The goal of this project was to examine Sierra and Debenham's information-based model for trust. This has been done in a theoretical way and in a practical way. First, a general overview of models of trust and reputation was given, then the information-based model has been discussed and finally it was extended on some parts. This resulted in some suggestions to improve the model and in two new modules in the model: one about updating from reputation information and one about updating from social information. For the practical examination of the model, an agent based on the information-based trust model has been implemented. Several experiments in the ART test-bed have been performed with this information-based agent. In general, the agent performed well in comparison to other agents and the information-based approach seems to be appropriate for the modelling of trust.
