Priority Program (SPP 1999)

Contact person: Philipp Cimiano

The priority program seeks a paradigm shift in which individual facts are replaced by coherent argumentative structures as information units for decision-making, and are systematically and explicitly prepared. The development of new methods is necessary when it comes to extraction of arguments and their relationships from documents, new semantic models and ontologies for the deep representation of arguments as well as new methods that can index arguments, find relevant arguments for a search query and make them accessible to specific interaction with a human user. These goals require the cooperation of different disciplines, which are to cooperate for the first time within the framework and which combination is the prerequisite for the creation of the paradigm shift.
