Following the ASIS&T conference in St. Louis, Victoria and Yimin rushed off to attend the Association for Computing Machinery Workshop on Multimodal Deception Detection in Seattle. Held in conjunction with the 17th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction, this workshop featured keynote talks by Drs. Ioannis Pavlidis, Yejin Choi, and Jeffrey Hancock on multimodal approaches and challenges in deception detection research. At this venue, we presented a short paper arguing for the need to recognize “clickbait” articles as a type of false or misleading news, along with some potential lexical and non-lexical methods to automatically detect and flag instances of clickbait.
