Case Study: Most of Rwanda’s crop production comes from smallholder farms. The country’s agriculture officials have historically had insufficient data on where crops are cultivated or how much yield to expect — a hindrance for government’s future planning. Building on previous work with emerging technologies, machine learning, economics, and agriculture, the paper develops a new […]
We tested Europe’s new lie detector for travellers – and immediately triggered a false positive(LVL 4)
IBorderCtrl’s lie detection system was developed in England by researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University. It claims that its virtual cop can detect deception by picking on the micro gestures the person makes while answering questions. The university produced a study on 32 people showed 75% accuracy but their participant group was unbalanced in terms of […]
