Carneades 4.3

Version 4.3 of Carneades was released today. New in 4.3 are:

  • Argument validation, by matching arguments to schemes
  • Argumentation scheme validation, checking for syntatic and semantic errors in a theory (knowledge-base)
  • Native implementation of a Constraint Handling Rules (CHR) inference engine, in Go, for constructing arguments. Removes the dependency on Prolog.

The Go implementation of CHR was designed and implemented by Horst Friedrich. It has a separate GitHub project, GoCHR.

As before, you can try Carneades 4.3 online using the Carneades server without having to build or install the system yourself.

The source code is available in the Carneades-4 Github project. The code is open source, using the MPL-2.0 license.
