TU Dublin to Host AICS Conference 2020

2 Jul, 2020

The School of Computer Science will host the 28th Irish Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science (AICS2020) which take place online from 7-8 December 2020.

With regular conferences dating back to 1988, the AICS Conference is Ireland’s primary forum for researchers with interests in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. While once a niche area, the fields of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, which encompass Data Analytics, Information Retrieval, and Machine Learning, are now at the forefront of Irish computing research and industry.

You can register on Eventbrite here.


Schedule – Monday 7th December (Full Day)

09:30 – 9:45 Welcome (chair: Luca Longo)
09:45 – 10:30 Keynote by Prof. Francesca Toni, Imperial College London, United Kingdom (chair: Luca Longo)

From Computational Argumentation to Explanation

Computational argumentation is a field in (symbolic AI) focusing on defining argumentation frameworks comprising sets of arguments and dialectical relations between them (e.g. of attack and, in addition or instead, of support), as well as so-called semantics (e.g. amounting to definitions of dialectically acceptable sets of arguments or of dialectical strength of arguments, satisfying desirable dialectical properties such as that supports against an argument should strengthen it). In this talk I will overview recent efforts deploying computational argumentation to obtain and deliver to users explanations of different formats for a variety of systems, including recommenders, classifiers and schedulers.
