    • Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web (A Position Statement) Olaf Hartig Database and Information Systems Research Group Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    • Existing Research on Trust in the (Semantic) Web Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 2
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust( )=? Focus on active entities (e.g. persons, agents, peers) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 3
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust( )=? What does it mean to trust an active entity? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 4
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust( )=? ● J.B. Barney and M.H. Hansen, 1994: Trust “is the mutual confidence that one's vulnerability will not be exploited.” What does it mean to trust an active entity? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 5
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust( )=? ● J.B. Barney and M.H. Hansen, 1994: Trust “is the mutual confidence that one's vulnerability will not be exploited.” ● L. Mui, M. Mohtashemi and A. Halberstadt, 2002: Trust is What does it mean the “subjective expectation an agent has about another's to trust an active entity? future behavior based on the history of their encounters.” Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 6

    • Existing Research on Trust Trust ( )=? How do we represent trust? ● Binary models (e.g. Golbeck and Hendler, 2004) ● Discrete models (e.g. Golbeck et al., 2003) e.g. highly trusted, moderately trusted, … ● Continuous models (Brondsema and Schamp, 2006) e.g. 0 … 1 Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 10
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust ( )=? How do we calculate trust? ● Reputation based models ● Network based models (Web of trust) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 11
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust ( )=? How do we calculate trust? e Reputation based models high oderat ● m trust ● Network tbased models (Web of trust) rust ? e.g. Guha et al., 2004; Ziegler and Lausen, 2004; Golbeck et al., 2003 Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 12
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust ( )=? What is the opposite of trust? (Recommended: Marsh and Dibben, 2005) Distrust ( )=? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 13
    • Existing Research on Trust Trust ( )=? What is the opposite of trust? (Recommended: Marsh and Dibben, 2005) ? Distrust ( )=? Representations of distrust: ● Part of the trust value (e.g. Brondsema and Schamp, 2006) e.g. -1 … 0 … 1 ● Separate value (e.g Victor et al., 2006, Guha et al., 2004) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 14

    • Shift Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 16
    • Let's ... make data the central subject of research on trust in the Semantic Web Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 17
    • Let's … conceive research on trust as an effort that fits in the area of information quality research Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 18
    • Let's … conceive research on trust as an effort that fits in the area of information quality research Common definition: Fitness for use of information Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 19
    • Let's … conceive research on trust as an effort that fits in the area of information quality research ● Multidimensional concept Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 20
    • Category* Criteria / Dimensions Intrinsic Accuracy, Objectivity, ... Contextual Completeness, Relevance, Timeliness, ... Representational Conciseness, Understandability, ... Accessibility Let's Availability, Security, ... … conceive research on trust as an effort and Strong, 1996 *Classification by Wang that fits in the area of information quality research ● Multidimensional concept Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 21

Let's Accessibility Availability, Security, ... … conceive research on trust as an effort and Strong, 1996 *Classification by Wang that fits in the area of information quality research ● Multidimensional concept ● Trustworthiness of data is another such IQ criterion Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 22
    • Trustworthiness of Data Definition: Subjective belief or disbelief in the truth of the information represented by this data Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 23
    • Focus on Semantic Web Data Trust ( )=? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 24
    • Focus on Semantic Web Data Trust ( )=? Trust ( )=? http://cia..../Albania http://.../unemp_rate 13.2 % Trust ( )=? Trust ( )=? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 25
    • Source-level Approaches Trust ( )=Trust ( ) e.g.: Golbeck and Hendler, 2006; Rowe and Butters, 2009; Zaihrayeu, da Silva, and McGuinness, 2005 Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 26
    • Source-level Approaches Trust ( )=Trust ( ) e.g.: Golbeck and Hendler, 2006; Rowe and Butters, 2009; Zaihrayeu, da Silva, and McGuinness, 2005 What if multiple sources provide this data? What if the data was republished as an aggregation? What about implicit statements inferred from source data? Are data sources the only relevant assessment criterion? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 27
    • Trustworthiness of Data Definition: Subjective belief or disbelief in the truth of the information represented by this data ● Decision to belief or disbelief affected by: 1. Provenance 2. Information quality 3. Other's opinion Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 28
    • Influence Category: Provenance Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 29
    • Influence Category: Provenance Trust ( )=? ● How was the creation of the data conducted? ● Who or what participated in the creation of the data and how much do I trust this participant? ● To what extend does the input from which the data was produced represents the truth? ● What happened to the data since its creation; how likely is a manipulation? Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 30
    • Provenance ● provenir (French), meaning to come from ● How a data object in its current state came to be ● This history may start before the creation of the object Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 31
    • Provenance ● Provenance graphs represent the provenance Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 32
    • Provenance ● Basically, everything in a provenance graph had / might have had an influence on the data object Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 33
    • Provenance ● Basically, everything in a provenance graph had / might have had an influence on the data object Trust( ) = fct( Trust( ), Trust( ), … ) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 34
    • Influence Category: Information Quality Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 35
    • Influence Category: IQ ● Other IQ criteria may affect our belief in the truth of data i.e. our trustworthiness assessment ● Example: lack of correctness, accuracy, or consistency ➔ Trustworthiness: ● Is a more abstract kind of IQ criteria ● Comprises multiple other criteria Trust( ) = fct( Accuracy( ), Currency( ), … ) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 36
    • Influence Category: IQ ● Relevancy may depend on context: Example: Completeness Trust ( ) ● Trust( ) = fct( Accuracy( ), Currency( ), … ) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 37
    • Influence Category: IQ ● Relevancy may depend on context: Example: Completeness Trust ( ) ● Trust ( ) ● Example: Currency Trust( ) = fct( Accuracy( ), Currency( ), … ) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 38
    • Influence Category: IQ ● Relevancy may depend on context: Example: Completeness Trust ( ) ● Trust ( ) ● Example: Currency ● Reflect relevancy by weighting the criteria Trust( ) = fct( λAcc·Accuracy( ), λCur·Currency( ), … ) Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 39
    • Influence Category: Other's Opinion Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 40
    • Influence Category: Opinions Trust( ) = fct( , , … ) ● Similar to recommendation systems ● Two options: ● Use opinions of trusted consumers only ● Weight opinions by the consumers' trustworthiness Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 41
    • Take-away Summary ● Focus of trust research for the Semantic Web: from an actor-centric view to a data-centric perspective ● Understand trustworthiness of Semantic Web data as an information quality criterion ● Categories of factors that affect the assessment: 1. Provenance 2. Information quality Trust ( ) 3. Other's opinion Olaf Hartig - Towards a Data-Centric Notion of Trust in the Semantic Web 42
