In the proposed design architecture, the cloud system architecture leverage software services in a way where both, the main systems and sub-modules perform commensurably to achieve trust assurance. The evaluation of the system architecture exposes the applicability of the proposed architecture and how it augments the virtual collaboration on Cloud for trust assurance. and explanation of computing science through, the conceptual analysis of the available relevant literature on system theory and Latour's actor-network theory. The conceptual framework is applied to assess information security and artificial intelligence of expert systems (AI) and electronic voting systems (security). Lastly, this study concludes with the outlining the importance of awareness of ethical implications of informed and related sharing of responsibilities.
