Autonomic Systems

Trustworthy Open Self-Organising Systems

Editors: Reif, W., Anders, G., Seebach, H., Jan-Philipp, S., André, E., Hähner, J., Müller-Schloer, C., Ungerer, T. (Eds.)

  • Investigates in which way social concepts, such as trust, can be used in the course of the design and the implementation of technical self-organizing systems in order to increase their efficiency and robustness
  • These investigations significantly distinguishes the books contributions from existing publications in the field of Organic Computing and self-organizing systems
  • Contributions will range from methods for controlling emergent behavior over trust-based self-organization and self-optimization algorithms as well as adaptive trust-based user interfaces to software engineering guidelines for open self-organizing systems

About this book

This book treats the computational use of social concepts as the focal point for the realisation of a novel class of socio-technical systems, comprising smart grids, public display environments, and grid computing.

These systems are composed of technical and human constituents that interact with each other in an open environment. Heterogeneity, large scale, and uncertainty in the behaviour of the constituents and the environment are the rule rather than the exception.

Ensuring the trustworthiness of such systems allows their technical constituents to interact with each other in a reliable, secure, and predictable way while their human users are able to understand and control them.

 

"Trustworthy Open Self-Organising Systems" contains a wealth of knowledge, from trustworthy self-organisation mechanisms, to trust models, methods to measure a user's trust in a system, a discussion of social concepts beyond trust, and insights into the impact open self-organising systems will have on society.
