Phillip Taylor is a research fellow in Computer Science at The University of Warwick, working on the Justified Assessments of Service Provider Reputation (JASPR) and Towards Autonomy Smart and Connected Control - Cooperative Car (TASCC). He received a PhD in 2015 from the University of Warwick, investigating data mining of vehicle telemetry, in particular for driver monitoring and focusing on feature selection. As part of the TASCC project, he is now working on compression of vehicle telemetry data and is involved in work on transfer learning and pattern of life analysis.
As part of the JASPR project, he has also developed models for assessing and communicating trust and reputation information from different perspectives with different observation capabilities. He has produced a unifying abstraction of reputation models that encompasses several existing reputation systems. His work has shown how reputation systems and their capabilities in this abstraction can be combined, including context awareness, preferences, and subjectivity. In particular, he has developed a general machine learning reputation system. He has also contributed to the explanation of reputation assessments to end users, and context aware reputation as part of this project.
