Robust Trust Management for Open and Distributed Networks

May 21, 10:00am - 11:00am CEST


Abstract: Trust, as a soft security mechanism, can protect us from malicious parties who offer us resources or services in open and distributed networks. In this talk, I will briefly introduce the definitions and characteristics of trust. I will also give a few example models of trust. There are many challenges when modeling trust. I will particularly focus on the issue of unfair rating attacks by introducing several different approaches in coping with the unfair rating attacks. Finally, I will bring up several remaining issues that should be addressed for trust models to be robust.

Biography: Jie Zhang is currently an Associate Professor of the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He obtained Ph.D. in Cheriton School of Computer Science from University of Waterloo, Canada, and was the recipient of the Alumni Gold Medal at the 2009 Convocation Ceremony. The Gold Medal is awarded once a year to honour the top PhD graduate from the University of Waterloo. Jie Zhang's research is in the general area of Artificial Intelligence and focuses on trust modeling and preference modeling for various emerging application domains (e.g. e- commerce, VANET, IoT, collaborative systems, etc.). His papers have been published by top AI conferences (such as NeurIPS, AAAI and IJCAI) and top networking and security journals (such as IEEE TIFS and IEEE TNSM). He has won several best paper awards at the conferences like IM, CNSM, IFIPTM, etc. Jie Zhang is also active in serving research communities. He is serving as Senior Editor of the Electronic Commerce Research and Applications journal and Associate Editor of IEEE TNSM. He also served as General Chairs and PC Chairs for several international conferences.
