DFG accepts new project on Knowledge-based Argumentation AnalysisThe new project ExpLAIN: Between the lines -- Knowledge-based Analysis of Argumentation in a formal Argumentation Inference System is funded within the DFG priority program RATIO: Robust Argumentation Machines.
The project will be jointly conducted by Prof. Anette Frank and Prof. Heiner Stuckenschmidt (University of Mannheim) and their associated research groups.
The project will
- uncover missing explanatory links in argumentative texts,
- fill in automatically acquired knowledge that makes the structure of the argument explicit, and
- will establish and verify the knowledge-enhanced argumentation structure with a combination of formal reasoning and machine learning.
Within the priority programme RATIO: Robust Argumentation Machines we will contribute to community actions, shared tasks and evaluation efforts.
