Abstract

Trust is an approach to managing the uncertainty about autonomous entities and the information they store, and so can play an important role in any decentralized system. As a result, trust has been widely studied in multiagent systems and related fields such as the semantic web. Here we introduce a simple approach to reasoning about trust with logic, describe how it can be combined with reasoning about beliefs using logic, and demonstrate its use on an example. The example highlights a number of issues related to resolving weighted arguments.
