AVATAR Kiosk: Interactive biometrics technology assists law enforcement at border crossings and airports
The AVATAR kiosk as being developed by The University of Arizona, is an interactive screening technology which assists law enforcement at border crossings and airports to detect lies and other deceptive behaviours.
When individuals approach the kiosk, they scan their identification, and it detects pupil changes down in the millimetre level and asks a few questions. Border control would step in to work directly with individuals whose behavior is suspicious as flagged by the AVATAR Kiosk.
BIG MAMA is watching you: Intelligent TV incorporates gesture, voice, and image recognition

Steve Di Paola demonstrates a real-time, emotion aware, parametised virtual agent system to Chatbots.org. Awesome
Steve Di Paola of the Simon Fraser University demonstrated a virtual agent system to Chatbots.org. This system interprets real time emotions in input such as voice, and shows facial expressions and gestures.
In the first few minutes of the video, he demonstrated various types of faces. Steve grabbed his microphone and started talking. The avatar spoke similar to Steve and his (or her) lips were synchronized with his words. As soon as Steve raised or changed his voice, the avatar acted correspondingly, which was absolutely amazing. It widened its mouth when talking louder; it moved its eyebrow to emphasize what it was saying, and it responded to a drumming sound. Wow!
