A particular feature of the framework is that the agents argue directly from individual repositories of experiences rather than from a previously engineered knowledge base, as is the usual case, and so the knowledge engineering bottleneck is avoided. Argument from experience is enabled by real time data-mining conducted by individual agents to find reasons to support their viewpoints, and critique the arguments of other parties. Multiparty dialogues raise a number of significant issues, necessitating appropriate design choices. The paper describes how these issues were resolved in the protocol and implemented in PISA, and...
