Ambito e Obiettivi
The Argumentation Group is a working group of the Associazione Italiana per l'Intelligenza Artificiale (AIxIA) whose general goal is to promote Italian scientific activities in the field of Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence, and foster collaborations between research groups.
Argumentation is the study of the processes and activities involving the production and exchange of arguments, where arguments are attempts to persuade someone or something by giving reasons for accepting a particular conclusion as evident. As such, argumentation provides procedures for making and explaining decisions and is able to capture diverse kinds of reasoning and dialogue activities in a formal but still intuitive way, enabling the integration of different specific techniques and the development of trustable applications. In particular, a key feature of argumentation is the capability of providing explanations for the decisions taken based on intuitive concepts, such as arguments and attacks, most humans are familiar with.
In this perspective, a variety of applications of argumentation have been proposed for several fields, ranging from modeling dialogues in social networks to law and medicine.
Given that the study of argumentation is inherently interdisciplinary, the goal of the working group is to stimulate discussions and promote scientific collaboration among researchers involved in the field of argumentation from different perspectives, including computational, linguistic, philosophical and psychological aspects.
Iniziative ed Eventi
The AI^3 Workshop is the official event of the Working Group. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the Italian community of argumentation, in order to give a group identity to several researchers in Italy (and Italian researchers abroad) both to discuss foundations and issues in argumentation and to present challenges and problems for which argumentation may represent a viable AI‐paradigm.
AIˆ3 Steering Committee:
- Stefano Bistarelli - University of Perugia
- Massimiliano Giacomin - University of Brescia
The first edition of the workshop was chaired by Stefano Bistarelli, Massimiliano Giacomin and Andrea Pazienza, and was held in Bari, 15-16 November 2017, co-located with the XVI Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA 2017.
The second edition of the workshop was chaired by Pierpaolo Dondio and Luca Longo, and was held in Trento, 20-21 November 2018, co-located with the XVII Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA 2018.
The third edition of the workshop was chaired by Francesco Santini and Alice Toniolo, and was held in Rende (Cosenza), 19-20 November 2019, co-located with the XVIII Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA 2019.
The fourth edition of the workshop was chaired by Bettina Fazzinga, Filippo Furfaro, and Francesco Parisi, and was held virtually, 25-27 November 2020, co-located with the XIX Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA 2020.
The fifth edition of the workshop was chaired by Marcello D'Agostino, Costanza Larese, and Fabio D'Asaro, and was held virtually, 29 November 2021, co-located with the XX Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA 2021.
