In the ever-expanding contest between artificial intelligence and the ordinary human mind, you can chalk up another one for the computer.Scientists have developed a computer system with sophisticated pattern recognition abilities that performed much better than humans in differentiating between people experiencing genuine pain and people who were just faking it.The computer was right 85 percent of the time.The researchers say its pattern-recognition abilities successfully spotted distinctive aspects of facial expressions, particularly involving mouth movements, that people generally missed.The computer had been programmed to recognize that one kind of facial movement combinations suggested true pain and another kind suggested faked pain.The computer system proved far better than people at spotting subtle differences between involuntary and voluntary facial movements that underpin sincerity, the researchers said.
