This project will develop SOCRETIS – an AI-enabled, interactive reasoning aid that can help people assess the nature and quality of consensus views gleaned via a shared information environment. With the ability to index and cross-reference large volumes of information in real-time, AI tools are well suited to guiding human reasoners in this way.
SOCRETIS has the potential to enable Defence Information Warfare capability by bolstering national resilience to malign influence in the grey-zone. The primary aim is to assist people with navigating the information environment at hand (initially focussing on social media posts), enabling more evidence-based opinions and decisions.
The ultimate goal is an upscaled tool that will help people to protect themselves against information warfare online.
