COOPERATIVE REPLIES TO UNBELIEVABLE ASSERTIONS - A Dialogue Protocol based on Logical Interpolation

M. Nykänen, R. Hakli, O. Niinivaara, R. Hakli

Abstract

We propose a dialogue protocol for situations in which an agent makes to another agent an assertion that the other agent finds impossible to believe. In this interaction, unbelievable assertions are rejected using explanations formed by logical interpolation and new assertions are being made such that all previous rebuttals are taken into account.
