Overview Edit

The purpose of the MisInformation Detection (MInDet) Program is to reduce DOD vulnerability to open source information operations by developing the ability to detect intentional misinformation and to detect inconsistencies in open source data with regard to known facts and adversaries’ goals. MInDet seeks to improve national security by permitting the intelligence agencies to evaluate the reliability of a larger set of potential sources and, therefore, exploit those determined to be reliable and discount the remainder.

Other potential uses include the ability to detect misleading information on various government forms (e.g., visa applications) that would suggest further investigation is warranted, to identify foreign sources who provide different information to home audiences and to the United States, and to identify false or misleading statements in textual documents.
