Handling inconsistencies in argumentation knowledge

Supervisor: Loan Ho (t.t.l.ho@vu.nl)


In the legal domain (EU Convention of Human Rights), a problem is that a number of past decisions could be simply wrong because attitudes and case law change over time and later cases are preferred to older cases. a decision in this case is still a challenge, especially in the case of argumentation data.


In the thesis, we will address inconsistencies in argumentation data by using logic-based reasoning.


Supervision will be by Loan Ho and Stefan Schlobach.
