Project Description

Disinformation is a significant and growing problem that can be used to undermine the nation’s security. This project aims to apply a novel interdisciplinary approach to learn more about how disinformation can be
systematically identified, and how to categorise the clusters of disinformation that are more likely to be believed and spread. The project expects to build upon evidence-based knowledge on how to detect and counter disinformation in Australia. Expected outcomes of the project include an annotated dataset that could be used to improve detection tools and future research, a white paper delineating suggested policy and academic publications. Benefits include move forward to protect the nation’s security and citizens’ quality of life.
