It may sound like a gag from a television parody of secret agents as the Super-agene 86 or an Austin Powers movie, but it’s time for “Spectacles Voice Analysis.” And it’s not a laughing matter. The device provides an analysis of lie detection in real time inside glasses on whoever is speaking at the moment, says its manufacturer, the Israeli company Nemesysco, which developed technology for counter-terrorism and government customers. Theoretically then, may not be long before hearing the airport security personnel ask, “Are you planning to hijack this plane?”. And can tell immediately whether a passenger is a terrorist by analyzing his answer to that question directly.
The technology, developed by mathematician Amir Lieberman Nemesysco in Israel, for the army, claims to insurers and law enforcement, is being repackaged and re-focused to personal and corporate applications by V Entertainment (New York). Companies that use a wide range of applications such as counter-terrorism, law enforcement, insurance and verification of workers’ compensation are beginning to use variations of the software technology for glasses that is already available in a down-loadable PC program that can analyze conversations live or via telephone. “We’re actually developing two types of glasses – one for use in security and other commercial use,” Lieberman told ISRAEL21c. “A chip inside the glasses is able to read the frequency of the voice of the person you are speaking. The voice is analyzed through this chip with nine different types of voice analysis and there are lights that indicate if the person is lying.
