Communication In The Near Future...

Recommended Posts

See below for what prompted this.

So, let's see, wealthier people start talking to others all the time on video phones, running the conversations through analytical tools capable of detecting all sorts of things, lies, inventions, half-truths especially when combined with the programmes that measure variations in the human voice to detect lies etc.

How will anyone get away with anything?

Why didn't we have this when Blair arrived in the 90s?

Computer better than a human at telling if you're faking it

A computer-vision system able to detect false expressions of pain 30 percent more accurately than humans has been developed. Authors of the study, titled Automatic Decoding of Deceptive Pain Expressions, believe the technology has the potential for detecting other misleading behaviors and could be applied in areas including homeland security, recruitment, medicine and law.

“As with causes of pain, these scenarios also generate strong emotions, along with attempts to minimize, mask, and fake such emotions, which may involve dual control of the face,” said Marian Bartlett, research professor at University of California San Diego’s Institute for Neural Computation, and lead author of the study. “In addition, our computer-vision system can be applied to detect states in which the human face may provide important clues as to health, physiology, emotion, or thought, such as drivers’ expressions of sleepiness, students’ expressions of attention and comprehension of lectures, or responses to treatment of affective disorders.”

The joint study, by researchers at the University of California and the University of Toronto, found that humans could not discern real from faked expressions of pain better than random chance. Even after being told what signs to watch out for, people could still only manage to spot the fake 55 percent of the time. Meanwhile, the computer was correct 85 percent of the time.

“The computer system managed to detect distinctive dynamic features of facial expressions that people missed,” Prof Bartlett said. “Human observers just aren’t very good at telling real from faked expressions of pain.”

The study found the single most predictive feature of falsified expressions of pain is the mouth, specifically how wide and how frequently it opens. It was observed that when you are faking pain your mouth opens with less variation than when you are in real pain.

“In highly social species such as humans, faces have evolved to convey rich information including expressions of emotion and pain,” said senior author Kang Lee, professor at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study at the University of Toronto. “Because of the way our brains are built, people can simulate emotions they’re not actually experiencing, so successfully that they fool other people. The computer is much better at spotting the subtle differences between involuntary and voluntary facial movements. By revealing the dynamics of facial action through machine vision systems, our approach has the potential to elucidate ‘behavioral fingerprints’ of the neural-control systems involved in emotional signaling.”

Next the researchers plan to explore if a lack of variation in facial expressions is a feature of misleading behavior in general. Their work is published in the journal Current Biology.

along the same lines, check this amazing new revelatory video amplification technology from MIT:

if you want to, you can upload your videos for free and have them amplified.

how long before this kind of processing is available in real-time?

Women already claim to know what men are thinking so the technology is not needed.

For all our regular frequenters of dating websites, these kind of technologies should manage to filter out the BPD loonies in the future.

Not sure what they'll all do though! (if denied access to their victims via POF etc, I mean - hopefully it won't lead to an increase in the murder rate!)

Makes me wonder of they'll be able to run an org@sm through a computer to see if it's faked. :unsure:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/tools-in-the-toolbox-women-fake-orgasms-to-increase-their-own-arousal-say-scientists-9217209.html

Four motives formed the Faking Orgasm Scale for Women, and were as follows: altruistic deceit (faking it out of concern for a partner's feelings, fear and insecurity (faking it to avoid negative emotions associated with the sexual experience), elevated arousal (attempting to increase one's own arousal through faking orgasm), and sexual adjournment (faking orgasm to end sex).

The team found that women were more likely to fake orgasms to turn themselves on, rather than to end sex.

But the most common reason for faking an orgasm was altruism, with women reporting they did not want to hurt their sexual partner’s feelings.

Read this today in the paper.

We can always tell, and when my tongue's really aching I am grateful :-)

Get a slim woman with very flexible hips, it removes this problem which is largely an access issue. It's the only characteristic I wish all women had, otherwise variety is the spice etc....
