Other Information

I am Professor in Computational Logic and Royal Academy of Engineering/JP Morgan Research Chair in Argumentation-based Interactive Explainable AI, in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence research theme and the leader of the CLArg (Computational Logic and Argumentation) research group. I am also a member of the GLAM research group and of the AI@Imperial Network of Excellence at Imperial College London, and the founding leader of the Centre for eXplainable AI (XAI).

I hold an ERC Advanced grant on Argumentation-based Deep Interactive EXplanations (ADIX).  

My current research focus is on explainable AI, machine arguing and computational argumentation, including argumentation in AI broadly conceived and argument mining from text. For a high-level (but not so recent) summary of my research in machine arguing see my (2016) inaugural talk (also available live).

I am corner editor on Argumentation for the Journal of Logic and Computation , and in the editorial board of the Argument and Computation and Artificial Intelligence journals.
