Asymptotically Idempotent Aggregation Operators for Trust Management in Multi-agent Systems
Roberto Ghiselli Ricci, Marco Viviani.
The study of trust management in
multi-agent system, especially distributed,
has grown over the last
years. Trust is a complex subject
that has no general consensus in literature,
but has emerged the importance
of reasoning about it computationally.
Reputation systems takes
into consideration the history of an
entity’s actions/behavior in order to
compute trust, collecting and aggregating
ratings from members in a
community. In this scenario the aggregation
problem becomes fundamental,
in particular depending on
the environment. In this paper we
describe a technique based on a class
of asymptotically idempotent aggregation
operators, suitable particulary
for distributed anonymous environments.
