Project description

Millions of arguments are shared on the web. Future informationsystems will be able to exploit this valuable knowledge source and to retrieve arguments relevant and convincing to our specific need—all with an interface as intuitive as asking your friend "Why...?". In this project, we want to take the next step towards such an informationsystem.

We employ our service, which is the world-first argument search engine, and enrich it with an intuitive voice interface. We present here a first proof-of-concept demo that allows to ask for arguments, have them read, and switch result pages.
