Post Magazine – Fraud & Lie Detectors
A decent scrap emerges from Daniel Dunkley’s feature on Voice Stress Analysis in the insurance industry, making this article one of those things you might not have wanted to read, but you’re pleased you eventually did.
After poring over the established issues surrounding market leader Digilog and the use of VSA by insurers so far, the story reports how several academics have incurred the wrath of Nemesysco – the provider of Digilog’s voice analysis engine – by criticising its validity.
Apparently, one such critic is Professor Anders Eriksson from Gothenburg who published a paper which was removed as Libellous by Nemesysco.
But this didn’t stop Prof Eriksson getting on the blower to Post Magazine to repeat his defamatory remarks, with this little beauty: “There is no validity at all in the technology itself…It doesn’t make any distinction between you, a dog or a bus”.
