    An Eye-Scanning Lie Detector Is Forging a Dystopian Future

    https://tech.slashdot.org/story/18/1...stopian-future

    Sitting in front of a Converus EyeDetect station, it's impossible not to think of Blade Runner. In the 1982 sci-fi classic, Harrison Ford's rumpled detective identifies artificial humans using a steam-punk Voight-Kampff device that watches their eyes while they answer surreal questions. EyeDetect's questions are less philosophical, and the penalty for failure is less fatal (Ford's character would whip out a gun and shoot). But the basic idea is the same: By capturing imperceptible changes in a participant's eyes -- measuring things like pupil dilation and reaction time -- the device aims to sort deceptive humanoids from genuine ones.

    It claims to be, in short, a next-generation lie detector. Polygraph tests are a $2 billion industry in the US and, despite their inaccuracy, are widely used to screen candidates for government jobs. Released in 2014 by Converus, a Mark Cuban-funded startup, EyeDetect is pitched by its makers as a faster, cheaper, and more accurate alternative to the notoriously unreliable polygraph. By many measures, EyeDetect appears to be the future of lie detection -- and it's already being used by local and federal agencies to screen job applicants.
    Yet, there are still so many people that constantly call me "paranoid". How can I be if their goal is truly Enslavement of Humanity? They know it damn good and well. I doubt there are really very few in the know that are deluding themselves.

    What do you think? Would you just passively let them $#@!ing microchip you? How about we microchip the $#@!ing politicians and start putting tabs on them? Oh, now why wouldnt they want that if its okay for us?

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    The Elimination of Privacy is the Architecture of Genocide

    Belief, Money, and Violence are the three ways all people are controlled

    You are truly being paranoid. It is all about empathy and culture fit. Something you might not be familiar with.

    Im glad someone here understands what Sarcasm is!

    Thing is, the people that get rid of thousands of workers so they can afford another yacht are incapable of empathy. Then turn back around and Gayify everything as a form of Population Control, and sleep like babies! Perhaps we should invest in Pacifiers?

    The only lies that matter are your lies. Their lies definitely do not matter.

    Actually, he wouldn't. (That was sort of the whole point of the story ...)

    True, we are already there. Life expectancy for the US continues to drop. I am suspicious that the plan is partly Population Replacement, and a "Soft Kill" by letting whitey starve to death. If no guns are used, then they arent at fault, right?

    If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear, citizen.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
