Argument mining has started to yield early results in automatic analysis of text to produce representations of reason-conclusion structures. This paper addresses for the first time the question of automatically extracting such structures from dialogical settings of argument. More specifically, we introduce theoretical foundations for dialogical argument(More)
With the advent of ultra-fast MR I, it is now possible to assess non-invasively regional myocardial perfusion with multislice coverage and sub-second temporal resolution. First-pass contrast enhanced studies are acquired with ECG-triggering and breath holding. Nevertheless, some respiratory induced movements still remain. Myocardial perfusion can be(More)
In this paper, we briefly present the objectives of Inference Anchoring Theory (IAT) and the formal structure which is proposed for dialogues. Then, we introduce our development corpus, and a computational model designed for the identification of discourse minimal units in the context of argumentation and the illocutionary force associated with each unit.(More)
This paper presents an efficient and accurate approach to myocardium extraction in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images based on a careful application of soft computing techniques. PET images present a noisy background, making the automatic myocardium extraction and uptake quantification a difficult task. In this work a Self Organized Radial Basis(More)
Illocutionary structure in real language use is intricate and complex, and nowhere more so than in argument and debate. Identifying this structure without any theoretical scaffolding is extremely challenging even for humans. New work in Inference Anchoring Theory has provided significant advances in such scaffolding which are helping to allow the analytical(More)
Dispute mediation is a growing activity in the resolution of conflicts, and more and more research emerge to enhance and better understand this (until recently) understudied practice. Corpus analyses are necessary to study discourse in this context; yet, little data is available, mainly because of its confidentiality principle. After proposing hints and(More)
During the last decade, the incidence of male urethritis stopped declining in France. Risk factors associated with unprotected intercourse have been extensively studied in men who have sex with men, but not in men in general. The purpose of the study was to determine major risk factors for urethritis among men and to describe the sociodemographic and(More)
