The study of artificial intelligence (AI) is in many ways connected with the study of argumentation. Though both fields have developed separately, the last 20 years have witnessed an increase of mutual influence and exchange of ideas. From this development, both fields stand to profit: argumentation theory providing a rich source of ideas that may be used in the computerization of theoretical and practical reasoning and of argumentative interaction, and artificial intelligence providing the systems for testing these ideas. In fact, combining argumentation theory with AI offers argumentation theory a laboratory for examining implementations of its rules and concepts.
