Researchers at North Carolina State University (NC State) and the U.S. Army Research Office have created a new model that could be used to quickly displace false information spread in online social networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) and replace it with accurate information.

They found that a highly interconnected network can disseminate new data quickly.

The researchers identified an algorithm that can help determine which point in a network would allow new data to spread most quickly.

Said Wenye Wang of NC State, "Practically speaking, this could be used to ensure that an IoT network purges old data as quickly as possible and is operating with new, accurate data."
