A collection of code used for the research project at ARG-tech aiming for argument analysis and natural language processing


The purpose of this project is to provide tools and services used in our argument analysis research.

Parts of this research project will happen inside Colaboratory as well. So this repository is a dependency there and should be treated accordingly.


Many of the answers in our data set for this project are long and contain multiple statements. To correctly analyze them, we need to segment those.

As a first experimental solution there is the simple cli tool inside cmd/cli/segmenter.go which is using for doing the first steps of segmenting.

To run it simply provide your string as first argument:

go run cmd/segmenter/*.go "Hello darkness my old friend"

Argument Analysis API

This repository is part of a 2 week research project. If you are part of the CDL or DPT feel free to request access and contribute. Sync is happening through Mail or our Slack.

If you are an external party and interested in contributing, feel free to get in touch. While this repo is just for the research project, our effort does not stop after two weeks and we are happy to have people join the mission.
