Al-Mutazbellah Khamees, Mohd Sharifuddin, Alicia Y.
2018 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
In this paper, the trust parameter of the mechanism is analyzed and a norm's trust model is proposed and utilized in the evaluation of a norm's benefits for subsequent adoption or rejection.  ...  Keywords-Norm's benefits; norm's trust; norm detection; normative multi-agent systems; intelligent software agent I.  ...  For the purpose of evaluating the trustworthiness of agents, the trust factor as defined in the context of these models, have been used.  ...

Toward a testbed for evaluating computational trust models: experiments and analysis

Partheeban Chandrasekaran, Babak Esfandiari
2015 Journal of Trust Management  
We propose a generic testbed for evaluating social trust models and we show how existing models can fit our tesbed.  ...  To showcase the flexibility of our design, we implemented a prototype and evaluated three trust algorithms, namely EigenTrust, PeerTrust and Appleseed, for their vulnerabilites to attacks and compliance  ...  Thus for a researcher to evaluate and compare his or her latest model against existing ones, a comprehensive test tool is needed.  ...

Decision making matters: A better way to evaluate trust models

David Jelenc, Ramón Hermoso, Jordi Sabater-Mir, Denis Trček
2013 Knowledge-Based Systems  
They assume that if all trust models use the same decision making mechanism, the mechanism itself becomes irrelevant for the evaluation.  ...  Based on our findings, we recommend to evaluate trust models independently of the decision making mechanism -and we also provide a method (and a tool) to do so.  ...  DART provides a flexible, multi-faced and general environment for evaluating performance of agents. However, its evaluation model concentrates around trust-based decisions.  ...

Delegating to software agents

ALLEN E. MILEWSKI, STEVEN H. LEWIS
1997 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
In contrast, the "delegation" model associated with agents is based on entrusting tasks to an autonomous, sometimes anthropomorphized system, whose performance is monitored and evaluated.  ...  For this purpose, designers should find the management sciences and organizational psychology literatures to be as relevant as that of traditional human factors.  ...  The user interface model associated with intelligent agent systems differs from the "tool" model in several ways.  ...

A Survey of Multi-Agent Trust Management Systems

Han Yu, Zhiqi Shen, Cyril Leung, Chunyan Miao, Victor R. Lesser
2013 IEEE Access  
Over the past decade, a large number of trust management models have been proposed.  ...  In open and dynamic multi-agent systems (MASs), agents often need to rely on resources or services provided by other agents in order to accomplish their goals.  ...  When human motivations interact in multi-agent systems, new research opportunities arise for trust management.  ...
