Friends for Free: Self-Organizing Artificial Social Networks for Trust and Cooperation

  title={Friends for Free: Self-Organizing Artificial Social Networks for Trust and Cooperation},
  author={D. Hales and Stefano Arteconi},
By harvesting friendship networks from e-mail contacts or instant message “buddy lists” Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications can improve performance in low trust environments such as the Internet. However, natural social networks are not always suitable, reliable or available. We propose an algorithm (SLACER) that allows peer nodes to create and manage their own friendship networks. We evaluate performance using a canonical test application, requiring cooperation between peers for socially optimal… Expand
