DailyDirt: I Would Never Tell A Lie…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Wonder woman had a lasso that forced bad guys to tell the truth — which always seemed a bit ridiculous. But forcing people to tell the truth is an interesting area of research, and folks have made some progress over the years. Here are just a few quick links on some projects about lying.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

sounds familiar

“One [problem] is how to discover, against his will, what another human being is thinking… In so far as scientific research still continues, this is its subject matter. The scientist of today is… a mixture of psychologist and inquisitor, studying with real ordinary minuteness the meaning of facial expressions, gestures, and tones of voice, and testing the truth-producing effects of drugs, shock therapy, hypnosis, and physical torture…”
–George Orwell, 1984
