DMRC’s Dr Tim Graham has been awarded an ARC Discovery Early Career Research Award for his project Combatting Coordinated Inauthentic Behaviour on Social Media.
Online disinformation is a global problem that threatens national security and is harmful to society. However, current methods are not suited to detect coordinated disinformation operations that conceal their activity by co-opting and cultivating regular users, groups and social movements. This project develops cutting-edge methods and workflows to accurately distinguish genuine activity from coordinated inauthentic behaviour, and to trace and evaluate the adoption of material spread by malicious actors across multiple platforms.
