University of Nevada, Reno: Linguistic/game-theoretic approach detects and explains online propaganda

University of Nevada, Reno: Linguistic/game-theoretic approach detects and explains online propaganda. “In a paper recently published in Expert Systems with Applications, Arash Barfar, assistant professor of information systems in the University’s College of Business, developed and tested a model for the automatic detection and explanation of propagandistic content on the Internet. Barfar constructed a dataset containing nearly 205,000 articles from 39 propagandistic and 30 trustworthy news sources and computed 92 linguistic features for each article. He then built predictive models that detect online propaganda.”
