This cluster, led by systems engineer David Broniatowski, focuses on developing computational tools for identifying and analyzing harmful content and the malicious actors producing such content. Bringing social science to the forefront of its approach, MOSI works to ensure that computational analysis reflects the richness and complexity of social concepts, rather than merely capturing what’s easiest to detect and measure automatically. Researchers in the MOSI cluster are currently working on tools and analyses related to COVID-19, with a particular focus on developing tools to examine anti-Asian narratives.
