A Corpus for Modeling User and Language Effects in Argumentation on Online Debating

Esin Durmus, Claire Cardie
2019 Proceedings of the 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
Existing argumentation datasets have succeeded in allowing researchers to develop computational methods for analyzing the content, structure and linguistic features of argumentative text.  ...  They have been much less successful in fostering studies of the effect of "user" traits -- characteristics and beliefs of the participants -- on the debate/argument outcome as this type of user information  ...  The views and conclusions contained herein are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies or endorsements, either expressed or implied, of NSF  ...

Modelling a Receiver's Position to Persuasive Arguments [chapter]

Hien Nguyen, Judith Masthoff, Peter Edwards
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Via a series of experiments, this paper provides insight into how the receiver's position can be modelled computationally, as a function of the strength, feature importance, and position of arguments in  ...  Social psychology shows that the effect of a persuasive argument depends on characteristics of the person to be persuaded, including the person's involvement with the topic and the discrepancy between  ...  ranges from 0 (not important at all) to 6 (extremely important).  ...

An Abstract Framework for Modeling Argumentation in Virtual Communities

Tudor Groza, Siegfried Handschuh, John G. Breslin, Stefan Decker
2009 International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking  
Classic argumentative discussions can be found in a variety of domains from traditional scientific publishing to today's modern social software.  ...  In this article, the authors describe an abstract model for argumentation which captures the semantics independently of the domain.  ...  There exist an important number of argumentation models, most of them following the direction given by the IBIS methodology (Kunz et. al, 1970) .  ...

Towards Understanding Persuasion in Computational Argumentation [article]

Esin Durmus
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Then, we propose models to understand the role of the audience's prior beliefs on their perception of arguments.  ...  Finally, we explore the importance of incorporating contextual information to predict argument impact and show improvements compared to encoding only the text of the arguments.  ...  We further propose context-aware models to measure the importance of pragmatic context in predicting the impact of the arguments.  ...

The computational philosophy: simulation as a core philosophical method

Conor Mayo-Wilson, Kevin J. S. Zollman
2021 Synthese  
Second, devising and coding computational models instill good philosophical habits of mind.  ...  First, philosophers should use simulations for many of the same reasons we currently use thought experiments.  ...  Finally, when comparing computational models to other forms of argumentation, it's important to distinguish apparent from actual validation.  ...
