In a recent article, reporter Audrey McNamara, has revealed that due to leaks coming out of the administration, President Trump wants to submit all staff to polygraphs. Top staffers have convinced him, for now, to stay away from such a plan. However, Trump seems to be attached to it and continues to bring it up as a proposed method of closing loose lips.
Polygraph Testing Takes Time
Polygraph, an effective and well-established means of lie detection in the US, may present a few hiccups where this plan is concerned. On a large scale, such a method could prove arduous and costly. A well-executed polygraph test would take at least 45 minutes to 2 hours. Done one at a time, that could be quite taxing on the polygrapher, not to mention how slow the entire process would be.
EyeDetect, a new form of lie detection, could solve a few of these issues. It is a computerized test that is very efficient and methodical. There would not be a declining quality as the tests progressed. And while it still requires a proctor, one person can easily proctor three tests at the same time. Also, since it is scored by a computer algorithm, proctoring a test is a much simpler process than becoming a polygrapher, who must undergo extensive training.
Therefore, with EyeDetect, President Trump would be able to test more staffers in a shorter amount of time and have the quality remain the same from test to test. Just knowing that they’d have to submit to easily administered lie detection tests periodically, some tongues might be less inclined to wag when they might previously have been inclined to do so.
