Wednesday August 29, 21:00 GMT, the documentary “A week without lying – The honesty experiment” will be broadcast on BBC2 as part of the Horizon series. Thanks to the wonderful people at Thoroughly Modern Media for squeezing all that science and insights in just one hour!
But don’t take our word for it that it is enjoyable. It was selected as one of the highlights to watch this week by the Sunday Times. Here are the media reports from AD, RTL Nieuws and Utrecht University website.
Thinking outside or inside the box? In the Cathexis project, we combine some of my research passions: analyzing human behavior and deception detection, all in a playful manner. But when technology meets live, interactive performance, many challenges need to be overcome. After residencies in Utrecht, Paris, Louvain-la-Neuve, Avignon, Brussels and Belgrade, we return to Sarajevo for the Mess festival in October this year.
Sophie van der Zee has been nominated for the New Scientist Talent Award 2018 for her research on deception detection. Local news channels Open Rotterdam interviewed us both, and made an item about it (in Dutch).
An experiment, a recording? Breaking new ground!
Fun day trying out various lie detection technologies with Sophie van der Zee and Paul Taylor, for a pilot on the Office Without Lies. Thanks to University of Twente’s Designlab and Jay, Simon and Imogen from Thoroughly Modern Media.
In the TV show Klaas Kan Alles on Dutch channel 3, Klaas van Kruistum challenges an expert. In the show that was aired last Saturday, he and crime journalist Kees van der Spek interviewed “suspect” Marjolein Keuning, a Dutch actress. The Xsens suit and our lie detection software came to the rescue. The episode can be watched here.
NOS op 3 (Dutch news) visited the University of Utrecht to record an item on our deception detection research. Please find the item here, with Sophie van der Zee interviewing reporter Onno Beukers, and me explaining our current study.
