A new approach to the detection of machine-generated texts
Under the initiative of the armasuisse – Cyber-Defence Campus, a team of EPFL scientists, including CYD Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow Andrei Kucharavy in the Distributed Computing Lab, have investigated a new approach to the detection of machine-generated texts. Machine-generated texts are a useful tool that can be used to our benefit – for instance to rapidly summarize large complex documents – such as for weather forecast or medical records. However, they can also be used to impersonate real people on the internet and to conduct disinformation and harassment campaigns, on and off social media.
