The Science Behind Catching Criminals and Cheats: Benford’s Law - Livestream

What do the IRS, election fraud, great music, Russian bots, deep fakes, and volcanoes have in common? The answer: Benford’s Law. But if you’re like us, you a) didn’t know this and b) don’t understand what this Law is all about. Not to worry because we’ve got you covered. Or more accurately, next week’s Exchange guest does. Computer scientist Jennifer Golbeck will take us through this mind bending mathematical tool that quietly and inexplicably describes our world in a way that’s so consistent, it can be used to catch cheats, thieves, and miscreants online.

Speaker: Jennifer Golbeck, University of Maryland
