    A concurrent language for modelling agents arguing on a shared argumentation space.Stefano Bistarelli & Carlo Taticchi - 2024 - Argument and Computation 15 (1):21-48.
    While agent-based modelling languages naturally implement concurrency, the currently available languages for argumentation do not allow to explicitly model this type of interaction. In this paper we introduce a concurrent language for handling agents arguing and communicating using a shared argumentation space. We also show how to perform high-level operations like persuasion and negotiation through basic belief revision constructs, and present a working implementation of the language and the associated web interface.

    An analysis of some ethical argumentation about genetically modified food.Nancy L. Green - 2024 - Argument and Computation 15 (1):1-20.
    We present an analysis of ethical argumentation and rhetorical elements in an article on the debate about growing genetically modified food (GMF), an issue of current interest in environmental ethics. Ethical argumentation is argumentation that a certain action is permissible, forbidden, or obligatory in terms of ethical intuitions, principles, or theories. Based on analysis of argumentation in the article, we propose several argumentation schemes for descriptive modeling of utilitarian arguments as an alternative to using more general schemes such as practical (...)

    Information-seeking dialogue for explainable artificial intelligence: Modelling and analytics.Ilia Stepin, Katarzyna Budzynska, Alejandro Catala, Martín Pereira-Fariña & Jose M. Alonso-Moral - 2024 - Argument and Computation 15 (1):49-107.
    Explainable artificial intelligence has become a vitally important research field aiming, among other tasks, to justify predictions made by intelligent classifiers automatically learned from data. Importantly, efficiency of automated explanations may be undermined if the end user does not have sufficient domain knowledge or lacks information about the data used for training. To address the issue of effective explanation communication, we propose a novel information-seeking explanatory dialogue game following the most recent requirements to automatically generated explanations. Further, we generalise our (...)

    ω-Groundedness of argumentation and completeness of grounded dialectical proof procedures.Phan Minh Dung, Phan Minh Thang & Jiraporn Pooksook - 2024 - Argument and Computation:1-45.
    Dialectical proof procedures in assumption-based argumentation are in general sound but not complete with respect to both the credulous and skeptical semantics (due to non-terminating loops). This raises the question of whether we could describe exactly what such procedures compute. In a previous paper, we introduce infinite arguments to represent possibly non-terminating computations and present dialectical proof procedures that are both sound and complete with respect to the credulous semantics of assumption-based argumentation with infinite arguments. In this paper, we study (...)

    Annotated insights into legal reasoning: A dataset of Article 6 ECHR cases.Jack Mumford, Katie Atkinson & Trevor Bench-Capon - 2024 - Argument and Computation:1-7.
    We present a novel annotated dataset of legal cases pertaining to Article 6 – the right to a fair trial – of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This dataset will serve as a useful resource to the research community, to assist in the training and evaluation of AI systems designed to embody the legal reasoning involved in determining the appropriate legal outcome from a description of the case material. The annotations were applied to provide finer-grain classifications of legal (...)
