I will describe Slate, a logic-based, robust interactive reasoning system that allows human users to harness an ensemble of intelligent agents in order to construct, test, and express various sorts of natural argumentation. Slate empowers students and professionals in the business of producing argumentation, e.g., mathematicians, logicians, intelligence analysts, designers and producers of standardized reasoning tests. I'll demonstrate Slate in several examples, describe some distinctive features of the system (e.g., reading and generating natural language, immunizing human reasoners from "logical illusions"), present Slate's theoretical underpinnings, and note upcoming refinements.
