THESIS M Title
Contribution to the methods of argumentation for decision making : Application to arbitration within the cereal industry
M Abstract The objective of our work is to design a theoretical and methodological framework enabling decision support within a model of knowledge representation, illustrated by a case study from the cereal industry. The basis of our approach is the use of argumentation systems presented in AI literature. We propose a method for determining the similarities between two argumentation systems, in order to unify these abstract, preference-based argumentation frameworks. A contextual preferencesbased argumentation framework is proposed (the preferences and the attacks between arguments have a contextual validity), methods of aggregations between attacks and preferences and the mergence between contexts are investigated in terms of consistency between the collectively accepted arguments. Consistency is obtained when such sets do not contain conflicts in terms of information conveyed and conclusions and/or decisions supported by their arguments. Our approach is based on three common trend of argumentation. Firstly, we propose a nested view of argumentation that meets the expectations of the ”micro” trend, which attempts to define the internal structures of the argument. Secondly, we propose to generate attacks between arguments, based on the actions they support or reject. This allows us to investigate the concerns of the ”macro” trend in the treatment of relationships between arguments in view of calculated collective acceptability. Finally, we investigate some aspects of the ”rhetoric” trend, to determine the definition of audiences giving contextual strength to the argument and generating preferences. This last aspect allows us to establish such contextual recommendations. The entire approach, illustrated through situational examples and an application case, is included in an argumentation-based arbitration model, which in turn is implemented in a formalism of knowledge representation and reasoning (the conceptual graphs).
