Behavior Management in Online Deception

Lina Zhou, Department of Information Systems

Online deception can cause not only temporary asset loss, but long-term psychological or emotional harm to victims as well. The richness and large scale of online communication data open up new opportunities for detecting online deception. However, deceivers are motivated to manage their behaviors to evade detection. In addition, people are poor at detecting deception. Against this backdrop, this project aims to improve the resilience of solutions to online deception and enable predictive methods for their detection.
