This session will focus on large scale sentiment modification campaigns, and how we can use AI and ML to create operations significantly more complex that those currently used. These campaigns are designed to withstand intense scrutiny and last years.

We will look at one example campaign in detail based on a state sponsored malware group, and examine how the techniques could be utilized in practice.

The presentation will be geared towards a general audience and will focus on high level concepts and outcomes. The specific technologies presented will all be open source.
