Border guards will be equipped with handheld digital devices that will allow them to cross-check travelers identity and compare facial images taken during the pre-screening to passport photos as well as their present appearance.
Apart from making border checks easier and faster for law-abiding travelers, the system is also aimed at spotting illegal immigrants and thus "contribute to the prevention of crime and terrorism".
A statement issued by the European Commission said the bloc's external borders were coming under increasing pressure as a result of the 700 million people who cross borders into the EU every year.
The IBORDERCTRL system will require travellers will use an online application to upload pictures of their passport, visa and proof of funds, then use a webcam to answer questions from a computer-animated border guard, personalised to the traveller's gender, ethnicity and language.
The system "will collect data that will move beyond biometrics and on to biomarkers of deceit", said project coordinator George Boultadakis, of information technology service company European Dynamics in Luxembourg.
There are some catches to buying a OnePlus 6T through T
The bootloader will be unlockable, but only after the device has been paid off and has spent 40 days on the T-Mobile network. If you're in the market for the OnePlus 6T and don't know which one to get, the unlocked variant is the safer long-term bet.

Subaru and Toyota Recall Over 400,000 Vehicles for Faulty Valve Springs
The Toyota 86, which was sold as the Scion FR-S in the United States during the recall period in question, is also affected here. The problem is with four-cylinder engines found in the 2012 to 2014 Subaru Impreza , 2013 XV Crosstrek , and 2013 BRZ .
"Non-verbal signals, such as micro-expressions, really do not say anything about whether someone is lying or not". Then, the virtual border guard starts to ask questions.
Once at the border, folks flagged as low risk go through a short re-evaluation before entry; higher-risk passengers undergo a more detailed check. If they are lying, their biometric information will be taken, including fingerprints, palm-vein reading and face-match, before being taken to a human agent who would review their information.
Prelaunch experiments with an older system had a success rate of around 75 per cent, which the team behind iBorderCtrl believes is because its tests were done with volunteers who had been asked to lie. However, the accuracy rate of roughly 76 percent - based on a trial of 30 people - leaves much to be desired, and so concrete trials are a preferable option to an EU-wide rollout until the lie detection system has been improved.
Reportedly, the project uses artificial intelligence to speed up border-crossing travellers.
