EU Tightens Borders With New Intelligent Two-Step System

AI ‘lie detector’ test to scrutinize travelers’ faces for certain EU border checkpoints

If successful, the system iBorderCtrl will be implemented in all the border of the European Union.

It's part of an EU-funded experimental system called iBorderCtrl.

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 objective of their trip.

Travelers to Hungary, Latvia, and Greece will be given a lie detector test-conducted by computer-animated border agent. The EU has invested a considerable amount of money in the project, nearly $5 million.

The AI, however, intends to take over this role and will ask questions such as those relating to items in a suitcase, reading a total of 38 micro-gestures in the process in order to issue a risk score to every would-be traveler.

"We're employing existing and proven technologies - as well as novel ones - to empower border agents to increase the accuracy and efficiency of border checks, ' says project coordinator George Boultadakis of European Dynamics in Luxembourg".

The European Commission thinks that it will provide a "unique approach to "deception detection" analyses the micro-expressions of travelers to figure out if the interviewee is lying".

Nick Mullens: "It was my opportunity to prove that I can play"
Dekoda Watson had 1 1/2 sacks in his first game of the season after getting activated from IR earlier in the day. Before the injury, Mostert had rushed for 86 yards in seven carries, including a 52-yard touchdown.

Once at the border, folks flagged as low risk go through a short re-evaluation before entry; higher-risk passengers undergo a more detailed check.

Hand-held devices will cross-check information, comparing facial images with passport photos.

Only after possible risks have been recalculated does a human border guard take over from the automated system.

If the AI suspects that the traveler is lying, then they will be going to under biometric information and will be passed on to a human agent who will then go to their review their application and make an amended decision.

Prelaunch experiments with an older system had a success rate of around 75 per cent, which the team behind iBorderCtrl believes is because its tests were done with volunteers who had been asked to lie.

During the pilot, system judgements will not be used to deny border crossings, according to the report.
