DKB/KIK2018 - The 7th Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief and the 6th Workshop KI & Kognition

Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to change, and thus demands for non-classical reasoning approaches. At the same time, psychological findings indicate that human reasoning cannot be completely described by classical logical systems. Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect beliefs, or inconsistencies.

SAFA2018 - The Second International Workshop on Systems and Algorithms for Formal Argumentation

Computational models of argumentation are approaches that deal with the representation and interaction of arguments and counterarguments. These models can be applied in all areas that benefit from automatic decision-support such as medicine, accounting, chemistry, and law. Many of these models were inspired by works within the fields of non-monotonic reasoning and logic programming and therefore share the sometimes considerable computational complexity of these approaches.
