The trust project involved the development of the DART trust model and its evaluation in different market places. Analytical properties of DART were established and led to the development of new terms for describing hard and soft trust in multi-agent systems. Our work appeared in AAAI and IJCAI; a full description of DART appears in the Computational Intelligence journal.
