how facial software can identify liars
surveillance cameras at airports could be used to identify passengers who are not telling the truth, helping better identify terrorists and drug-smugglers while minimising instances of racial profiling.see related should we be worried about artificial intelligence?facebook to expand artificial intelligence to help prevent suicidethe artificial-intelligence programme was developed by a team of computer scientists at the university of rochester, new york, using crowdsourcing technology to build the largest public data resource of liars’ facial expressions.researchers used a machine-learning algorithm to analyse over 1.3 million frames of one-to-one interactions interactions.among the most common traits associated with lying identified by the programme was a high-intensity version of the so-called duchenne smile, in which people effectively smile with their eyes. another surprising finding was that honest people would contract their eyes, but not smile with their mouths.even highly-trained immigration officers often struggled to assess whether someone is lying, deliberately concealing something or just nervous.however, existing lie-detector technology is “controversial and a camera-based system that could be more widely used would be even more so”, says the times, “especially if it found its way into courtrooms, offices and schools”.

why cockroach milk is the ultimate ‘superfood’
forget oat, soy or almond milk… one day, you may be able to enjoy a cockroach milk latte.social media lit up on tuesday night when marie claire reshared an article first published in august 2016 claiming that cockroach milk was the next big superfood trend.but how to you go about milking a cockroach? put the image of a three-legged stool out of your mind, because the “milk” is actually a protein-dense fluid produced by the female pacific beetle cockroach.the roach, native to hawaii, is among the handful of insects which give birth to live young rather than laying eggs, npr explains.as the embryos grow inside her, “she feeds them a pale, yellow liquid milk’ from her brood sack”.admittedly, it’s not the most mouth-watering prospect. perhaps the washington post’s description can win you over: “slice open an embryonic roach under a microscope, and the crystals spill out in a shower of nutrient-dense glitter.”so far, so unappetising. but scientists say the hyper-nutritious fluid is the ultimate superfood.in fact, “experiments suggest that cockroach milk is among the most nutritious and highly caloric substances on the planet”, the post reports.cockroach milk contains four times as much protein as cow's milk, says marie claire, as well as “essential amino acids that promote cell growth, lipids that keep our bodies healthy, and sugars that fuel energy”.unsurprisingly, it was a hard sell on twitter:the difficulty of harvesting cockroach milk means we sho...
