Argumentation and Computers
This course offers an interdisciplinary view on argumentation and its computation, spanning the fiels of philosophy, linguistics, computer science and artificial intelligence. The first focus will be on introducing students to basic concepts in argumentation theory and provides hands-on experience with state-of-the-art frameworks, in particular Inference Anchoring Theory (Budzynska et al. 2016), that facilitate the identification and extraction of argumentative structures in real data. The second focus lies on argument mining, getting an overview of the techniques for processing argumentation in natural language texts, as well as of the solved issues and open challenges the new research area of argument mining is facing.
