2009 (English)In: Fonetik 2009 / [ed] Peter Branderud & Hartmut Traunmüller, Stockholm: Universitetsservice US-AB , 2009, 220-225 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The new speech-based lie-detection LVA-technology is being used in some countries to screen applicants, passengers or customers in areas like security, medicine, technology and risk management (anti-fraud). However, a scientific evaluation of this technology and of the principles on which it relies indicates, not surprisingly, that it is neither valid nor reliable. This article presents a scientific analysis of this LVA-technology and demonstrates that it simply cannot work.
