    Abstract

    Digitized polygraph data were collected during criminal investigations to develop a computerized algorithm for evaluating zone comparison polygraph examinations. The algorithm was incorporated in a software system and provides consistent and objective examination interpretation. The software system evaluates the data using methods that are fundamentally different than those used by examiners. It is currently in use in more than 40 of the United States and in other countries around the world.
