Towards argument-based explanatory dialogues: from argument mining to (explanatory) argument generation
Providing high quality explanations for AI predictions is a challenging task. It requires, among other elements, selecting a proper level of generality/specificity of the explanation, referring to specific elements that have contributed to the decision, and providing evidence supporting negative hypothesis. In this talk, I will present some results achieved in the area of Argument Mining and Argument Generation and how these results can be exploited to generate high quality explanatory dialogues crucially based on argumentation mechanisms. The CHIST-ERA ANTIDOTE project will be also introduced.

Speaker: Serena Villata
Hosted by Barbara De Cock

The talk was streamed via the APPLY TV YouTube channel, and now available on demand, just below.

COST Action CA17132

Providing and criticising reasons is indispensable to achieve sound public policy that commands the support of both citizens and stakeholders. This need is now widely acknowledged in the recent literature and key EU documents, which highlight the perils of populist discourse and policies.
