Computing Argumentative Explanations in Bipolar Argumentation Frameworks

Zhiwei Zeng, Chunyan Miao, Cyril Leung, Zhiqi Shen, Jing Jih Chin
2019 PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRTIETH AAAI CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE TWENTY-EIGHTH INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE  
Here, we focus on argumentative explanations in Abstract Bipolar Argumentation.  ...  We also show how to compute the explanations with Bipolar Dispute Trees.  ...  (cont'd) In Fig. 1 , the CE computed from the abstract dispute tree in (2) is {a, e}. The SE computed from the bipolar dispute tree in (3) is {a, e, f, g}.  ...

Computing ideal sceptical argumentation

P.M. Dung, P. Mancarella, F. Toni
2007 Artificial Intelligence  
The procedures are adapted from (variants of) corresponding procedures for computing the credulous admissible semantics for assumption-based argumentation, proposed in [P.M. Dung, R.A. Kowalski, F.  ...  We present two dialectic procedures for the sceptical ideal semantics for argumentation. The first procedure is defined in terms of dispute trees, for abstract argumentation frameworks.  ...  Computationally, the use of assumption-based argumentation allows to exploit the fact that different arguments can share the same assumptions and thus avoid recomputation in many cases and the need to  ...

Fair and Argumentative Language Modeling for Computational Argumentation [article]

Carolin Holtermann, Anne Lauscher, Simone Paolo Ponzetto
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Finally, we analyze the potential impact of language model debiasing on the performance in argument quality prediction, a downstream task of computational argumentation.  ...  Although much work in NLP has focused on measuring and mitigating stereotypical bias in semantic spaces, research addressing bias in computational argumentation is still in its infancy.  ...  We hope that our results and our novel AB BA resource will fuel more research on fair computational argumentation.  ...

Computing argumentation in logic programming

K. Kakas
1999 Journal of Logic and Computation  
In this paper we develop an abstract computational framework where various argumentation semantics can be computed via di erent parametric variations of a simple basic proof theory.  ...  These proof procedures are obtained by adopting speci c search strategies and ways of computing attacks in the particular argumentation framework.  ...  In this paper, we develop a general computational model for computing the argumentation-theoretic formulation of (most) semantics for LP.  ...

The Argument against Quantum Computers [article]

Gil Kalai
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We give a computational complexity argument against the feasibility of quantum computers.  ...  Our work supports the "physical Church thesis" studied by Pitowsky (1990) and follows his vision of using abstract ideas about computation to study the performance of actual physical computers.  ...  The argument against quantum computers The argument In brief, the argument against quantum computers is based on a computational complexity argument for why NISQ computers cannot demonstrate quantum  ...

Computational Models of Rhetorical Argument [chapter]

Jim Crosswhite, John Fox, Chris Reed, Theodore Scaltsas, Simone Stumpf
2003 Argumentation Library  
Dung-style abstract argumentation theory centers on argumentation frameworks and acceptance functions. The latter take as input a framework and return sets of labelings.  ...  This methodology assumes full awareness of the arguments relevant to the evaluation. There are two reasons why this is not satisfactory.  ...  This is a pair consisting of a set of arguments and an attack relation. The arguments are modeled as abstract entities, and the attack relation encodes conflicts between arguments.  ...

Argotario: Computational Argumentation Meets Serious Games [article]

Ivan Habernal, Raffael Hannemann, Christian Pollak, Christopher Klamm, Patrick Pauli, Iryna Gurevych
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Fallacious arguments, omnipresent in argumentative discourse, can be deceptive, manipulative, or simply leading to 'wrong moves' in a discussion.  ...  Despite their importance, argumentation scholars and NLP researchers with focus on argumentation quality have not yet investigated fallacies empirically.  ...  First, it is a software tool for computational linguistics research, as it focuses on fallacies in argumentative discourse, an important part of qualitative criteria in computational argumentation.  ...
