This module will introduce methods of stance detection and sentiment analysis in public opinion analysis. Besides understanding the challenges such methods may encounter through real-life examples, this module will introduce a Google Sheets extension and guide learners in using this extension to identify public opinion stances with large language models (LLMs). The course will provide practice examples and actual step-by-step tutorials to let learners experience the capabilities and usability of such tools. Furthermore, this module will also present case studies of stance detection in Chinese, allowing learners to experience the cross-lingual abilities of LLMs and the opportunities they present in overcoming cross-linguistic barriers in past international communication research.

In this class, we will learn the difference between cheap fakes and deep fakes/ AI generated images. First of all, we will use image reverse and google maps as the tools to search the original photo or understand the context of the related event. Compared to this “real” information, we can verify altered photos and out-of-context footage. Secondly, we will learn the trend of AI-generated and Deep Fakes. Through fun quizzes, you may feel how difficult it is to tell if the images are real or fake. Then, we will learn the open source tools and the tips to spot the AI-generated and Deep Fakes. The goal of this class is not only learning the practical tools and skills to verify the footage/ images, but also to cultivate media literacy and how to practice the verification SOP.
