    In part 2 of this Trends & Controversies installment, we continue exploring the state of the art, current practices, and future directions for Semantic Web services. SWS aims to bring Semantic Web technology - for representing, sharing, and reasoning about knowledge - to bear in Web service contexts. The objective is to enable a fuller, more flexible automation of service provision and use and... View full abstract»

    The scientific community has been suffering from peer review for decades. This process (also called refereeing) subjects an author's scientific work or ideas to the scrutiny of one or more experts in the field. Publishers use it to select and screen manuscript submissions, and funding agencies use it to award research funds. The goal is to get authors to meet their discipline's standards and thus ...

  • Computing Arguments and Attacks in Assumption-Based Argumentation

    Most computational frameworks for argumentation are based on abstract argumentation, which determines an argument's acceptability on the basis of its ability to counterattack all arguments attacking it. However, this view of argumentation doesn't address how to find arguments, identify attacks, and exploit premises. Assumption-based argumentation addresses these three issues. It's a refinement of ... View full abstract»

    Our eating habits, an essential component of our well-being, are molded by cultural, psychological, and educational factors. These habits solidify over time and are difficult to modify. The information media are masters in employing tricky arguments to persuade people to consume products whose health benefits are doubtful. Attempting to persuade people to adopt more appropriate habits by employing... View full abstract»

    The Diligent argumentation framework helps capture design deliberations in ontology-engineering discussions. It makes consensus-building tasks more efficient and provides detailed guidance for nonexperts. The semantic Web envisions an infrastructure in which humans and machines seamlessly exchange information on the Web. During the discussions participants raise new issues or elaborate on existing...

    The Magtalo prototype environment harnesses dialogue protocols to support flexible, intuitive interaction with data in complex, contentious domains and provides mechanisms for eliciting structured knowledge. Magtalo represents the first example of an implemented online system that uses a closely specified argument-based dialogue protocol combined with a rich language for representing monologic arg...

    In this article, we define ArgSciFF, a prototype operational argumentation framework to support dialogic argument exchange between Semantic Web services. ArgSciFF is based on the Sciff abductive-logic programming (ALP) framework. (Sciff is an abbreviation for "IFF with constraints for agent societies," referring to the "if and only if' proof procedure developed by Tze Ho Fung and Robert Kowal-ski.... View full abstract»

    As the number of Web services continues to increase, so does the opportunities to compose them to build more complex and complete business solutions. To facilitate and speed up Web-services discovery, Web services with similar (or equivalent) functionalities - such as flight booking and travel reservation - can be grouped into communities. Argumentation theory, implemented through a set of softwar... View full abstract»

    In this column, the author raised the conceptual question of the Semantic Web layer cake's proof layer. He believe that provenance knowledge will be increasingly important at this abstraction level - and possibly the key to establishing trust mechanisms and advanced retrieval methods in decentralized applications. Work on Semantic Web provenance issues has started in parallel in different communit... View full abstract»
