““The polygraph is ideal for crime-specific incidents. But because of cost, invasiveness, training and upkeep, it can’t be used on a large scale. With EyeDetect, those costs can be reduced significantly. It’s non-invasive, quick, and results are immediate. It helps companies hire and keep honest people.”
–Former program manager at the U.S. Dept. of State
What is EyeDetect?
EyeDetect is a screening solution for job applicants, employees, parolees, law enforcement, and immigrants/refugees developed to protect organizations from corruption and crime. Corruption is a multibillion-dollar worldwide problem.
Private companies, government agencies, and society alike are harmed when employees or others commit theft, participate in bribery, or other criminal activities, including acts of terror.
How does EyeDetect work?
The human body responds in many ways to the stress of deception; the greater the consequences of the lie, the greater the stress.
EyeDetect’s uniquely measures bio-cognitive responses, such as changes in pupil diameter, eye movement, eye blinks, and fixations. These changes reflect stress and cognitive effort and are measured with a precision optical scanner.
Fast and Accurate
In validation trials, EyeDetect classified truthful and deceptive examinees with 85% accuracy. An EyeDetect test takes about 30 minutes. Results are ready within 10 minutes.
This level of performance in such a short, non-intrusive session is unprecedented in the field of lie detection.
Nonintrusive, Easy to Use
EyeDetect is standardized and automated. Examinees receive brief instructions, are seated with a chinrest in front of a computer and then calibrated to an optical scanner. They respond to simple true or false questions.
The computer administers the test and automatically assesses the likelihood that the person was truthful or deceptive.
All organizations are concerned about budget. For that reason, EyeDetect tests are priced economically. Since the test is nearly fully automated, a test proctor can be trained in 2 hours to administer as many as 10 to 12 tests per day per EyeDetect Station or up to 40 a day with four Stations.
Lying is more cognitively demanding than telling the truth.
Cognitive resources are needed to inhibit the truth, fabricate the lie, and maintain its consistency, coherence, and believability over time.
In short, it is more difficult to lie than to tell the truth. The eyes don’t lie.
