Trust as a distributed concern

This paper - Towards a master narrative for trust in autonomous systems: Trust as a distributed concern - reports on how the concept of Trust as a Distributed concern.

The premise of the paper, which arose as part of the research we undertook for the Trust me? Iā€™m an autonomous machine project, is that how, why, and when we trust certain things are extremely context specific - distributed across perspectives, time, and space. The paper describes how we might start thinking about this, and ultimately is pointing towards how we might design strategies to help cope with these complexities.

The paper builds upon this full workshop report, which informed the work. Also see this post about the project and the video below for further information about this work.
