Providing Informational Support for Argumentation: The ISA Project

Fahri Yetim
2000 Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management  
This paper briefly presents the ISA project that addresses the issue of how argumentation processes can be supported by providing textual information from document databases.  ...  The conceptual integration of data-and knowledgebased technologies with discussion forums is illustrated, and the preliminary works for indexing documents as well as for providing search mechanism are  ...  Consider initiating a search for information in support of the current position, for example. In this paper, the essential of the research project ISA is presented.  ...

Implicit Knowledge in Argumentative Texts: An Annotated Corpus [article]

Maria Becker, Katharina Korfhage, Anette Frank
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We hypothesize that for argument analysis it will be beneficial to reconstruct this implied information.  ...  The outcome of our work is a carefully de-signed and richly annotated dataset, for which we then provide an in-depth analysis by investigating characteristic distributions and correlations of the assigned  ...  We expect it to be a useful starting point for automatically filling knowledge gaps in arguments, and we hope that it will inspire future research on argument analysis and implicit knowledge acquisition  ...

A critical review of PASBio's argument structures for biomedical verbs

K Bretonnel Cohen, Lawrence Hunter
2006 BMC Bioinformatics  
However, the proper set of propositions has yet to be determined. Recently, the PASBio project proposed a set of propositions and argument structures for biomedical verbs.  ...  This initial set of representations presents an opportunity for evaluating the suitability of predicate-argument structures as a scheme for representing verbal semantics in the biomedical domain.  ...  Conclusion Our findings support the hypothesis that predicate-argument structures, as illustrated by the PASBio project, are a viable formalism for building shallow semantic representations of biomedical  ...

Formalization of the ad hominem argumentation scheme

Douglas Walton

A dialogue model of belief

Douglas Walton
2010 Argument & Computation  
This paper offers a new model of belief by embedding the Peircean account of belief into a formal dialogue system that uses argumentation schemes for practical reasoning and abductive reasoning.  ...  It is argued that the new model overcomes the pervasive conflict in artificial intelligence between the belief-desire-intention model of reasoning and the commitment model.  ...  Acknowledgments The work in this paper was supported by a research grant, Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence and Law, from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.  ...
