Official narrative

The programme stated: "Malicious actors use techniques such as disinformation to skew public perception. This workshop focuses on methods to detect and counter both malicious actors with the intention of spreading disinformation and disinformation itself. Solutions that require Big Data, solutions that address actors who attempt to influence Big Data, and detection of disinformation using Big Data approaches are all in scope. Advancements in detection or prevention of disinformation in social media, journalism, and voting are of particular interest. This workshop seeks to bring together experts from diverse fields such as computer science, archival science, and social science. For example, computer science can provide technology to protect, share, and evaluate information. Archival science can provide techniques to detect inauthentic information and organize, preserve, and curate information. Social science can provide techniques to understand the motivation and effects of disinformation actors."
