The Design and Development of a Cloud-based Platform Supporting Team-oriented Evidence-based Reasoning: SWARM Systems Paper

AbstractThe Smartly-assembled Wiki-style Argument Marshalling project (SWARM) commenced in 2017 as part of the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) funded Crowdsourcing Evidence, Argumentation, Thinking and Evaluation (CREATE) Program. The SWARM project has developed an online platform allowing groups to produce evidence-based reasoning. This paper provides a summary of the core requirements and rationale that have driven the SWARM platform implementation. We present the technical architecture and associated design implementation. We also introduce core capabilities that have been introduced to encourage user interaction and social acceptance of the platform by the crowds.
