A Machine Learning Collaborative Study of Language-Action Cues for Spontaneous Deceptive Communication, and Cyber-Ontology Development
Prof. Oded Maimon and Prof.Mary Ho Shuyuan
In this study, we will examine the use of deceptive language, and explore language usage patterns during online deceptive acts. As interpersonal communication is defined as a dynamic exchange of messages between or among two or more people , our research will focus on social interactions where participants try to mutually influence each other in a dynamic fashion. We thus seek an answer to the following research question: What linguistic cues can be attributed to deception in a computer mediated communication across a pluralistic background of users?
