In this two-part episode, Deakin University's Associate Professors Phill and Wendy stopped by for a chat about their research on the detection of contract cheating with Turnitin's Authorship Investigate technology. This research presents the first quantitative empirical study into the use of authorship analysis technology and machine learning to improve detection rates of contract cheating.
Part One covers Phill and Wendy's backgrounds, what contract cheating is and why there is a need for such research.
