Detecting Twitter bots in real time.
NortonLifeLock Research Group (NRG) released a prototype browser extension called BotSight that leverages machine learning to detect Twitter bots in real-time. The tool is intended to help users understand the prevalence of bots and disinformation campaigns within their Twitter feeds, particularly with the increase in disinformation of COVID-19.
Joining us on this week's Research Saturday to discuss this tool is Daniel Kats from NortonLifeLock Research Group.
