Abstract

As the use of automated negotiations becomes more mainstream, one key attribute that needs to be incorporated is a measure of a seller s trust or reliability. In this paper, we describe a combinatorial auction mechanism that allows buyers to specify their preferences over both an item and the seller s trustworthiness, and use it to generate a bid for a bundle of items. We consider some implications of generating a combined trust rating for a bundle of resources that are supplied by more than one seller. We show that allowing buyers to specify trust preferences leads to a higher overall utility and task completion rate than when compared with a model that does not consider seller trustworthiness.
