Ontology, Semantics and Reputation

Abstract / Description of output

In this chapter we discuss the problem of communicating about trust and how semantic technologies can help. We briefly introduce these semantic technologies and then discuss two well-known ontologies of trust: backslashmathcalLRepand FORe. However, defining a shared language for trust ignores the personal and subjective aspect of trust, which are an important part of how it is used. We therefore discuss a number of filtering and alignment methods that allow for the processing of communicated trust evaluations without compromising the subjective aspect of trust.
