Research Seminar – Mark Snaith (University of Dundee) – Argument Technology and the Council of Coaches project

February 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this talk, I will give an overview of computational models of argument and dialogue, and how Argument Technology is being built upon them in a wide variety of contexts, including: healthcare, political debate and fake news. In particular, I will present a specific application of argument technology: as a component the Council of Coaches (COUCH) project. COUCH is a 3-year Horizon-2020 project that aims to advance the state-of-the-art in e-coaching by deploying a virtual council that can assist users with their health goals. After giving a brief overview of the project as a whole, I will then focus on the key role that argument technology will play in delivering the final system.
