Project MARDY approved: computational models and methods for analyzing argumentation in political discourse

November 26, 2017; Sabine Schulte im Walde (sabine.schulte-im-walde@ims.uni-stuttgart.de)

The project MARDY (Modelling Argumentation Dynamics in Political Discourse) with PIs Sebastian Haunss (Bremen), Jonas Kuhn and Sebastian Padó was approved by the German Research Foundation. The interdisciplinary collaboration project involving Computational Linguistics, Machine Learning and Political Science has the aim of developing new computational models and methods for analyzing argumentation in political discourse – specifically capturing the dynamics of discursive exchanges on controversial issues over time. The goal is to develop tools to support analysis of the possible impact of arguments advanced by different political actors.
