Reasoning about preferences in argumentation frameworks

Sanjay Modgil
2009 Artificial Intelligence  
We then define and study application of the full range of Dung's extensional semantics to the extended framework, and study special classes of the extended framework.  ...  The abstract nature of Dung's seminal theory of argumentation accounts for its widespread application as a general framework for various species of non-monotonic reasoning, and, more generally, reasoning  ...  Acknowledgements This work was funded by the EU FP6-IST-002307 ASPIC project. I would like to thank Martin Caminada for early discussions that inspired development of the ideas in the paper.  ...

An Investigation of Argumentation Framework Characteristics [chapter]

Josh Murphy, Isabel Sassoon, Michael Luck, Elizabeth Black
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We investigate the relationship between the structural properties of argumentation frameworks and their argument-based characteristics, examining the characteristics of structures of Dung-style frameworks  ...  , and on the likelihood that the addition of some new argument will affect the acceptability of an existing argument, all characteristics that are known to affect the performance of argumentation-based  ...  This characteristic is known to affect performance of argument solvers [8] ; 2. The proportion of argument subsets of the framework that determine some topic argument to be acceptable.  ...

An Argumentation Framework Based on Conditional Priorities [chapter]

Quoc Bao Vo
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our work reveals some interesting problems to conditional priority-based argumentation and establishes the fundamental properties of these frameworks.  ...  Our approach is based on a wellestablished line of research on assumption-based argumentation frameworks and defeasible reasoning.  ...  The approach we introduce in this paper, bearing in mind the above problems, combines the following characteristics: 1. It employs an argumentation framework as the underlying engine for reasoning.  ...

What Is a Reasonable Argumentation Semantics? [chapter]

Sarah Alice Gaggl, Sebastian Rudolph, Michaël Thomazo
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In view of the plethora of different argumentation semantics, we consider the question what the essential properties of a "reasonable" semantics are.  ...  We discuss three attempts of such a characterization, based on computational complexity, logical expressivity and invariance under partial duplication, which are satisfied by most, if not all, known semantics  ...  As this Festschrift is dedicated to Gerd Brewka's 60 th birthday, we want to congratulate him as well as thank him for his inspiring work and the fruitful and enjoyable discussions.  ...

An Ontology-driven Framework for Supporting Complex Decision Process [article]

Junyi Chai, James N.K. Liu
2011 arXiv   pre-print
The study proposes a framework of ONTOlogy-based Group Decision Support System (ONTOGDSS) for decision process which exhibits the complex structure of decision-problem and decision-group.  ...  It is capable of reducing the complexity of problem structure and group relations.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors would like to acknowledge the partial supports from the GRF 5237/08E of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  ...

Argumentation in the View of Modal Logic [chapter]

Davide Grossi
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The present paper applies well-investigated modal logics to provide formal foundations to specific fragments of argumentation theory.  ...  This logic-driven analysis of argumentation allows: first, to systematize several results of argumentation theory reformulating them within suitable formal languages; second, to import several techniques  ...  This study has been funded under the NWO VENI grant 639.021.816. The author wishes to thank Sanjay Modgil for the inspiring conversation that sparked this study.  ...

Teaching Evidence-Based Writing Using Corporate Blogs

Chien-Ching Lee
2013 IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication  
In addition, the framework helped some students to transfer their understanding of the characteristics of EMBC from corporate blogs to emails.  ...  The critique also had to conform to the characteristics of academic writing where academic writing is thesis-driven; requires a logical and systematic development of ideas with citations; and uses an objective  ...

Analogy, Similarity, and the Periodic Table of Arguments

Jean H. M. Wagemans
2018 Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric  
The aim of this paper is to indicate the systematic place of arguments based on the concept of analogy within the theoretical framework of the Periodic Table of Arguments, a new method for describing and  ...  The paper begins with an inventory of existing approaches to arguments based on analogy, similarity and adjacent concepts.  ...  The conclusion and the premise of such an argument can be expressed as follows: Example 1 There is life on Mars, because there is life on Earth.  ...

A Formalisation of Abstract Argumentation in Higher-Order Logic [article]

Alexander Steen, David Fuenmayor
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We present an approach for representing abstract argumentation frameworks based on an encoding into classical higher-order logic.  ...  This enables the formal analysis and verification of meta-theoretical properties as well as the flexible generation of extensions and labellings with respect to well-known argumentation semantics.  ...  in HOL by predicates (i.e., terms with functional types returning an element of type o), the notion of characteristic function F A of an argumentation framework [37] is actually an extensionally equivalent  ...

An Efficient Framework for Development of Task-Oriented Dialog Systems in a Smart Home Environment

Youngmin Park, Sangwoo Kang, Jungyun Seo
2018 Sensors  
However, most of these studies are focused on the individual modules of such a system, and there is an evident lack of research on a dialog framework that can integrate and manage the entire dialog system  ...  To verify the practicality of the framework, an experiment was conducted in which developers without any previous experience in developing a dialog system developed task-oriented dialog systems using the  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Approximating operators and semantics for abstract dialectical frameworks

Hannes Strass
2013 Artificial Intelligence  
We provide a systematic in-depth study of the semantics of abstract dialectical frameworks (ADFs), a recent generalisation of Dung's abstract argumentation frameworks.  ...  We use polynomial, faithful and modular translations to relate the formalisms, and our results show that both abstract argumentation frameworks and abstract dialectical frameworks are at most as expressive  ...  He is also grateful to several anonymous reviewers for providing valuable feedback on earlier versions of (parts of) this document.  ...

Modeling Our Understanding, Understanding Our Models - The Case of Inheritance in FRBR

Allen H. Renear, Yunseon Choi
2007 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
We believe these observations reveal an ongoing uncertainty about the nature of bibliographic entities as well as difficulties in maintaining a clear and exact understanding of the models we are using  ...  However there are interesting variations between FRBR's formal model and the narrative expositions of FRBR's authors and explicators -that is, between the formal model and the framework as more broadly  ...  The last argument includes an account of why the notion that inheritance exists in FRBR (and similar modeling frameworks) is so strong, and shows how the advantages supposedly secured by inheritance are  ...

Probabilistic Abstract Dialectical Frameworks [chapter]

Sylwia Polberg, Dragan Doder
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our goal is to model situations when the requirements to accept an argument might be uncertain. We achieve it by assigning not a single acceptance condition to an argument, but a number of them.  ...  Thus, many of their generalizations were created, including the probabilistic argumentation frameworks (PrAFs) and the abstract dialectical frameworks (ADFs).  ...  ADF conditions provide a bigger point of view and express the general requirements of an argument to hold.  ...
