The topic of the AILP is argumentation systems
systems that support deployment of and reasoning about
evidence for and against some course of action.
Here are some useful documents that give an introduction to the area.
You are invited to take a look at these before the course gets underway.
There are three assignments:
- The first assignment asks you to work on an initial implementation
of a basic system. You will receive comments on your submission,
however this is for feedback only and does not count towards
your mark for the course. Submission is due at
16:00 on Friday 14th October
- The second assignment asks for your extended implementation
of the system, with suitable comments/documentation.
Submission is due at
16:00 on Friday 11th November
- The final assignment asks you to run experiments using your system,
and to write a report describing the system, the experiments and
your evaluation of the outcome. This is due at
16:00 on Wednesday 21st December
We will use a wiki as a forum for discussion and questioning during the course.
I will be available Thursdays, 10:30-11:30, 2.10a Informatics Forum.
This section will carry a log of activity on the course.
