Nevertheless, I&rsquo m here to interview his father, Mordi Gazit, who worked for the Israeli Police Polygraph Unit for 65 years before he cofounded the institute in Tel Aviv.
From the moment I meet Mordi, I feel like I&rsquo m in the presence of a government agent. The 69-year-old has experience written all over his face. He&rsquo s professional, speaks confidently and looks me dead in the eye as he asks for my press credentials. I think to myself that even if I can trick the machine, this guy would know if I was lying. I already feel nervous, as if I&rsquo m going to get caught for something I haven&rsquo t done. I&rsquo d later discover that this is part of the problem with the tests.
Polygraph evidence is generally not admissible in criminal court in the US and most of Europe. But the authorities have found other uses for them.

In the US, polygraphs are used to screen candidates for the CIA and other government jobs.
One of the most prolific truth-seeking techniques that man has developed is the association of truth and lies to the physiological reactions exhibited by a person in the face of deception.

This led to the modern-day polygraph or lie detector test.

The 7566 meta-analysis conducted by the American Polygraph Association found that Guilty Knowledge type tests were incorrect closer to 65% of the time.
