Supporting trust in virtual communities
TLDR
In this paper we provide and discuss a trust model that is grounded in real-world social trust characteristics, and based on a reputation mechanism, or word-of-mouth. Expand

A distributed trust model
TLDR
The widespread use of the Internet signals the need for a better understanding of trust as a basis for secure on-line interaction. Expand

Adaptive routing for intermittently connected mobile ad hoc networks
TLDR
We present the context-aware routing (CAR) algorithm, a novel approach to the provision of asynchronous communication in partially connected mobile ad hoc networks, based on the intelligent placement of messages. Expand

Solving the shepherding problem: heuristics for herding autonomous, interacting agents
TLDR
We demonstrate an algorithm for shepherding sheep by dogs based on adaptive switching between collecting the agents when they are too dispersed and driving them once they are aggregated, which can be used to influence movements of living and artificial agents. Expand

Temporal diversity in recommender systems
TLDR
We show that temporal diversity is an important facet of recommender systems, by showing how CF data changes over time and performing a user survey. Expand

Trust-Based Collaborative Filtering
TLDR
We present a varation of kNN, the trusted k-nearest recommenders (or kNR) algorithm, which allows users to learn who and how much to trust one another by evaluating the utility of the rating information they receive. Expand

ILNP: mobility, multi-homing, localised addressing and security through naming
TLDR
This paper takes the position that evolving the naming in the Internet by splitting the address into separate Identifier and Locator names can provide an elegant integrated solution to the key issues listed above, without changing the core routing architecture, while offering incremental deployability through backwards compatibility with IPv6.

Using Recommendations for Managing Trust in Distributed Systems
TLDR
In this paper, we present our approach to the problem of trust management, which uses recommendations, and provide a general model based on recommendations. Expand

An ad hoc mobility model founded on social network theory
TLDR
We note that movement is strongly affected by the needs of humans to socialise in one form or another. Expand

Security of smart manufacturing systems
TLDR
A revolution in manufacturing systems is underway: substantial recent investment has been directed towards the development of smart manufacturing systems that are able to respond in real time to changes in customer demands, as well as the conditions in the supply chain. Expand
