Speaker: 
Ronny Siebes

The goal for me to visit IIIA was, besides enjoying the mountains and food, to investigate how you deal with trust/reputation/authority stuff and after that see how it can improve the Discovery Service in the Open-Knowledge system. In this talk I try to do two things: (1) briefly describe the OpenKnowledge system and the discovery service and (2) propose a model for improvement of the Discovery Service based on a distributed 'pagerank' alike algorithm over DHTs (distributed hash tables).
