Empty courtroom

Sometimes, it’s hard to say what makes you think someone is lying to you. Was it a slight flick of the eyelid, an almost imperceptible tremor of the lip, an ever-so-slight flush of the face? But when there’s more at stake than the result of a little white lie—like the wrong person begin convicted of a crime—you have to rely on more than a perception. Upping the lie-detecting ante, a research group tested a computer vision application on videos of truth-tellers and liars on the stand in the courtroom to see how well it could tell when a person was or wasn’t lying, and it was accurate nearly 90 percent of the time—beating humans significantly at the task, though, it’s probably important to mention that the video was tested on actors.

Patent approval can be a drawn-out process, particularly if your patent gets denied. When that happens, there’s a very long, very expensive process ahead for appeals. But if you could predict the likelihood of examiners’ reversal decisions or likelihood overturn of rejections, it could make the process so much easier. This AI tool essentially predicts when you should give up the fight, when you should appeal beyond your examiner, and what arguments you should use if you continue the fight.
