Unisys chose from 23 challenges set by the initiative, and applied to develop an AI and ML-based solution to detect deceitful or persuasive writing in a collection of documents by the same author. With the research funding awarded in November 2020, Unisys will experiment, prototype and demonstrate the proposed approach using publicly available data, in a detailed technical paper and oral presentation in the first quarter of 2021.

“Ultimately we want to be able to detect if an author’s writing style has changed in documents making exaggerated claims. Real world applications could potentially include forensic analysis to determine who is the true author of a written piece for legal purposes; identify if emails or text messages are written by imposters such as hackers or phishers; or even detect fraudulent of fake statements on Twitter or other public information platforms designed to confuse media or the public,” said Dr. Xin Xu, practice lead for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Data Science for Unisys Asia Pacific.
More than 240 government agencies worldwide use Unisys solutions. And Unisys Advanced Analytics possess the intimate data knowledge that comes from deep industry experience.
