Current issues in argumentation

Jeudi 11 mai 2017 à 14 h en salle GI042 (Bâtiment Blaise Pascal)

Résumé :

Argumentation is a natural form of reasoning or dialectical process, based on the combination of reasons, either pro or against some statement. The formal study of argumentation has a very long history, which can traced back to ancient philosophers. In recent years, following in particular the work of P. M. Dung, its computational aspects have been heavily studied.

We review some of one the recent questions which emerged in this field, motivated in particular by platforms allowing users to post and contradict arguments, even vote on them, and thus collectively (but not necessarily cooperatively) build "argumentation graphs". No specific background will be assumed.
