Towards Deliberation Analytics: Stream Processing of Argument Data for Deliberative Communication


Participants in a deliberative discourse are expected to follow specific rules of communication to legitimise outcomes. This paper focuses on technology developed around streams of computational argument data which is intended to inform and improve deliberative communication in real time. The goal is to bridge the gap between long-established theoretical desiderata from the social science literature and objective analytics calculated automatically from computable argument data in actual public deliberations.
