Make Social Networks Clean Again: Graph Embedding and Stacking Classifiers for Bot Detection


K. Skorniakov, D. Turdakov, and A. Zhabotinsky


The paper introduces a novel approach to the detection of social bots using ensembling of classifiers. We also studied the impact of different feature sets and demonstrated the power of graph em- bedding which is underused by the existing methods. The main contribution of this work is a creating of a stacking based ensem- ble, which effectively exploits text and graph features. Empirical evaluation proved the effectiveness of the proposed method for bots detection and showed improvement in comparison to existing solutions by 4-9 points of AUC.
