Argument mining

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Argument mining, or argumentation mining, is a research area within the natural-language processing field. The goal of argument mining is the automatic extraction and identification of argumentative structures from natural language text with the aid of computer programs.[1] Such argumentative structures include the premise, conclusions, the argument scheme and the relationship between the main and subsidiary argument, or the main and counter-argument within discourse.[2][3] The Argument Mining workshop series is the main research forum for argument mining related research.[4]
