From Argument Search to Argumentative Dialogue: A Topic-independent Approach to Argument Acquisition for Dialogue Systems

Niklas Rach, Carolin Schindler, Isabel Feustel, Johannes Daxenberger, Wolfgang Minker, Stefan Ultes
2021 SIGDIAL Conferences  
We evaluate the approach with a state of the art search engine and a recently introduced dialogue model in an extensive user study with respect to the dialogue coherence.  ...  To address this issue, we propose a combination of argumentative dialogue systems with argument search technology that enables a system to discuss any topic on which the search engine is able to find suitable  ...  Number 376696351, as part of the Priority Program "Robust Argumentation Machines (RA-TIO)" (SPP-1999).  ...

Arguing Using Opponent Models [chapter]

Nir Oren, Timothy J. Norman
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Computing the utility for each possible line of argument is thus done using a variant of M* search, which in itself is an enhancement of min-max search.  ...  After describing the M* algorithm we show how it may be adapted to the argumentation domain, and then study what enhancements are possible for more specific types of dialogue.  ...  Conclusions In this paper, we showed how an agent may decide on which utterances to advance in the course of an argument by making use of an opponent model.  ...

Computer-assisted safety argument review – a dialectics approach

Tangming Yuan, Tim Kelly, Tianhua Xu
2014 Argument & Computation  
User-based evaluations of the system suggest the usefulness of the dialectics approach to safety argument review. The evaluation also sheds light on the future development of such an application.  ...  There has been increasing use of argument-based approaches in the development of safetycritical systems. Within this approach, a safety case plays a key role in the system development life cycle.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank all the participants who took part in the evaluation of the Argument Review Tool as well as research and teaching staff of the Department of Computer Science at the University  ...

Finally, we evaluate our system using a typical movie ticket booking task and show that the dialogue simulator is an essential component of the system that leads to over 50% improvement in turn-level action  ...  The components of this system are trained in a data-driven manner, but instead of collecting annotated conversations for training, we generate them using a novel dialogue simulator based on a few seed  ...  schema turned entities present in the full dialogue context of entities and actions that the dialogue system will that includes the current user utterance.  ...

Dave the debater: a retrieval-based and generative argumentative dialogue agent

Dieu Thu Le, Cam-Tu Nguyen, Kim Anh Nguyen
2018 Proceedings of the 5th Workshop on Argument Mining  
In this paper, we explore the problem of developing an argumentative dialogue agent that can be able to discuss with human users on controversial topics.  ...  We describe two systems that use retrieval-based and generative models to make argumentative responses to the users.  ...  Experiments and results In this section, we report the first evaluation results we have so far for both retrieval-based and generative argumentative dialogue system.  ...

Introduction to the Special Issue

Fabrizio Macagno, Alice Toniolo
2022 Informal Logic  
Through his papers and books, Walton redefined the boundaries not only of argumentation theory, but also logic and philosophy.  ...  He was a philosopher in the sense that his interest was developing theoretical models that can help explain reality, and more importantly interact with it.  ...  Fabrizio Macagno would like to thank the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia for the research grants PTDC/FER-FIL/28278/2017 and UIDB/00183/2020.  ...

A Dialogue Mechanism for Public Argumentation Using Conversation Policies [chapter]

Yuqing Tang, Simon Parsons
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The backbone protocol maintains the set of arguments put forward by the agents, and each agent uses a preagreed argumentation theory to extract the set of public beliefs from the context.  ...  In artificial intelligence in general, argumentation-based reasoning has been used to unify a number of approaches to nonmonotonic reasoning [11] , to reason about uncertainty [17], to reason coherently  ...  The views and conclusions contained in this document are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the US Army Research Laboratory  ...

Challenges for a CBR framework for argumentation in open MAS

Stella Heras, Vicente Botti, Vicente Julián
2009 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
In this paper, we have reviewed these approaches and identified the current contributions of the CBR methodology in this area.  ...  Some approaches that apply CBR to manage argumentation in MAS have been proposed in the literature. These improve agents' argumentation skills by allowing them to reason and learn from experiences.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was partially supported by CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 under grant CSD2007-00022 and by the Spanish government and FEDER funds under TIN2006-14630-C0301 project.  ...

Argue to agree: A case-based argumentation approach

Stella Heras, Jaume Jordán, Vicente Botti, Vicente Julián
2013 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
Argue to agree: A case-based argumentation approach. Abstract The capability of reaching agreements is a necessary feature that large computer systems where agents interoperate must include.  ...  In this work, we propose a case-based argumentation approach for Multi-Agent Systems where agents reach agreements by arguing and improve their argumentation skills from experience.  ...  Testing the Social Context The ability of the framework to represent the social context of the system has also been evaluated.  ...
