Implementation of a Dialogue Game for Persuasion over Action

Katie Atkinson, Trevor Bench-Capon and Peter McBurney


This report contains details of the implementation of a dialogue game protocol, named the PARMA (Persuasive ARgument for Multiple Agents) protocol, realised in the Java programming language. The protocol embodies an earlier theory by the authors of persuasion over action. This theory enables participants to propose, defend, and attack an action, or course of actions, and the implementation allows two human participants to engage in a computer mediated dialogue, in accordance with the theory.
