We present various new concepts and results related to abstract dialectical frameworks (ADFs), a powerful generalization of Dung's argumentation frameworks (AFs). In particular, we show how the existing definitions of stable and preferred semantics which are restricted to the subcase of so-called bi-polar ADFs can be improved and generalized to arbitrary(More)
We show in this paper how managed multi-context systems (mMCSs) can be turned into a reactive formalism suitable for continuous reasoning in dynamic environments. We extend mMCSs with (abstract) sensors and define the notion of a run of the extended systems. We then show how typical problems arising in online reasoning can be addressed: handling potentially(More)
In the field of artificial intelligence (AI), the subdomain of knowledge representation (KR) has the aim to represent, integrate, and exchange knowledge in order to do some reasoning about the given information. During the last decades many different KR-languages were proposed for a variety of certain applications with specific needs. The concept of a(More)
In this work, we present asynchronous multi-context systems (aMCSs), which provide a framework for loosely coupling different knowledge representation formalisms that allows for online reasoning in a dynamic environment. Systems of this kind may interact with the outside world via input and output streams and may therefore react to a continuous flow of(More)
In this paper we introduce reactive multi-context systems (rMCSs), a framework for reactive reasoning in the presence of heterogeneous knowledge sources. In particular, we show how to integrate data streams into multi-context systems (MCSs) and how to model the dynamics of the systems, based on two types of bridge rules. We illustrate how several typical(More)
