David Price (debategraph.org) visits DERI

We had a presentation at DERI today from David Price, one of the people behind the argumentation visualisation site Debategraph. Since modelling and visualising argumentative discussions is something that we have wanted to do in DERI with SIOC for some time, this talk was very interesting to us.

The goal of Debategraph is “to make the best arguments on all sides of any debate freely available to all and continuously open to challenge and improvement by all”. It’s a really nicely designed tool considering it is the work of just two people over the past few years, and was tested by Downing Street on their website last year following a speech by Tony Blair. The maps can be embedded into blogs posts, which is a useful feature. David pointed to some related work from Walton on argumentative schemes and also from Stanford’s Robert Horn.
