Special Issue Call for Papers:

This special issue invites contributors to elaborate on all aspects of trust in the context of intelligent machines. We wish to raise key questions for further research in this emerging area and identify suitable methods for addressing them. The special issue will stress the importance of the interdisciplinarity of the topic. Therefore, methods and perspectives may originate from artificial intelligence, cognitive science, economics, evolutionary anthropology, experimental psychology, philosophy, or social science.

The first long-term aim is to develop an understanding of principal mechanisms of trust in the interaction of humans with machines and among machines. The second long-term aim is to apply this understanding to the design and construction of socio-technical systems.
