A Generator of Evaluative Arguments (GEA)
GEA is a fully-implemented, complete and modular NLG system for
generating user tailored evaluative arguments. GEA covers all aspects
of generating evaluative
arguments from selecting and organizing the content of the argument, to
the selected content into natural language. For content selection and
GEA applies an argumentation strategy based on guidelines from
theory. For expressing the content into natural language, GEA relies on
set of techniques that extend and integrate previous work in
linguistics on micro-planning and realizing evaluative arguments.
a quantitative model of user preferences expressed as an additive
value function (AMVF) is the key knowledge source used by GEA in
the content, organization and phrasing of the generated arguments to
GEA is implemented in Allegro
Common Lisp. It runs on Sun
machines (Allegro 4.3.1 and Allegro 5.0).
I should be easy to port it to Allegro for Windows. If interested in obtaining the source code,
