Role of Trust in Creating Opinions in Social Networks

Jiří Jelínek

Abstract

Although we are not always aware of this, our existence and especially communication are based on the principles of trust. The importance of trust is crucial in systems where risk is present e.g. when handling the information we have acquired through communication because it is not always possible to immediately verify the truthfulness of it. The aim of this paper is to link two areas, namely the reality in the human community described above and the available knowledge of social networks and multi-agent systems, and try to simulate real trust concerned scenarios in society by these tools. The multi-agent model will be presented, which simulates the behavior of the heterogeneous group (people-like) entities in the process of creating their opinion about the world on the basis of information acquired through communication with other agents. The focus is placed on the processes influencing trust in communication partners and its dynamics. The results of the experiments are also presented.
