True_You_FaceLines-1024x746

It is an old hat that machines know where we are, what we buy and how many steps a day
we have walked. The new machines want to know how we feel. Because where we are emotional,
we are all with ourselves; in our emotions our true self is revealed.Voice analysis, microexpression
evaluation, brain wave visualization are valid methods of affective computing to read the truth from
the body – which makes the latest software mirror-image lie detectors.

In their lecture performance, doublelucky productions put this development of
artificial intelligence back into the tradition of the polygraph to the medieval judgement of God
– and look into a future in which everyone carries a smart truth-finding machine
in their trouser pockets. And, yes: with the help of old film clips, the latest tec
trailers and a homemade app, they will tell you how you feel.
