Dialogical Scaffolding for Human and Artificial Agent Reasoning

This paper proposes use of computational models of argumentation based dialogue for enhancing the quality and scope ('scaffolding') of both human and artificial agent reasoning. In support of this proposal I draw on work in cognitive psychology that justifies such a role for human reasoning. I also refer to recent concerns about the potential dangers of artificial intelligence (AI), and the consequent need to ensure that AI actions are aligned with human values. I will advocate that

This paper also reviews research in formals models of argumentation based reasoning and dialogue that will underpin applications for scaffolding human and artificial agent reasoning.
