Computationally modelling trust: An exploration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPublished conference contribution


Trust is a popular and much disputed topic in various research communities. This paper attempts to integrate existing knowledge on trust into a simple computational model. The model incorporates the impact of direct experiences, reputation, stereotypes, empathy and user characteristics on trust. We present the results of two exploratory experiments testing and improving aspects of the model.
