Characterized Argument Agent for Training Partner
For the resolution of disputes, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has become a popular replacement for trials. However, for mediation to work, the mediator must undergo extensive training. To help with mediator training, we have developed an online mediation support system. In this paper, we present an overview of the system and an argument agent. The argument agent participates in moot mediation as a disputant for self-training purposes. We also explain how an agent’s text response can be generated by retrieving from a case base situations which are likely to be met with in dispute resolution.
