Frequently asked questions
How does the system work?
Aletheia is an innovative system which is based on Eye-Minders Trust-Technology. Aletheia can identify if someone is lying or telling the truth by analyzing his eyes’ movements and reactions to simple Yes / No questions.
How long does a test takes?
The test itself is very short and takes only a few minutes.
How long until I get the results?
The results report is produced automatically at the end of the test and sent to the client.
Is the system reliable?
The system is very reliable!
First, every part of the process is automatic. The system is objective, unbiased and the results are not influenced by an examiner’s professionalism or weaknesses.
Second, the system was tested and is currently in use by numerous private companies and governmental security agencies. The system’s accuracy is about 93%.
Does the system keep the privacy of the testee?
The data that is sent to Eye-Minders from the system is encrypted and doesn’t include any details or sensitive information about the testee.
Does the system send images of the testee?
Images of the testee are never sent to anyone and are deleted at the end of every questionnaire. Furthermore, the only information the system uses is data about the testee’s eye-dynamics.
Does the system have any language barriers?
Aletheia doesn’t have any language or cultural barriers. Each testee can be questioned in his mother tongue, preventing misunderstandings and avoiding the need for special translators for each language. Aletheia has already been tested on a variety of people from different cultures, speaking different languages.
Do I need to get to a specific location in order to take a test?
Aletheia is a multi-platform system and has many different applications determined by the client/testee’s needs. You can either take the test at Eye-Minders offices, at the client’s facilities or via an Eye-Minders’ representative at your own home.
Is it possible to manipulate the system and influence the results?
No, there’s no way to manipulate Aletheia or influence the system’s results. In contrast to other methods, our system is based on the visual system. The visual system is an automatic and autonomous system with very fast responses. Thus, there’s no way for a testee to manipulate the system. Furthermore, the system identifies “suspicious” behavior and alerts the operator when a testee is not being cooperative.
Since the system is using the testee’s eyes, do glasses, contacts or heavy eye make-up influence the results and can they be problematic?
After testing Aletheia on a large variety of people, we can say that neither glasses, contacts nor eye make-up have any influence on the system’s results. Aletheia is highly adaptive and can handle any of those things in order to bring the best results for each testee.
As the head of Human Resources in my company, I would like to improve our recruitment process for new applicants. How can I do so? Do I need to totally replace the current process?
Aletheia can be easily deployed in multiple ways in the company’s recruitment process. Our main goal is to improve the current process and to bring maximum results with minimum interference. Today, Aletheia is already integrated in processes where there are also other tools for credibility assessment, such as an interview, background checks and polygraph test.
