Research Objectives

The specific research objectives of DeciTrustNET are:

  1. To establish a new SNA framework for managing multiple inconsistent heterogeneous information sources that enables the implementation of trust, in which uncertain information can be truly characterised by uncertain values rather than precise crisp values.
  2.  To define trust propagation and aggregation operators for trust networks and design an estimating method for missing values by trust network analysis driven by game theoretic modelling of malicious users.
  3.  To create a trust based feedback mechanism to provide personalised recommended advice to the experts with a low consensus level.
  4. To develop a mobile e-health platform based on the proposed trust based social network to provide personalised recommendation for patients recovering from Cancer to keep healthy lifestyles.
