Content vs. Behavioral Analyses

When it comes to detecting survey fraud and bot activity, there are two primary approaches: content analyses and behavioral analyses.

Content Analyses

Content analyses focus on the textual content of survey responses. They involve examining the language, grammar, and semantics of the responses to detect patterns indicative of fraudulent or bot-generated responses. Content analyses can identify:

  • Non-contextual or off-topic responses
  • Nonsensical or irrelevant answers
  • Identical responses and near-duplicates
  • GPT-generated responses

Behavioral Analyses

Behavioral analyses concentrate on the behavioral patterns exhibited by respondents during survey completion. They can detect:

  • Unusual typing speed
  • Programmatically entered text
  • (Upcoming) Device fingerprinting and tracking
  • (Upcoming) IP address and geolocation inconsistencies

By combining both content and behavioral analyses, Roundtable Alias provides comprehensive fraud detection capabilities, ensuring the integrity and accuracy of your survey data.
