New Tech Uses WiFi Blasts to Read a Subject’s Concealed Emotions from a Distance
What is any person’s natural defense to surveillance, and the feelings of being robbed of privacy and sanctity that accompany it? Silence, and taking measures to protect privacy.
A “poker face” may mean nothing if some new technology produced at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) actually works. A team of researchers say they created a system that can accurately read a person’s concealed emotions from a distance.
From sadness, to excitement, anger to happiness, they say its “EQ-Radio” is accurate 87% of the time at detecting people’s concealed emotions.
Personally it sounds far-fetched that it would successfully read a person’s emotions without being directly linked to a person’s pulse and body like a lie detector.
However, the researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are using regular WiFi signals that they bounce off a person to track their heart rates and reveal other info about the body that can apparently determine emotion. No skin touching censors, as used in lie detectors, are involved with the device
