On a Formal Treatment of Deception in Argumentative Dialogues [chapter]

Kazuko Takahashi, Shizuka Yokohama
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper formalizes a dialogue that includes dishonest arguments in persuasion.  ...  We show how a dialogue including dishonest arguments proceeds according to the protocol and discuss a condition for a dishonest argument to be accepted without being revealed.  ...  We have also discussed the conditions for an agent to succeed in persuasion without her dishonesty being revealed. Generalization of these conditions is one of our future works.  ...

Human-Agent Decision-making: Combining Theory and Practice

Sarit Kraus
2016 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
For bargaining we will study game-theory based equilibrium agents and for argumentation we will discuss logic-based argumentation theory.  ...  We will also consider security games and persuasion games and will discuss the benefits of using equilibrium based agents.  ...  We are considering the agent-human interactions as being a strategic activity [14] .  ...

And Lead Us (Not) into Persuasion…? Persuasive Technology and the Ethics of Communication

Andreas Spahn
2011 Science and Engineering Ethics  
The paper develops ethical guidelines for the development and usage of persuasive technologies (PT) that can be derived from applying discourse ethics to this type of technologies.  ...  The application of discourse ethics is of particular interest for PT, since 'persuasion' refers to an act of communication that might be interpreted as holding the middle between 'manipulation' and 'convincing  ...  between human agents going on (1).  ...

Toward an experimental account of argumentation: the case of the slippery slope and the ad hominem arguments

Marco Lillo-Unglaube, Andrés Canales-Johnson, Gorka Navarrete, Claudio Fuentes Bravo
2014 Frontiers in Psychology  
We think the current challenge for psychology is to bring together the cognitive and normative accounts of argumentation.  ...  Argumentation is a crucial component of our lives.  ...  Thus, strategic maneuvering enables the parties to maintain the persuasiveness in the discussion without neglecting the standards of the argumentation.  ...

Towards a framework for computational persuasion with applications in behaviour change1

Anthony Hunter
2018 Argument & Computation  
Computational persuasion is the study of formal models of dialogues involving arguments and counterarguments, of user models, and strategies, for APSs.  ...  Persuasion is an activity that involves one party trying to induce another party to believe something or to do something. It is an important and multifaceted human facility.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to the anonymous reviewers for helpful feedback for improving the paper. This research is part-funded by EPSRC grant EP/N008294/1 Framework for Computational Persuasion.  ...

Handling Enthymemes in Time-Limited Persuasion Dialogs [chapter]

Florence Dupin de Saint-Cyr
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This protocol allows the use of enthymemes concerning the support or conclusion of the argument, enables the agent to retract or re-specify an argument.  ...  The notion of incomplete argument is explicited and a protocol is proposed to regulate the utterances of a persuasion dialog with respect to the three criteria of consistency, non-redundancy and listening  ...  Acknowledgments The author thanks Pierre Bisquert for the useful reference to Schopenhauer.  ...

A First Attempt to Allow Enthymemes in Persuasion Dialogs

Florence Dupin de Saint-Cyr
2011 2011 22nd International Workshop on Database and Expert Systems Applications  
We propose a protocol that enables the agent to enunciate statements or to utter maybe incomplete arguments, retract or re-precise them.  ...  This paper is a first attempt to define a protocol able to handle enthymemes in a persuasion dialog.  ...  In order to be able to do so, we should first dispose of a persuasion dialog system allowing agents (artificial or human) to exchange arguments and able to decide the winner.  ...

Strategic Dialogical Argumentation Using Multi-criteria Decision Making with Application to Epistemic and Emotional Aspects of Arguments [chapter]

Emmanuel Hadoux, Anthony Hunter, Jean-Baptiste Corrégé
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To support this, we present a framework with implementation for multi-criteria decision making for strategic argumentation.  ...  Multiple dimensions of information about the other agents (e.g., the belief and likely emotional response that the other agents might have in the arguments) might be used to make this strategic choice.  ...  Acknowledgements This research is part funded by EPSRC Project EP/N008294/1 (Framework for Computational Persuasion).  ...

Persuasion, Frames and Norm Construction

2001 European Journal of International Relations  
Put differently, a subjectively persuasive frame might be used by agents acting insincerely in order to gain some ulterior aim, such as reaching elective office.  ...  The notion of 'strategic framing', for instance, is flawed because it invites various distortions into the communicative process.  ...

Making personalized recommendations to customers in a service-oriented economy

Dickson K. W. Chiu, Ho-fung Leung, Ka-man Lam
2005 Proceedings of the 7th international conference on Electronic commerce - ICEC '05  
We explain how this model can facilitate service providers to make effective decisions at strategic, tactical, and operations level regarding service recommendations.  ...  As the purpose of these researches mainly targets for automatic decision of agents, this motivates our research in adapting these models back to applications with humans in the reality, aiming to facilitate  ...  We define the persuasiveness p M of a recommendation M as a continuous function of three arguments: (6) p M = f p (r i , t ij , u M ) t ij is the trustworthiness customer i has towards service provider  ...

Evaluating Persuasion Strategies and Deep Reinforcement Learning methods for Negotiation Dialogue agents

Simon Keizer, Markus Guhe, Heriberto Cuayahuitl, Ioannis Efstathiou, Klaus-Peter Engelbrecht, Mihai Dobre, Alex Lascarides, Oliver Lemon
2017 Proceedings of the 15th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Volume 2, Short Papers  
Our results suggest that a negotiation strategy that uses persuasion, as well as a strategy that is trained from data using Deep Reinforcement Learning, both lead to an improved win rate against humans  ...  The comparison is based on human subjects playing games against artificial game-playing agents ('bots') which implement different negotiation dialogue strategies, using a chat dialogue interface to negotiate  ...  In particular, it has been shown that RL dialogue agents can be trained to strategically select offers in trading dialogues (Keizer et al., 2015; Cuayahuitl et al., 2015c) , but also to bluff and lie  ...
