The team’s investigators represent diverse backgrounds, including Cyber Trust and Analytics (Katie Liszewski and David Collins, Battelle), Mathematics (Joseph Tien, OSU), Social Networks (Robert Bond, OSU), Communication (Erik Nisbet, Northwestern), and Public Policy (Samuel Malloy, OSU). According to Erik Nisbet, Owen L. Coon Endowed Professor of Policy Analysis and Communication, this is the strength of the team, “There have been many efforts to track and mitigate misinformation, but this initiative is truly unique due to its combination of multiple approaches from network science, social media analytics, and computational linguistics, and an understanding of the psychology behind its spread and influence.”

Katie Liszewski, a cybersecurity engineer, explains that the approach uses programs that can identify misinformation across multiple languages.“These tools track the potential of new misinformation spreading through influential groups to the general public and eliminates the need to exhaustively catalog the millions of tweets, posts, and likes generated every day. The approach will enable decision makers and spokespeople to quickly craft public service announcements to counter dangerous misinformation without causing information fatigue.”

Development of this concept began when COVID-19 was first reported in the United States, and the collaboration was initially funded internally by both Battelle and the Ohio State Office of Research. Now the project will be funded by IARPA, part of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which invests in high-risk, high-payoff research programs to tackle some of the most difficult challenges of the agencies and disciplines in the Intelligence Community.

“In a rapidly changing, high-volume social media landscape, our goal is to identify misleading or false content that is on the brink of becoming widespread and that would pose outsized risk to public health if it did become widely disseminated,” said Sam Malloy, Battelle Center for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy in Ohio State University’s John Glenn College of Public Affairs. “This is a critical step in prioritizing mitigation efforts and can facilitate a more targeted approach to combating the ‘infodemic’.”

About Ohio State Battelle Center

Ohio State Battelle Center for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy is part of the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. Started from a generous endowment from Battelle in 2006, Ohio State Battelle Center has gone through many iterations in the technology and policy arena, the most recent starting in 2017 with the arrival of executive director, Dr. Elizabeth Newton. Today, Ohio State Battelle Center focuses on connecting policymakers with scientists and engineers to make sense of complex technical information, anticipate the challenges ahead, and solve wicked problems. Through research and professional development programming, Ohio State Battelle Center aims to tackle challenges that require multiple disciplines while preparing students to be innovative in the public interest.

该团队的调查人员代表了不同的背景,包括网络信任和分析(Katie Liszewski和David Collins,Battelle)、数学(Joseph Tien,OSU)、社交网络(Robert Bond,OSU)、通信(Erik Nisbet,Northwestern)和公共政策(Samuel Malloy,OSU)。欧文·库恩(Owen L.Coon)的政策分析和沟通教授埃里克·尼斯贝特(Erik Nisbet)认为,这是团队的力量所在,“已经有很多努力来跟踪和减少错误信息,但这一举措确实是独一无二的,因为它结合了来自网络科学、社交媒体分析和计算语言学的多种方法,并且理解了其传播和影响背后的心理学。”

网络安全工程师Katie Liszewski解释说,这种方法使用的程序可以识别跨多种语言的错误信息。“这些工具可以追踪通过有影响力的群体向公众传播新错误信息的可能性,并消除了对每天产生的数百万条推文、帖子和点赞进行详尽分类的需要。该方法将使决策者和发言人能够迅速制定公共服务公告,以对抗危险的错误信息,而不会造成信息疲劳。”


Battelle科学与工程中心的Sam Malloy说:“在一个快速变化、高容量的社交媒体环境中,我们的目标是识别有误导性或虚假的内容,这些内容正处于传播的边缘,如果被广泛传播,将对公众健康造成巨大的风险。”,俄亥俄州立大学约翰·格伦公共事务学院的公共政策。“这是确定缓解措施优先级的关键一步,有助于采取更有针对性的方法来打击“信息危机”
