Please feel free to join the group on applied computational trust!
We are already around 290 academic and industrial members.
The trustcomp Yahoo! group has primarily been set up for the participants of the ACM SAC TRECK track on Trust, Online Reputation, Evidence and other Collaboration Know-how: http://www.trustcomp.org/treck/ (ACM SAC TRECK)
The mailing list and group is at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/trustcomp/
Active and open discussions range over topics like: computational trust, trust management, trust/risk engines, trustworthy recommenders, trust-based collaborative filtering, confidence in entity recognition, trust typology and topology, network/web of trust, trust-protected social/business networks, trust metrics analysis, trade-off between privacy and trust... Real-world applications under scrutiny concerns eBay-like reputation systems, Google's PageRankTM, PGP Web of trust, Klout...
It is expected that, from time to time, significant milestones and any consensus from various discussions will be documented and publicised on this site. For example, guidelines for the choice of the trust value format for the application under consideration are being compiled and should be available in the near future. For example:
