Looking Glass

What: I worked on Looking Glass, a Data Mining and Visualization tool developed for storing and analyzing views from social media networks and identifying disinformation spread on social media and find accounts spreading it.

McCain Institute (ASU) developed their report on “Tracking and Refuting
Disinformation in Georgia”
using the tool.

Where: I developed the tool working as Research Assistant at Cognitive Information Processing System Lab, ASU (October 2018 – May 2019).

Technologies: The ML tool is built with React – Redux + D3 (Javascript) on frontend and Flask (Python), PostgreSQL and ElasticSearch on backend.
We used Deep Neural Networks for classifying news as disinformation or not and different community detection algorithms (like Lovain) for finding communities spreading it.

Link: The tool is private for University use.
