Yawning through the data wars
Posted on by

Frontiers in Physics is not our regular reading, but it could well be now it’s given us the amusing information that the only things bots can’t imitate in their quest to convince us they are human is our lack of effort.

Bots are just too…enthusiastic.  Our energy runs out by the end of the day and that is even apparent in our electronic exchanges.   Our replies become shorter, our language lazier and our lack of oomph evident.

It’s actually a useful characteristic of ours as it’s helping information scientists work out ways to identify bots on fake accounts.  So don’t be ashamed of the mid-afternoon slump, rejoice in it.  You’re actually contributing to the war against fraud.

Yeah.  Whatevs.
