Abstract

Discriminating between deceit and truth is a significant security challenge in a variety of situations, including border crossings, job interviews, flight passenger screenings, and police interviews. Previous research indicates that some features of vocal speech, e.g., fundamental frequency, are related to human emotion and stress levels making them applicable deception detection. This paper focuses on voice and speech feature extraction using advanced signal processing methodology. These generated speech features are used to submit data mining algorithms for classifying deception. The result of this paper is expected to be directly applied to the deception detection system.
