What We Do
Social Media is incredibly easy to manipulate and this has become weaponized. This has many names: influence operations, disinformation attacks, astroturfing campaigns and they're incredibly damaging.
We've seen the results: from political interference to climate change denial and measles outbreaks due to anti-vaccination conspiracy theories going viral on social media.
Astroscreen uses machine learning and human intelligence to detect and mitigate disinformation attacks. We've figured out how to detect fake accounts on social networks at scale and are credited with one of the largest botnet discoveries on Twitter.
