As collaborative repositories grow in popularity and use, issues concerning the quality and trustworthiness of information grow. Some current popular repositories contain contributions from a wide variety of users, many of which will be unknown to a potential end user. Additionally the content may change rapidly and information that was previously contributed by a known user may be updated by an unknown user. End users are now faced with more challenges as they evaluate how much they may want… 
Computing trust from revision history
TLDR
This paper explores ways of utilizing the revision history of an article to assess the trustworthiness of the article and uses this revision history-based trust model to assess a chain of successive versions of articles in Wikipedia and evaluated the assessments produced by the model.
Calculating and Presenting Trust in Collaborative Content
TLDR
This work surveys the state-of-the-art for calculating trust in collaborative content and examines four proposals from literature based on: content persistence, natural-language processing, metadata properties, and incoming link quantity.
In Partial Fulfillment of the WPEII Requirement Calculating and Presenting Trust in Collaborative Content
Collaborative functionality is increasingly prevalent in Internet applications. Such functionality permits individuals to add -and sometimes modify -web content, often with minimal barriers to entry.
Mining Revision History to Assess Trustworthiness of Article Fragments
TLDR
This paper investigates the dynamic nature of revisions as it explores ways of utilizing revision history to develop an article fragment trust model and augments Wikis with a trust view layer with which users can visually identify text fragments of an article and view trust values computed by the model.
Trust Evaluation Mechanisms for Wikipedia
TLDR
The challenges for trust evaluation mechanisms, caused by the significant characteristics of Wikipedia’s knowledge base are discussed and new dimensions for effective trust evaluation mechanism are proposed to setup clear goals for future research in this area.
Modeling user reputation in wikis
TLDR
This work parse and mine the entire English Wikipedia history pages in order to extract detailed user edit patterns and statistics and derive three computational models of a user’s reputation, which are validated using ground–truth Wikipedia data associated with vandals and administrators.
Modeling user reputation in wikis
TLDR
Pparse and mine the entire English Wikipedia history pages in order to extract detailed user edit patterns and statistics and derive three computational models of a user's reputation, which are validated using ground-truth Wikipedia data associated with vandals and administrators.
Trust Evaluation Scheme of Web Data Based on Provenance in Social Semantic Web Environments
TLDR
The proposed trust evaluation scheme considers various parameters such as user trust, original data trust, and user evaluation and can manage the provenance of web data and compute data trust correctly by using such various parameters.
Trust in collaborative web applications
TLDR
This work defines the notion of trust for collaborative web applications and survey the state-of-the-art for calculating, interpreting, and presenting trust values.
Trust-based Recommendations in Multi-layer Networks
TLDR
This work is to extend the approach to trust-based recommendations, which up to now have been made for isolated items such as movies, to linked resources, in particular documents, and implements a two-layer architecture and provides personalized recommendations via a web interface.

A reputation-based trust model for peer-to-peer ecommerce communities
TLDR
A coherent adaptive trust model for quantifying and comparing the trustworthiness of peers based on a transaction-based feedback system is presented and initial results are obtained, showing the feasibility and benefit of this approach.
Computational models of trust and reputation: agents, evolutionary games, and social networks
  • L. Mui

  • 2002
TLDR
It is shown that by providing an indirect inference mechanism for the propagation of trust and reputation, cooperation among selfish agents can be explained for a set of game theoretic simulations and the proposal is shown to have provided more cooperative agent communities than existing schemes are able to.
A Many Valued Representation and Propagation of Trust and Distrust
TLDR
This paper proposes to model a network of trust between sources as an intuitionistic fuzzy relation, which allows to elegantly handle together the problem of ignorance and vagueness, i.e. trust as a matter of degree.
The Eigentrust algorithm for reputation management in P2P networks
TLDR
An algorithm to decrease the number of downloads of inauthentic files in a peer-to-peer file-sharing network that assigns each peer a unique global trust value, based on the peer's history of uploads is described.

  • 2003
TLDR
A Bayesian network-based trust model and a method for building reputation based on recommendations in peer-to-peer networks are proposed and shown to outperforms the system where peers do not share recommendations with each other and that a differentiated trust adds to the performance in terms of percentage of successful interactions.
Propagation of trust and distrust
TLDR
It is shown that a small number of expressed trusts/distrust per individual allows us to predict trust between any two people in the system with high accuracy.
Decentralized trust management
TLDR
This paper presents a comprehensive approach to trust management, based on a simple language for specifying trusted actions and trust relationships, and describes a prototype implementation of a new trust management system, called PolicyMaker, that will facilitate the development of security features in a wide range of network services.
Explaining answers from the Semantic Web: the Inference Web approach
TLDR
The infrastructure includes: IWBase - an extensible web-based registry containing details about information sources, reasoners, languages, and rewrite rules; PML - the Proof Markup Language specification and API used for encoding portable proofs; IW browser - a tool supporting navigation and presentations of proofs and their explanations; and a new explanation dialogue component.
A proof markup language for Semantic Web services
TLDR
This paper describes the proof markup language (PML), an interlingua representation for justifications of results produced by Semantic Web services, and introduces the Inference Web infrastructure that uses PML as the foundation for providing explanations of Web services to end users.
