Using Incentives to Obtain Truthful Information [chapter]

Boi Faltings
2013 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
I survey several approaches to eliciting truthful information, in particular scoring rules, peer prediction methods and opinion polls, and discuss possible applications.  ...  There are many scenarios where we would like agents to report their observations or expertise in a truthful way. Game-theoretic principles can be used to provide incentives to do so.  ...  Acknowledgements I thank Radu Jurca who has worked with me on this topic for many years, and Karl Aberer for fruitful discussions on reputation and community sensing.  ...
