might be, but you’re probably not as good as a computer. Especially not one running this lie-detecting software developed by researchers at the University of Michigan, who studied hours and hours of footage from high-stakes court cases in order to build a tool that can determine whether or not someone’s pants should be combusting.

 
Better than a polygraph, the new software doesn’t actually need to measure a subject’s pulse, breathing rate, or otherwise touch them at all in order to catch a liar in the act. Rather, the speaker’s words and gestures are analyzed to measure their truthfulness (or the lack thereof).
 
In initial experiments, the University of Michigan software was significantly more accurate in identifying deception than were humans — in fact, it was 75 percent accurate in finding the liars, whereas humans were right only 50 percent of the time.
 
So how did they do it?
 
After poring over 120 video clips from real trials, the researchers found that the people who were lying had a number of distinctive tells. They moved their hands more, scowled or grimaced, said “um” more frequently, and attempted to create a sense of distance between themselves and their alleged crime or civil misbehavior by using words like “he” or “she” rather than “I” or “we.” Even more interesting, liars tended to make a greater effort at sounding sure of themselves — not only would they feign confidence, but they would also look the questioner in the eye, perhaps attempting to establish believability.

These findings, to some degree, seem contrary to previous claims (and even common sense), that would suggest that liars tend to look away or appear uncertain.
 
Researchers attribute the newness of their results to the real-life aspect of their experiments, relying on actual media coverage from genuine settings, rather than trying to recreate an artificial environment. “In laboratory experiments, it’s difficult to create a setting that motivates people to truly lie. The stakes are not high enough,” said Rada Mihalcea, a professor of computer science and engineering at UM-Flint. “We can offer a reward if people can lie well — pay them to convince another person that something false is true. But in the real world there is true motivation to deceive.”
 
Of course, it should be noted that the researchers determined truthfulness by comparing testimony to the ultimate verdict in the trials (so any erroneous verdicts would correspondingly weaken the study results).
 
But still, the research provides a brand new way of actually looking at truthfulness.
 
In order to further improve their software, Mihai Burzo, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at UM-Flint who co-led the study, noted that the team would be “integrating physiological parameters such as heart rate, respiration rate and body temperature fluctuations, all gathered with non-invasive thermal imaging.” This, the team hopes, will have huge implications on a number of different industries beyond law — mental health, security, and a number of other fields could be affected by this new-found ability to better determine honesty.

TL:DR, Wors and gestures over bodily functions to determine the truth. 

 

#Michgan Hype, maybe now more crime can get solved over here in the D.

75% is way to low to be used as any form of evidence in court. Traditional polygraphs are bad enough and if this was widely used people could easily learn to trick it.

generally they aren't used to convict, just enough to get a warrant or such.

Now, can we please use this on politicians? Not trying to start anything, but I'd like to see if Donald Trump is as honest as people say...

 

(Assuming this is reliable when not under laboratory conditions.)

Why is the God of Hyperdeath SO...DARN...CUTE!?

 

Also, if anyone has their mind corrupted by an anthropomorphic black latex bat, please let me know. I would like to join you.

still pretty useless against sociopaths who can manipulate human emotions pretty well.

Sociopaths are so damn interesting.  The hyper-intelligent ones can understand emotion, and they can just turn it off and play with it at their own will.  It's such an incredible thing.

I know what he meant, but I've been taught not to use contractions like that in thread titles.

I've seen longer titles... but enough about that.

 

75% isn't enough. As mentioned before, sociopaths can still manipulate it.

But humans are too un-reliable. One slip-up could also just be an itch or spasm, or even simple nervousness from being around cops. 

Also, 75% is not good considering a baseline 50% from random selection.

Not just sociopaths but 1 in 4 people. (or 1 in 4 lies, this isn't made clear).

Are you referring to the need for real-word trials?

They can be so calm so it really doesn't matter. If they have fine control over their emotions, they can easily bypass systems like this and have with the polygraph (which isn't even a fantastic system in the first place).

doesn't work on politicians since they rarely lie and instead say something meaningless but sounds good
