This might catch Trump out
An article in Intercept* makes for worrying reading, for those who may wish to travel to the E.U. after Brexit. As nationals of a ‘third country’ we can assume that we will face more stringent border checks, but as this article reveals we may not like the kind of checks currently under appraisal. ‘Deception Detection’ is the name of the game—basically a lie detector test– using technology which monitors, e.g. your facial movements to see if you are telling the truth. The test could be applied in your own home before you travel, using your own computer’s built-in camera, or perhaps on your mobile phone. It sounds sinister and it is. If the technology works, why limit its use to border security?
