This paper describes the application of a backpropagation artificial neural network (ANN) for charting the behavioural state of previously unseen persons. In a simulated theft scenario participants stole or did not steal some money and were interviewed about the location of the money. A video of each interview was presented to an automatic system, which collected vectors containing nonverbal behaviour data. Each vector represented a participant’s nonverbal behaviour related to “deception” or… Expand
Measuring human comprehension from nonverbal behaviour using Artificial Neural Networks
The neural networks computer-based Silent Talker system has been trained and validated in the measurement of human comprehension using videotaped participant nonverbal behaviour from a Human Immunodeficiency Virus informed consent field study in Tanzania. Expand
FATHOM: A neural network-based non-verbal human comprehension detection system for learning environments
FATHOM's comprehension classifier artificial neural network was trained and validated in comprehension detection using the standard backpropagation algorithm, and results show that high and low comprehension states can be detected from learner's non-verbal behavioural cues with testing classification accuracies above 76%.

Application of Machine Learning in Deception Detection
The developed neurofuzzy model for classifying extracted verbal and nonverbal features as deceptive or truthful was compared with Support Vector Machine, K-Nearest Neighbour, and Decision Tree and recorded the best performance with the Nonverbal dataset. Expand
Airport artificial intelligence can detect deception: or am i lying?
Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, research has enveloped numerous areas within the psychological sciences as a means to increase the ability to spot potential threats. While airports took toExpand

This research aims to develop a neurofuzzy model for classifying extracted verbal and nonverbal features as deceptive or truthful using the dataset of Perez-Rosas and found that NeurofuzzY model work well on Nonverbal dataset to detect deception. Expand
Deception in the eyes of deceiver: A computer vision and machine learning based automated deception detection
For the first time, fine-grained level eyes and facial micro-movements are investigated to identify the distinctive features that provide significant clues for the automated deception detection. Expand
FATHOMing out interdisciplinary research transfer
The process of taking a working research prototype and deploying the system in a real working environment is described and the process of contract negotiation, global ethics and intellectual property rights are discussed. Expand
Head movement analysis in lie detection
The potential of head movement in lie detection was analyzed using a non-invasive technique that detects the head movement out of video by performing a frame-to-frame analysis on a color video stream. Expand
A neural network-based intelligent cognitive state recognizer for confidence-based e-learning system
An artificial neural network-based intelligent recognizer has been designed to identify the C beL state of the learner on the basis of his performance in a CBeL test and this recognizer is the major agent that facilitates the implementation of the proposed C BeL system. Expand
A hybrid model combining neural networks and decision tree for comprehension detection.
This paper investigates the use of a hybrid model comprising multiple artificial neural networks with a final C4.5 decision tree classifier to investigate the potential of explaining the classification decision through production rules and the significant tree size questions the rule transparency to a human.

Silent talker: a new computer-based system for the analysis of facial cues to deception
This paper presents the development of a computerised, non-invasive psychological profiling system, ‘Silent Talker’, for the analysis of non-verbal behaviour. Nonverbal signals hold rich informationExpand
EMPATH: Face, Emotion, and Gender Recognition Using Holons
The dimensionality of a set of 160 face images of 10 male and 10 female subjects is reduced from 4096 to 40 via an autoencoder network, and it is found that the networks tend to confuse more distant emotions than humans do. Expand
Invited article: Face, voice, and body in detecting deceit
Studies based on mean accuracy of a group of subjects suggest that most observers do no better than chance in detecting the lies of others. We argue that a case-by-case methodology, like that used inExpand
Human expression recognition from motion using a radial basis function network architecture
In this paper a radial basis function network architecture is developed that learns the correlation of facial feature motion patterns and human expressions. We describe a hierarchical approach whichExpand
Experiments on Learning by Back Propagation.
The learning procedure can discover appropriate weights in their kind of network, as well as determine an optimal schedule for varying the nonlinearity of the units during a search. Expand
Connectionist models of face processing: A survey
One advantage of these models over some nonconnectionist approaches is that analyzable features emerge naturally from image-based codes, and hence the problem of feature selection and segmentation from faces can be avoided. Expand

SEXNET: A Neural Network Identifies Sex From Human Faces
A neural network was trained to discriminate sex in human faces, and performed as well as humans on a set of 90 exemplars, and some SexNet errors mimicked those of humans. Expand
Tempering Backpropagation Networks: Not All Weights are Created Equal
This work suggests that backpropagation learning algorithms may be improved by utilizing the structural information instead of discarding it, and introduces a framework for "tempering" each weight accordingly, yielding hitherto unparalleled performance on the family relations benchmark, a deep multi-layer network.
