Torsten H. Voigt has been awarded a DFG research grant entitled "Sociotechnical systems of anticipatory truth verification in the field of airport security". The project which is set top begin in April 2021 will be carried out by Larissa Fischer in cooperation with Bettina Paul from the University of Hamburg. The project will trace the development and implementation of partially and fully automated "truth verification procedures" at airports. These screening procedures aim to identify individuals with malicious intent (or mal-intent) based on the measurement of nonverbal, psychophysiological signals. The project aims to identify the conceptualizations and aspirations behind the detection procedures and to reconstruct their socio-technical development processes.
