Wednesday night on Atlanta CBS affiliate WGCL-TV, reporter Mike Paluska interviewed private investigator T.J. Ward, who uses computer software to determine with a high degree of certainty whether someone is telling the truth.
“The software works by analyzing your voice, from emotional stress to your thought process,” Paluska said.
Two samples were played for the software, said to cost $15,000: one of GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain from his Phoenix press conference on Tuesday, and the other of his accuser Sharon Bialek from her Monday press conference in New York City.
The report showed a “low risk” of untruthfulness for Cain, while showing “subject not sure,” “high stress,” “high risk statement” and inaccuracy for Bialek.
“In my exam taken from his speech, [Cain] is being truthful about not having any knowledge about these allegations brought against him,” Ward said.
The software is 95 percent accurate, according to Ward, which is far better than polygraph tests.
