Defeasible reasoning tool for multi-agent collaboration

Keywords: Knowledge representation - Logic programming

Functional Description: Damn is an open source defeasible reasoning tool that allows the use of different semantics (ambiguity blocking/propagating with or without team defeat) in order to reason with incoherent or inconsistent knowledge. It allows the reasoning about preferences and their justification between different agents with a final aim of producing justified preferences on different outcomes (alternatives). These preferences are then used with a voting module (given certain voting strategy) to break ties and establish the chosen alternative. It is applied within the GLOPACK and NOAW projects.

News Of The Year: The HCI has been finalised: multi-users functionalities have been added (login, agents added, etc.).
