A brief description of the project:

The trust for automation using the Internet of Things (IoT) across the world requires assessing the trustworthiness of an interactive IoT agent on the fly using the footprint left as big data in both physical and virtual spaces.  Existing approaches lack in adopting an effective principle for measuring trust. These approaches exploit the social interactions, relationships and the other available information.

In this project, using big data, an innovative approach for the trustworthiness measure of an IoT agent based on the ethical model(s) and other well accepted and intuitive ways used in measuring the trust for the real-world applications will be formulated.  The outcome of this project will increase the speed of automation and promote reliable and cost-effective solutions for many industrial and government sectors related to security, data forensic, transportation, water, financial and health.
