The Virtual Lie Detector
New Scientist Magazine reports that the US Department of Defense plans to develop a lie detector that can be used without the subject knowing they are being assessed. In a call for proposals on a DoD website, contractors are being given until 13 January to suggest ways to develop the Remote Personnel Assessment (RPA).
The RPA will use microwave or laser beams reflected off a subject's skin to assess various physiological parameters without the need for wires or skin contacts.
To checkout the actual call for RPA proposals on the DoD website.
We look forward to the OpenSource Bluetooth web-based version which checks out whether virtual team members are exaggerating progress in team meetings.

Bioteams Books Reviews
