Argumentation Community Group,

I am pleased to share with you a new proposal for a Wikimedia project: Wikianswers. The project intends to integrate artificial intelligence question-answering systems with a wiki question-and-answer platform.

Like similar projects, users will receive one or more answers to their questions from artificial intelligence question-answering systems, but, unlike other projects, they will subsequently be able to edit those answers, as well as any provided explanations and argumentation, per wiki technology. User-corrected content could later be utilized to retrain the question-answering systems, resulting in continual improvement.

The proposed project showcases why explanation and argumentation are essential for next-generation question-answering systems. Question-and-answer platforms can collate argued answers from multiple question-answering systems and multiple decision-making systems can decide which answer is correct from the set of argued answers.

While the proposed project can provide users with argued answers across various question domains, a scenario of interest to me is that of moral question answering. I hope that this scenario is also of some interest to you.

Thank you for any ideas, comments, questions, or suggestions with which to improve the project proposal.

Best regards,
Adam Sobieski
