A multiagent system uses argumentation-based interaction to address service provisioning in an ambient intelligence context. Multiple intelligent agents on the user's mobile computing device address the ambient-intelligence issue and cooperate with a family of dedicated personal-assistance agents on the server side. Each of the latter agents is an expert on a different impairment, so their viewpoints may conflict. Together, they participate in an argumentation-based distributed decision making process to provide the best consistent solution for users having a combination of impairments. This article is part of a special issue on argumentation technology.
