Prof. Chris Reed


I am interested in the fields of both Artificial Intelligence and the philosophy of argument. Within the BESiDE project we are working to apply this to facilitating communication. Much of BESIDE revolves around carefully structured conversation; my interest lies in the way such conversations are structured and the ways in which the information they contain can be extracted, manipulated, updated and extended, and what philosophers refer to as intertextuality -- in this case, how different conversations refer to information that is interconnected. The controlled creation of these datasets and tools that can be used to interrogate and extend them represent tasks that require a demanding interdisciplinary mix of skills.

  • A software tool for facilitating focus groups

    Coordinating focus groups with clients, users and other stakeholders can offer valuable insights and can be a key selling point for practices. Running them effectively however can pose challenges:

  • Dachstuhl Seminars
    Dachstuhl Seminar 15512 - Debating Technologies

    A Scientific Meeting (conference, seminar etc.)

    Schloss Dagstuhl is a distinguished venue, bringing world-class scientists and practitioners together in a series of workshops and seminars to explore cutting edge informatics topics.  BESiDE's Co-Investigator Chris Reed, is at Schloss Dagstuhl contributing to Dachstuhl Seminar 15512 - Debating Technologies. 

  • COMMA 2014
    Fifth International Conference on Computational Models of Argument

    A Scientific Meeting (conference, seminar etc.)

    The International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA 2014), the regular forum for presentation and exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects of argumentation, was held in the Scottish Highlands 9th-12th September, organised by the Universities of Aberdeen and Dundee.
