Abstract:

This 5-year project conducted principally by University of Arizona, Florida State University, Michigan State University, and Air Force Institute of Technology, reports results of 1 theoretical development on a model of interactive deception, 2 laboratory and field testing to identify reliable indicators of deceit and variables that moderate those effects, 3 identification of cognitive biases that adversely impact human deception detection, 4 development of a prototype suite of tools - Agent99 - for automatically identifying linguistic, vocal and visual indicators of deceit, 5 development of a curriculum and computer-based system for delivering training in deception detection, and 6 field testing of the prototypes and training. Several tools have been implemented, and lessons learned provide important guidance for future development of deception detection tools and procedures.
