A digital border guard will interrogate travellers at some European Union borders in an attempt to ramp up security at crossings.

Dubbed iBorderCtrl, the agent features an AI lie detector that quizzes tourists on their trip, including the contents of their suitcase.

The system is part of a six-month trial run by the Hungarian National Police at four different border crossing points in Hungary, Latvia, and Greece.

Each crossing borders a country outside of the EU.

If successful, the technology could be rolled out to borders across the union’s member states.

‘We’re employing existing and proven technologies – as well as novel ones – to empower border agents to increase the accuracy and efficiency of border checks,’ project coordinator George Boultadakis of European Dynamics in Luxembourg.

‘iBorderCtrl’s system will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit.’

The digital border guard will question people after they have passed through a checkpoint.

It works via your laptop or phone, using your device’s camera to record your face when you give answers.

The system then uses AI software to scan the video for 38 ‘micro-gestures’ which it scores to assess whether a traveller is lying.
