Abstract / Description of output

This demonstration highlights the design of the CONSULT system, a modular decision-support system (DSS) intended to help patient suffering from chronic conditions self-manage their treatments. The system takes input from multiple sources, including commercial wellness sensors and a patient’s electronic health record, to inform a computational argumentation engine that constructs weighted opinions using these inputs and knowledge about their sources, and uses an interaction agent driven by argumentation-based dialogue to respond to user queries.
