“Russian hacking” has become a hot topic in the United States. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence published a report on January 7, which contained the assessment that Russia attempted to interfere in the US general election of 2016, in a way which would be consistent with how Russia has conducted information operations over the past decade against Ukraine and other eastern European nations. Contrary to popular understanding in the West, Russian strategic doctrine conceives of “information warfare” as going well beyond the hacking of hard systems: it is also aimed at reaching hearts and minds and undermining public trust in Western institutions. In part, this is done by a modern reinvention of Cold-War-style propaganda, now using social media, to spread disinformation.
In this talk Dr. Chew will describe research work undertaken to take Russian strategic ideas and turn them on their head, incorporating them into advanced big-data-analytics techniques applied to corpora of hundreds of thousands of Twitter social media posts, with the goal of enhancing the West’s defensive posture. We show how using these techniques, it is possible to understand better the specific vectors of attack used in Russian-style “information warfare”, and give specific examples of knowledge gained from a Twitter dataset in Russian and English gathered during the 2016 Presidential election campaign.
We hope to see you August 30!
