Responsible DS + AI Speaker Series: Tjitze Rienstra, Maastricht University

Tjitze Rienstra

Tjitze Rienstra, assistant professor in the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University in The Netherlands, will present "Explanation Through Argumentation."

Abstract: The field of computational argumentation is concerned with models of reasoning that mimic how humans reason when they settle issues by exchanging arguments in a dialogue. In this talk I provide an overview of the development and current state of the field, with a special focus on recent applications of computational argumentation as a basis of explainable and interactive AI techniques.

Rienstra's research focuses on Explainable AI, computational models of argumentation, and reasoning under uncertainty.
