Features

  • Provides a detailed introduction to the concept of trust and its application in various computer science areas, including multi-agent systems, online social networks, and communication systems
  • Identifies some challenges of trust modeling that cannot be addressed by traditional approaches
  • Explains how reputation-based systems are used to determine trust in diverse online communities
  • Describes how machine learning techniques are employed to build robust reputation systems
  • Explores two distinctive approaches to determining credibility of resources—one where the human role is implicit, and one that leverages human input explicitly
  • Shows how decision support can be facilitated by computational trust models
  • Discusses collaborative filtering-based trust aware recommendation systems
  • Defines a framework for translating a trust modeling problem into a learning problem
  • Investigates the objectivity of human feedback, emphasizing the need to filter out outlying opinions

Summary

Computational Trust Models and Machine Learning provides a detailed introduction to the concept of trust and its application in various computer science areas, including multi-agent systems, online social networks, and communication systems. Identifying trust modeling challenges that cannot be addressed by traditional approaches, this book:
