Abstract

In recent developments, norms have become an important entity that is considered in agent-based system’s design. Norms are not only able to organize and coordinate the actions and behaviour of agents but have a direct impact on the achievement of agents’ goals. Therefore, an agent in a multi-agent system requires a mechanism to detect the right norms and adopt them. For this reason, the agent needs a mechanism to evaluate the trust in each norm it detects. On the other hand, the impact of norms on the agent’s goal and its plan may be at risk ensuing from the probability of positive or negative results when the agent adopts the right or wrong norms. In this paper, we propose a norm’s trust model that could be utilized in norms adoption or rejection. Ultimately, we determine the benefits of adopting the norm as a consequence of a favourable trust value as an additional factor in norms’ adoption.
