In this project, we propose to investigate strategic argumentation to reach agreements between humans and intelligent systems in dialogue game settings.

We evaluate these reasoning methods from formal, practical and ethical points of view. Current research:

A general framework is defined, comprised of two main components: 1) a model for emotions based on the Appraisal theory of Emotion (AE), and 2) a model for emotional change based on Hedonic...

Previously, formal theories of argument and argument interaction have been proposed and studied, and this has led to the more recent study of computational models of argument. Argumentation, as a field within ar...

We conducted a diary study of how 19 experienced users accessed the Internet from cell phones. Our data show that participants often chose the cell phone to access the Internet even though they had access to a computer, and the most common location for Internet access being the home. Reasons for choosing the phone over the computer were speed, conv...

We conducted a diary and interview study to investigate where and why people use cell phones to access the Internet. In more that 50% of the cases, our participants chose a phone even though they had access to a computer, and the most frequent location for cell phone Internet access was the home.
