Topic: Efficient management of argumentation systems

Abstract:¬†My current research interests are about managing argumentation systems, namely systems able to represent discussions between software agents which are intended to make autonomous decisions. The ability to engage in discussions is essential for human beings both to understand new problems and to perform scientific reasoning, as well as to express, clarify and defend opinions in everyday life. My research goal is about the development of algorithms for efficient computation of “reasonable” sets of arguments that are able to justify a point of view in a discussion.
