Abstract

We propose to run 3 experiments to refine and utilize measures of oculomotor activity and pupil diameter change to assess an individual's malicious or deceptive intent. We also propose to concurrently develop the software and determine the hardware necessary for online, real-time assessment of malintent based on prior research results and the results of the proposed experiments. In addition to oculomotor and pupil activity, we plan on collecting other physiological measures (e.g. electrodermal activity, respiration, cardiovascular measures) with the intent of developing a broader base of measures allowing for assessment of malicious or deceptive intent. Experiments will be conducted within the constraints imposed by the DHS Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) environment. The focus is on measures that can be recorded unobtrusively (without the attachment of sensors) and that can provide immediate feedback.
