Eliciting Expert Advice in Service-Oriented Computing.
In, Proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Agent-Mediated Electronic Commerce (AMEC 2009), Budapest, Hungary,
We consider a setting where a consumer would like to elicit independent but costly reports from third-party experts about the reliability of a number of service providers. These reports can be of variable accuracy, but more accurate reports will be more costly to produce, and the consumer can fuse reports from several experts to choose the provider with the highest probability of success.We explore a number of mechanisms to address this setting, including scoring rules, and indicate the problems in obtaining both truth telling and inducing the experts to produce accurate reports. We present a partial solution to this problem, and discuss remaining challenges.
