Lecture to dig into argument mining

Argument mining is the automatic detection or, especially, extraction of arguments from natural language texts.

Waleed Mebane, a doctoral candidate in argumentation studies, will explore the topic in a free public lecture Friday, February 16.

“In this talk I will give an overview of standard approaches to argument mining, especially approaches presented in seminal papers, and I will also give an overview of some recent promising approaches,” he says.

The event begins at 3 p.m. in room 105, Memorial Hall. It is sponsored by the argumentation studies program and the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation, and Rhetoric.
