Primer’s disinformation work in support of USSOCOM has established the foundation for a state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence (AI) Information and Influence Operations (I2O) platform. However, with adversaries gaining access to large parameter (e.g. GPT-J) language models and ever sophisticated, AI-enabled disinformation tools, there is an urgent need to continue to build on our Natural Language Processing (NLP)/Natural Language Generation (NLG)-powered counter-disinformation capabilities. Primer proposes to further strengthen our next-generation I20 platform by achieving three key technical objectives: (1) build scalable data ingest infrastructure with foreign language translation support, (2) identify synthetic text and the coordinated amplification of messages, and (3) bolster USSOCOM I2O capabilities by directly supporting synthetic text “Red Team” exercises. By further enhancing the Primer counter-disinformation toolkit, Primer will complement capabilities developed under our Phase II 19.3 SBIR and ensure USSOCOM remains competitive in the I20 domain.
