I am grateful to the Academy for all the help. Many ideas of this chapter have been  ...  The search for (types of) explanatory hypotheses should be preferential. The search should aim to create, as Peirce nicely put it (Peirce, 1957, p.254) , "good hypotheses".  ...

Harmonization of conflicting medical opinions using argumentation protocols and textual entailment - a case study on Parkinson disease [article]

Adrian Groza, Madalina Mand Nagy
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Medications are available for the management of its symptoms, but the exact cause of the disease is unknown and there is currently no cure on the market.  ...  To better understand the relations between new findings and current medical knowledge, we need tools able to analyse published medical papers based on natural language processing and tools capable to identify  ...  A multi-agent environment was considered for this purpose and fuzzy logic was used for the quantification of opinions and relation between them.  ...

Annotating Patterns of Reasoning about Medical Theories of Causation in Vaccine Cases: Toward a Type System for Arguments

Vern Walker, Karina Vazirova, Cass Sanford
2014 Proceedings of the First Workshop on Argumentation Mining  
Moreover, there must be a reliable and accurate method for classifying the arguments found in natural language legal documents.  ...  The pattern types and examples presented here demonstrate the difficulty of developing a type or annotation system for characterizing the logically important patterns of reasoning.  ...  We conclude by discussing our working hypotheses for developing a type system for arguments, as well as discussing prior related work.  ...
