According to a technology expert, artificial intelligence-powered glasses will one day give humans the ability to discern if someone are lying to them or if they are attracted to them.
While it may sound like something out of a Black Mirror episode, Devin Liddell, Principal Futurist at Teague, insists it is the direction technology is heading.
According to Liddell, computer vision systems embedded into glasses will be able to detect subtleties and emotional cues that are imperceptible to the human eye.
He believes that the combination of augmented reality and AI will “transform the social landscape” for humans.
According to Liddell, the technology will allow users to detect “all kinds of physiological and psychological data about other people,” such as when someone are lying to us or if your date is truly interested in you.
He told the publication that the technology could be utilized for a variety of purposes, including: “Is the other person nervous or calm, interested or annoyed, etc.?” Is there anything that suggests they are lying? Are there any signs that they are drawn to the viewer?”
Liddell believes the glasses will be incredibly useful in many aspects of our existence, including politics, employment, and even relationships.
“Humans engage in many opportunities and advantage-seeking behaviors, and they will use these backchannel superpowers across a wide range of domains, from complex political negotiations to ordinary first dates,” he continued.
“Early use cases will feature scenarios in which only one participant has backchannel superpowers, resulting in grossly unequal playing fields, so that eventually, everyone will have them to some extent.”
Those who are the first to have some of the special wearable technology, according to Liddell, will have an unfair advantage over those who rely just on their intuition.
So much so that Liddell fears there may be efforts to outlaw the technology.
“There will be efforts to ban their use due to serious abuse cases,” he warned. “Think customs officials refusing entry to travelers with mental illnesses and unscrupulous employers weeding out less-healthy job applicants from their health insurance rolls before they can be hired.”
However, he believes that the prohibitions will fail because technology will become smaller and less expensive over time, making it more accessible to more people – and that some may even opt for’retinal and ear-canal implants’.
