Polygraphs and deception detection: past, present and AI-powered future?
In this event, we introduce the history of the polygraph (or ‘lie detector’ as it is commonly known), its current use, and the issues surrounding technological approaches for the detection of deception, such as ‘iBorderCtrl’ and emotion AI. We will hear from author and journalist, Amit Katwala, including lessons from his recent book about the polygraph’s early US history. Expert commentary will be provided by Emeritus Professor Don Grubin, forensic psychiatrist and polygraph test expert and provider, and Professor Jennifer Brown, chartered forensic and chartered occupational psychologist, Mannheim Centre for Criminology, LSE.

The event will be chaired by Marion Oswald, Senior Research Associate with the Alan Turing Institute AI Programme, and Associate Professor of Law, Northumbria University.
