Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Predict uncertainty is critic in decision making process, especially for the complex systems. This chapter aims to discuss the theory involved in Self-Organizing Map (SOM) and its learning process, SOM based Trust Learning Algorithm (STL), SOM based Trust Estimation Algorithm (STL) as well as features of generated trust patterns. Several patterns are discussed within context. Both algorithms and how they are processed have been described in detail. It is found that SOM based Trust Estimation algorithm is the core algorithm that help agent make trustworthy or untrustworthy decisions.
