“The polygraph is ideal for crime-specific incidents. But because of cost, invasiveness, training and upkeep, it can’t be used on a large scale. With EyeDetect, those costs can be reduced significantly. It’s non-invasive, quick, and results are immediate. It helps companies hire and keep honest people.”
–Former program manager at the U.S. Dept. of State
The Converus EyeDetect system is the latest scientific advancement to answer the problem of large scale screenings of all kinds.
It is more cost effective than polygraph examinations, are quicker to implement and allows for large scale screenings in shorter spans of time. Despite all of these advantages it still boasts an accuracy rating of 86%. If EyeDetect and polygraph are used in succession, they combine statistically for an outcome confidence as high as 98.9% when an examinee passes or fails both tests. To see how, read the AAPP Journal article here: 20160301-The-Police-Polygraph-Journal-Article.
“Using EyeDetect and polygraph in a successive hurdles model is the most scientifically effective way to increase screening accuracy.”
—Mark Handler, independent polygraph examiner and board member of the American Polygraph Association (APA) and American Association of Police Polygraphists (AAPP)
If your company is in need of screening a large number of staff or applicants quickly, accurately and in a cost effective manner the Converus EyeDetect is the answer. For a quote or more information please do not hesitate to call or request a free consultation meeting.
EyeDetect is still far from surpassing polygraph examinations in specific investigations, statement verification and similar applications. It does however provide the unique ability of large scale screenings which is the one area standard polygraph examinations fall short.
Scientific Studies Validates EyeDetect
In 2006, after the Converus Science Team completed substantial testing of this concept of monitoring eye behavior to detect deception, a University of Utah psychology graduate student working with the science team published its findings. The Osher Dissertation documented the first lab study that demonstrated the effectiveness of an ocular-motor deception test (ODT). A second formal scientific study in 2008 confirmed the effectiveness of the ODT technology, and its results were published in the Webb Dissertation in August of that year. In 2012, field studies were conducted. The results were peer reviewed by other scientists and professors and published on April 30 of that year in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied. Since the initial product launch, the Science Team has continued to carry out field studies in various languages. Results will be published in an ongoing manner.
