Trust is a fundamental issue in multi-agent systems, especially when they are applied in e-commence. The computational models of trust play an important role in determining who and how to interact in open and dynamic environments. To this end, a computation trust model is proposed in which the confidence information based on direct prior interactions with the target agent and the reputation information from trust network are used. In this way, agents can autonomously deal with deception and identify trustworthy parties in multi-agent systems. The ontological property of trust is also considered in the model. A case study is provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed model.
