Argumentation for Access Control [chapter]

Guido Boella, Joris Hulstijn, Leendert van der Torre
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that reasoning about the feasibility of goals requires mixed goal-plan arguments, and we show how to formalize the plan arguments in Dung's framework without adapting the notion of defence.  ...  We build on Amgoud's argumentation framework for plan arguments, which is based on an adaptation of Dung's notion of defence.  ...  First we define an argument as a pair of a goal-plan argument and a literal in the goal set of the goal-plan argument.  ...

Argumentation logic for the flexible enactment of goal-based medical guidelines

Maria Adela Grando, David Glasspool, Aziz Boxwala
2012 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
The prototype includes: (1) an argumentation-based decision support system which can be used both to represent medical decisions within guidelines, and to dynamically choose the most suitable plans to  ...  Conclusions: The framework has shown flexibility and adaptability in (1) advising and tailoring health care based on a health organization's resources and a patient's particular medical condition, (2)  ...  Then the clinician can choose a fixed-dose combination of a non-generic ACEI drug and a non-generic ARB drug.  ...

Symbolic argumentation for decision making under uncertainty

S. Das
2005 2005 7th International Conference on Information Fusion  
We present a generic argumentation-based framework for making decisions under uncertainty by fusing knowledge from multiple sources.  ...  In this framework, arguments for decision options are expressed in a high-level knowledge representation language incorporating subjective probabilities from decision makers representing the argument strengths  ...  Such an argumentation based framework is functionally more general than classical rule-based experts systems because: 1) It deals with more expressive knowledge in the form of arguments 'for' and 'against  ...

1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The topics of argumentation among the planning agents and common conflicts in the ordering of defaults are discussed by means of a real planning example.  ...  concepts of credulous and skeptical conclusions of an issue.  ...  This work draws substantially on valuable discussions with John Bigham and Kelvyn Scrupps, when the author was with Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London.  ...

An argumentation based approach for practical reasoning

Iyad Rahwan, Leila Amgoud
2006 Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '06  
We build on recent work on argumentation frameworks for generating desires and plans.  ...  We provide a rich instantiation of Dung's abstract argumentation framework for (i) generating consistent desires; and (ii) generating consistent plans for achieving these desires.  ...  Amgoud [1] presented an argumentation framework for generating consistent plans from a given set of desires and planning rules.  ...

Argumentation Based Modelling of Embedded Agent Dialogues [chapter]

Yannis Dimopoulos, Antonis C. Kakas, Pavlos Moraitis
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It proposes a specific structure for the supporting information accompanying the arguments that agents exchange during a dialogue, it defines formally how this information relates to the agent theory,  ...  This allows the formal definition of necessary and sufficient initiation and acceptance conditions of licit dialectical shifts that are necessary for the modelling of embedded agent dialogues.  ...  For the planning capability P P lan any generated plan, plan(G), itself forms supporting information in the form of future actions for the arguments that derive the goal G.  ...

generation of agent's goals.  ...  It is based on argumentation techniques for both deliberation and for selecting subsets of compatible actions, possibly in presence of uncertainty.  ...  In our general framework, we suppose that an argument is built for supporting a desire as soon as the conditions on which it depends hold.  ...

A natural language bipolar argumentation approach to support users in online debate interactions†

Elena Cabrio, Serena Villata
2013 Argument & Computation  
The originality of the proposed framework lies in the following point: natural language debates are analyzed and the arguments are automatically extracted.  ...  Our paper addresses this problem by proposing and evaluating the use of natural language techniques to generate the arguments.  ...  Finally, we combine the two approaches, i.e., textual entailment and abstract argumentation theory, in a framework whose aim is to (i) generate the abstract arguments from the online debates through TE  ...

Dealing with Incompatibilities among Procedural Goals under Uncertainty

Mariela Morveli Espinoza, Juan Carlos Nieves, Ayslan Possebom, Cesar Augusto Tacla
2019 Inteligencia Artificial  
We measure the strength of these arguments in order to determine the set of compatible goals.  ...  The second way for calculating the strength of the argument is based on the cost of the plans (regarding the necessary resources) and the preference of the goals associated with the plans.  ...  Goals selection In this section, we present an argumentation framework which integrates all the arguments and attacks in a unique framework and will be used to determine the set of compatible goals.  ...

Improving performances in a company when collective strategy comes up against individual interests

Abdelhak Imoussaten, Francois Trousset, Jacky Montmain
2011 Proceedings of the 7th conference of the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT-2011)  
An argumentation framework is proposed to model this argumented negotiation for improvement design.  ...  In complex systems, many actions may be envisaged to achieve the required levels of performance. A fuzzy representation is used to model the relationships between objectives and actions.  ...  First, a fusion model is proposed to combine effects of actions upon performances and then, assess the global worth of an action plan.  ...
