Collaborative Decision-Making in Multi-Agent Systems for GIS Application
Group Decision Making (GDM) is an important human activity and it has many practical applications in society, economy, management and engineering, etc. Researchers are faced with new challenges in research on theory and methods of GDM with the rapid advent of internet and information technology. One of the challenges in collaborative work is social decision making in a computer mediated environment. Social trust models like recommender system, Bayesian trust for pervasive computing, are becoming invaluable part of distributed systems, where uncertainty prevails. In this paper the authors have proposed a Trust based collaborative decision making algorithm for distributed environment in which a group of agents collaborate for decision making.
