Automated argument assistance As part of the ITeR project I have been working in, I have developed several experimental systems for automated argument-assistance. Argument-assistance systems are aids to draft and generate arguments, e.g., by administering and supervising the argument process, keeping track of the issues that are raised and the assumptions that are made, keeping track of the reasons adduced, the conclusions drawn, and the counterarguments that have been adduced, evaluating the justification status of the statements made, and checking whether the users of the system obey the pertaining rules of argument. Argument-assistance systems should be distinguished from the more common automated reasoning systems. The latter automatically perform reasoning on the basis of the information in their 'knowledge base'. Currently the following experimental systems can be downloaded: Argue!

Open-Source Argument Mapping The latest version of Argunet features new tools that make it easier to organize the debates and to search through debates located on the Argunet-server or on your computer. To help you organize your work you can label the debates using private and non private tags and search for existing debates using a search-engine. The label-feature [...] The latest version of Argunet fastens Client-Server communication. Specifically, argument maps are only updated if they have been changed on the server. The Argunet Server is up again. The Argunet Server at the FU Berlin is temporarily down for maintenance and updates. After more than a year of work, we proudly present you Argunet 1.0.0!

Editor - Argunet Argunet Editor is a free argument map editor for analyzing and visualizing complex debates. You can use it offline and save your debates on your hard-disk. Or you can use it as a client-server application. This allows you to share your debates and collaborate with others on the Argunet server. Fast sketching mode: You can use Argunet to quickly outline the macro-structure of a debate. Sketching debates is quite intuitive and you will get the hang of it without much effort.Logical precision: In contrast to other argument mapping software, Argunet doesn’t stop there. If this all sounds like gibberish to you, don’t worry. Installation In order to run Argunet, a Java Runtime Environment 6.0 or higher has to be installed on your Computer. Please select the download files for your operations system below and follow the install instructions. To install the Argunet layout and export plugins open the ‘Help’ Menu in Argunet and select ‘Install Argunet plugins’. Download Microsoft Windows Mac OS X
