A webcam will then be used to answer questions issued by a "computer-animated border guard", that will ask questions in order to either elicit the truth - or lies.

The EU is spending nearly £4 million on the IBORDERCTRL project, which involves a total seven member states, including the United Kingdom, where scientists from Manchester Metropolitan University are developing the actual lie detector test.

The entire effort is being coordinated by European Dynamics Luxembourg, and the teams involved span Greece, Cyprus, the UK, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Germany, and Latvia.

iBorderCtrol works on the AI to enable the faster border crossings for the travelers by having users fill out an online application and upload some of the documents such as their passport details and VISA before a virtual border guard takes over to ask some of the essential questions.

"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". The EU has invested a considerable amount of money in the project, nearly $5 million.

The software will be equipped with "deception detection" which will analyses the micro-expressions of travellers to figure out if the interviewee is lying.

Then, when the traveler gets to the border, those flagged as low risk during the pre-screening stage will get a short re-evaluation, while "higher-risk passengers" will get a more "detailed" check. Travelers will have to answer in front of the camera, and the system will analyze and evaluate dozens of microdelivery. "IBORDERCTRL's system will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit", project coordinator George Boultadakis explained.

Hand-held devices will cross-check information, comparing facial images with passport photos. A previous iteration of the technology had a 76 percent success rate in early testing, but a representative of iBorderCtrl told New Scientist that they are confidant it can reach 85 percent.

Reportedly, the project uses artificial intelligence to speed up border-crossing travellers.
