    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

New emotion detector can see when we’re lying

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 11:58 am

From the BBC: New emotion detector can see when we’re lying

From the article: “Traditional lie detection depends on the venerable polygraph, first developed in 1921, a much more invasive apparatus with a set of wires attached to the skin.

Later this year, though, they plan to deploy it in a UK airport, probably running alongside experienced immigration officers as they conduct security interviews.”

Yipe. I know a lot of guys who’d better hope their wives don’t get ahold of this thing…

But seriously, am I the only one creeped-out by the idea that some computer can make determinations as to my veracity? Who will fix the devastation of false-positives ?
