FIRE: An Integrated Trust and Reputation Model for Open Multi-Agent Systems
Trust and reputation are central to effective interactions in open multi-agent systems in which agents, that are owned by a variety of stakeholders, can enter and leave the system at any time. This openness means existing trust and reputation models cannot readily be used. To this end, we present FIRE, a trust and reputation model that integrates a number of information sources to produce a comprehensive assessment of an agent’s likely performance. Specifically, FIRE incorporates interaction trust, role-based trust, witness reputation, and certified reputation to provide a trust metric in virtually all circumstances. FIRE is empirically benchmarked and is shown to help agents effectively select appropriate interaction partners.
