Towards identifying arguments in Wikipedia pages

Hoda Sepehri Rad, Denilson Barbosa
2011 Proceedings of the 20th international conference companion on World wide web - WWW '11  
In this paper, we discuss our initial efforts towards the problem of automatic evaluation of extracting controversial points in Wikipedia pages.  ...  Wikipedia is one of the most widely used repositories of human knowledge today, contributed mostly by a few hundred thousand regular editors.  ...  This work was supported in part by a grant from the NSERC Business Intelligence Network.  ...

Expert Stance Graphs for Computational Argumentation

Orith Toledo-Ronen, Roy Bar-Haim, Noam Slonim
2016 Proceedings of the Third Workshop on Argument Mining (ArgMining2016)  
We suggest that this graph may be valuable for various fundamental tasks in computational argumentation. Experts and topics in our graph are Wikipedia entries.  ...  We describe the construction of an Expert Stance Graph, a novel, large-scale knowledge resource that encodes the stance of more than 100,000 experts towards a variety of controversial topics.  ...  Dawkins' page in Wikipedia 1 includes various types of evidence for his stance towards atheism: 1.  ...

In this paper, we examine the discursive situation of Wikipedia.  ...  Finally, first steps towards a qualitative discourse analysis of the English Wikipedia are elaborated.  ...  In the final section, a tentative approach towards a Foucault inspired discourse analysis of a corpus from the English Wikipedia will be explained.  ...

Modeling Deliberative Argumentation Strategies on Wikipedia

Khalid Al-Khatib, Henning Wachsmuth, Kevin Lang, Jakob Herpel, Matthias Hagen, Benno Stein
2018 Proceedings of the 56th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
Applied to six million discussions from Wikipedia talk pages, our approach results in a model with 13 categories along three dimensions: discourse acts, argumentative relations, and frames.  ...  This paper studies how the argumentation strategies of participants in deliberative discussions can be supported computationally.  ...  An inline template is a Wikipedia page that has been created to be included in other pages.  ...

YAGO: A Large Ontology from Wikipedia and WordNet

2008 Journal of Web Semantics  
Furthermore, it allows representing n-ary relations in a natural way while maintaining compatibility with RDFS. A powerful query model facilitates access to YAGO's data.  ...  The facts for YAGO have been extracted from the category system and the infoboxes of Wikipedia and have been combined with taxonomic relations from WordNet.  ...  Our infobox heuristics deliver facts that have Wikipedia entities (i.e. Wikipedia links) as arguments. These links, however, need not be the correct Wikipedia page identifiers.  ...

Wikipedia as Rational Discourse: An Illustration of the Emancipatory Potential of Information Systems

Sean Hansen, Nicholas Berente, Kalle Lyytinen
2007 2007 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'07)  
In this paper, we apply the Habermasian ideal of rational discourse to Wikipedia as an illustration of the emancipatory potential of information systems.  ...  We conclude that Wikipedia does embody an approximation of rational discourse, while several challenges remain.  ...  While editors and administrators can identify and communicate with a given contributor (i.e., page editing requires a login or the recording of the contributor's IP address), members of the Wikipedia community  ...

2007 Proceedings of the 16th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '07  
The facts have been automatically extracted from the unification of Wikipedia and WordNet, using a carefully designed combination of rule-based and heuristic methods described in this paper.  ...  The resulting knowledge base is a major step beyond WordNet: in quality by adding knowledge about individuals like persons, organizations, products, etc. with their semantic relationships -and in quantity  ...  Not all facts extracted this way constitute valid facts in the YAGO ontology, because their arguments may not be entities, but arbitrary Wikipedia pages.  ...
