European Union is testing AI-controlled border crossing

"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.

During the trials, which will be held in Hungary, Greece and Latvia, travelers will be offered to take a lie detector test using an online application and a web camera.

You might attempt to "act casual" at the border if you are carrying more than your allowance for duty-free, or far more seriously, are attempting to smuggle illegal contraband across country lines, but the pilot AI, dubbed iBorderCtrl, will detect the little gestures we can not but help to make when we are lying and under pressure.

The virtual border guard could ask, "What's in your suitcase?" and "If you open the suitcase and show me what is inside, will it confirm that your answers were true?".

According to CNN, the AI-powered virtual border guard will become more "skeptical" if it thinks the traveler is lying, after it asks questions about name, age, date of birth and the goal of their trip.

It's not easy policing the 700 million-plus people who enter the European Union every year; staff must uphold strict security protocols-checking travel documents and biometrics of each passenger-while avoiding traffic jams.

The system utilizes "micro-expressions of travelers to figure out if the interviewee is lying", according to the European Commission's website. "IBORDERCTRL's system will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit", project coordinator George Boultadakis explained.

In its current state, the pilot program is not expected to prevent anyone from crossing the border. The AI is capable of analyzing 38 micro-gestures and will score each response accordingly.

Travellers deemed low risk during the pre-screening stage will go through a short re-evaluation of their information for entry, while higher-risk passengers will undergo a more detailed check. If the computer says no, biometric information will be taken, such as face-matching, fingerprinting and palm vein reading. And there's a good reason for this: the technology is very much experimental. iBorderCtrl was just 76 percent accurate in early testing, and the team only expects to improve that to 85 percent.
