This article presents the results of experiments performed with agents based on an operalization of an information-theoretic model for trust. Experiments have been performed with the ART test-bed, a test domain for trust and reputation aiming to provide transparent and recognizable standards. An agent architecture based on information theory is described in the paper. According to a set of experimental results, information theory is shown to be appropriate for the modelling of trust in multi-agent systems.
