In the United States, nearly 10,000 people are wrongly convicted of crimes each year. With advancements in brain imaging and the possibility of integrating deep brain sensing into lie detector technologies, we could transform our legal system by enabling noninvasive “truth finding” technologies — helping free those wrongfully convicted and identify the actual culprits. Such technologies would also revolutionize the intelligence fields and defense strategies by facilitating noninvasive interrogation techniques.
The winning team will develop a noninvasive, brain-sensing lie detector test that demonstrates 100 percent accuracy on a test panel of 100 individuals. Bonus points will be awarded to teams that demonstrate additional mind-reading capabilities.
