This paper reports on a program for the development of cognitive systems based on user specifications expressed in Natural Language in the form of high-level guidelines for the desired behaviour of those systems. Language analysis from existing NLP tools is used to generate scenarios based on the users’ description of their preferences in the provision of the service by the system. These scenarios are combined with the SoDA Methodology to develop and generate an argumentation theory that captures the guidelines of operation given in the natural language description of the user. The intended architecture of a fully automated system that generates argumentation based cognitive systems from natural language is presented, together with a first analysis of the challenges posed and evaluation of progress in addressing them. This system is called Gorgias-NL, reflecting the central task of the approach to provide a natural language interface to the Gorgias argumentation system.
