In a distributed environment in which multiple self-interested entities interact, knowing who to interact with is an important decision to make. Reputation is one metric to help with the decision. However, when there are a massive number of entities, a centralized reputation management doesn't scale up. We introduce bayesian reputation game where players have only private information about others with no centralized management. We design a game in a way that the reputation values are used as a part of payoffs and analyze the game when it is infinitely repeated. We define two types of interactions where one is honest and the other is dishonest. We show that the true cooperation is sustained when the game is repeated even when we applied dynamic type changes. As a result, the average reputation values of players increase over time and converge. The game models the real world situation well and it provides a guideline for designing distributed entities from software agents to Internet of things where no centralized authority exists. © 2014 IEEE.

The study attempts to investigate the reason of why girls with an interest in IT in high-school do not choose career in IT. Here we present qualitative results from the focus group interview. The focus group consisted of eight young women, who were actively involved in extra curriculum education in IT area during their final years at school, but have chosen different profession after. As a result of the interview we have identified the following factors influencing respondents' decision for not choosing career in IT: self-perceived lack of aptitude to succeed in IT, unwillingness to deal with numbers, self-perceived insufficient knowledge for admission for IT degree, parental influence, stereotypes of IT profession, unattractive image of IT specialist, uninteresting subjects of the IT program. Finally we have suggested actions in order to make IT profession more attractive for young women. © 2014 IEEE.
