Trustworthy Service Selection and Composition

ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems, 6(1), 1–17.

By: C. Hang n & M. Singh n

Contributors: C. Hang n & M. Singh n

author keywords: Algorithms; Experimentation; Trust; probabilistic modeling; service-oriented computing
TL;DR: This work proposes two distributed trust-aware service selection approaches: one based on Bayesian networks and the other on a beta-mixture model and shows that both approaches accurately punish and reward services in terms of the qualities they offer, and further that the approaches are effective despite incomplete observations regarding the services under consideration.
