Towards Improved Partner Selection Using Recommendations and Trust [chapter]

Sarah N. Lim Choi Keung, Nathan Griffiths
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a trust and reputation model, which allows agents to select interaction partners efficiently by adapting quickly to a dynamic environment.  ...  This reinforces our previous work on recommendation sharing, which includes information about the recency and relevance of interactions, allowing an evaluator to select recommenders based on trust.  ...  Trust and reputation are popular mechanisms used to help in the selection of the best suited interaction partners by resolving the issues of uncertainty.  ...

The purpose of the system is to improve the indices of assessing a construction enterprise by raising the level of partnering relations with other transactors in industry.  ...  The system indicates a recommendation supporting a decision-making system of any given construction enterprise and stating whether relations are to be preserved, changed or changed immediately to each  ...  The succeeding parameters to be improved are "trust" and "the number of suppliers": the latter ought to be limited to the most trusted partners.  ...

Agent-Based Approach for the Management of Dynamic QoS Violations in the Inter-Cloud Environments [chapter]

Manoj V. Thomas, K. Chandrasekaran, Gopal Mugeraya
2018 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
In this work, we have implemented the partner selection process, when one CSP does not have enough resources, using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity  ...  The proposed trust-based approach is used to dynamically manage the QoS violations among the partners in the federation.  ...  Hence, the economic benefits and the reputation of the partner CSPs in the cloud federation are improved.  ...

Trust in recommender systems

John O'Donovan, Barry Smyth
2005 Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '05  
We also show how these trust models can lead to improved predictive accuracy during recommendation.  ...  We present two computational models of trust and show how they can be readily incorporated into standard collaborative filtering frameworks in a variety of ways.  ...  We propose to modify the way that recommendation partners are generally selected or weighted during the recommendation process.  ...

Formal control influence on franchisee trust and brand-supportive behavior within franchise networks

Raisa Yakimova, Martin Owens, Jörg Sydow
2018 Industrial Marketing Management  
Our study contributes to understanding the complementary relationship between formal and social control on promoting partner trust and co-operation.  ...  We investigate formalization intent (the way in which controls are initiated and executed) by asking: How do franchisor formal controls promote trust and brand-supportive behavior among franchisees?  ...  Enabling and coercive compliance-promotingprocedures encourage brand-supportive behavior because they develop franchisee trust towards recommended actions to improve business compliance.  ...

Is trust robust?

John O'Donovan, Barry Smyth
2006 Proceedings of the 11th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '06  
Recent research has shown that incorporating trust and reputation models into the recommendation process can have a positive impact on the accuracy of recommendations.  ...  In this paper we examine the effect of using five different trust models in the recommendation process on the robustness of collaborative filtering in an attack situation.  ...  We now look at some of the relevant research which deals with building trust and reputation models in recommenders, and with ways to use trust metrics to improve recommendations.  ...
