Argument visualisation and analysis
- AnalysisWall - A very large touch screen supporting collaborative analysis in real time
- Araucaria - A software tool for analysing arguments (also in a Polish version, Araucaria-PL)
- OVA: Online Visualisation of Argument - A browser-based tool that supports analysis of online textual arguments and saves to the Argument Web. The project also includes OVAview, which renders AIF argument resources diagrammatically and OVAgen for manipulating abstract frameworks.
Argument in dialogue
- Arvina - A prototype implementation of the idea of Mixed Initiative Argumentation, where agents and human users can argue on an equal basis.
- MAgtALO - A proof-of-concept software system for argumentation-based virtual round table discussion (superseded by Arvina).
- The Architecture for Argumentation - A suite of software to support the exploitation and use of argumentative dialogue games.
Argument Web infrastructure, corpus resources and interfaces
- AIFdb - Currently the main search interface for the Argument Web
- AIFdb web services - A suite of online services for accessing and manipulating AIF resources
- AraucariaDB - An online database of analysed argumentation (superseded by AIFdb).
- ArgDB - An online database of analysed argumentation, building on AraucariaDB but using the open AIF standard for argument representation (superseded by AIFdb).
- ArgDF - Semantic web based argumentation using RDF. The project is based at the British University in Dubai and runs jointly with the University of Edinburgh, Informatics Department, and the University of Dundee, School of Computing. The project homepage can be found at www.ArgDF.org.
- Corpora - various different argumentation datasets
Computation over argument structures
- Dung-O-Matic - a tool for calculating various acceptability semantics on Dung Argumentation Frameworks.
- TOAST - a tool for calculating various acceptability semantics on structured argumentation frameworks
Other Argument Web applications
- ArguBlogging - Capturing the arguments that happen online. Enabling distributed argumentative dialogues to be aggregated and reused.
Currently Funded Projects
- The JISC-NEH-funded project Digging by Debating is exploring the use of debate as a tool for navigating arguments in very large data sets such as Google Books (2012-2014).
- The EPSRC-funded project Grumpy Old Debate (GOD) is examining the ways in which debate can be used for engaging the digitally excluded (2012-2014).
- The Leverhulme-funded project Dialogue-based Exploration of Argument & Mediation Space (DrEAMS) is looking at links between argumentation and mediation (2013-2016).
- The EPSRC-funded project Built Environment for Social Inclusion in the Digital Economy (BESIDE) is using structured argument-based dialogue games for knowledge elicitation (2013-2016).
