New version of Arvina

Posted by chris on October 1, 2013

A new version of the dialogue support tool Arvina is coming together. Arvina

  • accepts any dialogue protocol specification (expressed using an extended version of DGDL),
  • allows an arbitrary starting point in the Argument Web,
  • automatically creates agents which are populated with data corresponding to statements that individuals have contributed to the Argument Web, and then
  • supports an online mixed initiative debate involving one or more users plus the automatically created agents, which
  • updates the Argument Web with appropriate AIF structures as the dialogue proceeds.

You can see a sneak preview of fully generalised mixed initiative argumentation in this video.
