'''ABSTRACT:'''
 
There are numerous models that attempt to give a clear and precise formalisation of the notion
 
of trust. Ranging from cognitive models (where the mental states of trusting agents are the
 
base for trust values) to game-theoretic models (where trust depends on subjective
 
probabilities attributed to events), the literature on computational trust is a huge jungle of
 
different approaches and different representations of the notion of trust. Each one of those
 
representations bear peculiar features that allows an application of the concept of trust to
 
specific scenarios. Nonetheless, the literature suffers from a lack of cohesion both from a
 
linguistic (different words for the same concepts) and from a theoretical point-of-view. My talk
 
will focus on those issues, with an emphasis on the latter. The aim is to pin the core features
 
of computational trust down, to obtain some necessary conditions each mathematical model
 
ought to fulfil in order to qualify as a model of computational trust. Doing so will also give me
 
the chance to clarify the terms involved, abstracting away from subtleties related to specific
 
applications. The contribution of this talk is, therefore, two-fold: it provides a guide for
 
newcomers to the subject, who will benefit from a linguistic clarification of the technical
 
language of the subject, and it provides a solid starting point for all who wish to pursue
 
research on computation trust.
 
 
 
'''SPEAKER BIO:'''
 
Mirko Tagliaferri is currently a Ph.D. student in Complexity Science at the University of Urbino in Italy. After
 
obtaining his Bachelor in philosophy in 2014 at the same university, with a thesis that focused on automatic inductive reasoning, he spent one year in Scotland, at the University of Glasgow, obtaining a Master Degree in analytical philosophy. His main research interests are formal models of complex systems and logical representations of epistemic notions. Under the supervision of Prof. Alessandro Aldini, he decided to focus his research on computational trust, trying to design new algebraic models for the notion that can improve our understanding of how trust can be employed in computational environments.

  • TITLE:  Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
    SPEAKER:  Nurul Momen  (Karlstad University)
    ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
