Title: CROWDSOURCING OF TRUSTWORTHINESS INDICATORS
Abstract:
Systems and methods are described herein for calculating trust score based on crowdsourced information. The trust score may reflect the trustworthiness, reputation, membership, status, and/or influence of an entity in a particular community or in relation to another entity. The trust score may be calculated based on data received from a variety of public and private data sources, including "crowdsourced" information. For example, users may provide and/or comment on attributes, characteristics, features, or any other information about another user. These inputs may serve to both validate the available data as well as provide additional information about the user that may not be otherwise available. The participation of the "crowd" may form a type of validation in itself and give comfort to second-order users, who know that the crowd can spectate and make contributions to the attributes, characteristics, features, and other information.
