Two documents relating to the ongoing debate on Nemesysco’s technology and its validity:
The first is a contribution to the discussion of technical aspects behind the technology, “LVA-technology: A short analysis of a lie”. I discuss the shortcomings of the technology on which Nemesysco’s “emotion detection devices” (lie-detectors) are based. This is not a complete analysis but it exposes the essential problems. In a forthcoming development I will assess in more detail the impact of spurious acoustic background activity.
The second document is Nemesysco’s official standpoint regarding the critique that Anders Eriksson and I have directed to their systems. Anders Eriksson and I present the original document along with our comments on Nemesysco’s official response, displayed as sticky notes. (Additional layout of the same document with notes listed on separate pages).
