First Workshop on Argumentation Knowledge Graphs
“Knowledge graphs (KGs) have demonstrated remarkable effectiveness on various knowledge-intensive computational tasks in a range of domains, including journalism and science. Most work on the automatic construction of KGs has focused narrowly on extracting factual assertions from the source material, ignoring an important dimension–argumentation. Many texts that communicate factual knowledge couch that knowledge in argument, in language that asserts, interprets, and reasons. Arguments are an essential means for forming stances on controversial topics, arriving at successful decisions in the face of uncertainty, and establishing consensus on problems that require interpretation. An active research community has investigated computational models of textual argumentation. Still, many important questions lack concrete answers, including the best approaches to formalizing argumentation as a graph, deploying such graphs at scale, and integrating argumentative knowledge with factual knowledge typically found in KGs.”
“This inaugural workshop on Argumentative Knowledge Graphs (ArgKG) will explore the automatic construction of KGs that encode argumentative knowledge and structures as well as the incorporation of argumentation into factual knowledge graphs, drawing together researchers focusing on NLP, automatic KG construction, and computational analysis of argumentation.”
This workshop will take place at AKBC 2021.
