Abstract

This paper presents the T-SWEETS algorithm, a novel approach for inferring trust in social networks and its deployment in a social network knowledge- based management platform, titled Konnen (Knowledge Organization in a Native Network ENvironment). An objective of trust inference is to recommend trust relationships. The features of T-SWEETS come from an inquiry with a group of 53 people. We also present results obtained from experiment conducted with a group of 57 people during the second half of 2012.
