Reasoning and Formal Argumentation in Trust Management
The University of Luxembourg is currently setting up a research project
(Advanced Argumentation Techniques for Trust Management,
AASTM) to apply
the approach of formal argumentation to the issue of trust management.
Reasoning about trust is a process that often involves the application
of rules of thumb, general guidelines or argument and counterargument.
During recent years, the field of formal argumentation has produced a
range of formalisms, as well as software implementations, to deal with
issues such as nonmonotonic reasoning, decision making and agent
- What is a discussion game for stable semantics?
- How to define justification statuses of arguments,
what are its properties, and how can we compute
- Which argumentation semantics corresponds to
3-valued stable semantics in logic programming?
- How to make the ASPIC Lite system satisfy
crash resistance and non-interference?
The work focuses on knowledge-based services for the Information Society
and is based on semantically rich logic formalisms called Argumentation Systems
- Define different forms of falsehood by means of argumentation.
- Deduce from the trustworthiness of the source.
- Standard software engineering methodology.
