RESEARCH INTERESTS

Computational Models of Argument

Formal argumentation frameworks to reason over inconsistent and incomplete information (bipolar argumentation, trust, preferences, meta-argumentation).

Argument Mining

Mining for argumentative structures in natural language text (stance detection, argumentative components classification, relation predictions).

Argument quality and generation

Automatic quality assessment of argumentative structures and argument generation (argument-based explanations, counter-arguments). 

Artificial Intelligence and Law

Mining and reasoning on legal texts (fomalisation of moral dialogues, legal ontology population, legal NERC, legal ontologies).

Hate speech detection

Identifying and classifying harmful and abusive textual messages posted on online social networks (inglish, french, italian, german).

Argumentation and emotions

Study of the correlations among argumentative moves in debates, metal statuses (engagement, workload), and emotions.
