Lie to me

Sean Force and Nicholas Murray interview Merrik Saunders and Roberto Abazoski on the topic of lie detection methods and their uses, especially in the applications of the country's legal system.  Should these methods be admissible in court, especially those that involves observing the brain for activation of certain areas in order to determine when the subjects are lying?  Could this lead us down a road that we didn't intend, into a world where we can be punished for this we don't even do?

*Apologies ahead of time, they are both rather soft-spoken in the podcast.*

It was quite hard to hear Merrik. It was nice to hear both sides of the argument and both of your own perspectives about having a lie detection being used in court.

The interview part was hard to hear, but your use of information balanced that out because it was really nice hearing both sides of the argument. I wanted to know your thoughts when the lie detector will be good enough to use in court

I think that lie detection has many more years to go until its useful in court. Your interview was nice and like that that you both gave your own perspective. When do you think lie detection will be used in court?
