Towards Entailment-Based Question Answering: ITC-irst at CLEF 2006 [chapter]

Milen Kouylekov, Matteo Negri, Bernardo Magnini, Bonaventura Coppola
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The participation in the AVE task, with an answer validation module based on textual entailment recognition, is motivated by our objectives of (i) creating a modular framework for an entailment-based approach  ...  to QA, and (ii) developing, in compliance with this framework, a stand-alone component for answer validation which implements different approaches to the problem.  ...  Adhering to this perspective, the objective of the research on entailment-based QA aims at creating a stand-alone package for Answer Validation (AV), which implements different strategies to select the  ...

Survey on Answer Validation for Indonesian Question Answering System (IQAS)

Abdiansah Abdiansah, Azhari Azhari, Anny K. Sari
2018 International Journal of Intelligent Systems and Applications  
One of the important issues in IQAS is Answer Validation (AV), which is a system that can determine the correctness of QAS.  ...  Research on Question Answering System (QAS) has been done mainly in English.  ...  The second objective was to bring systems based on Textual Entailment to the Automatic Hypothesis Generation problem which was not part itself of the Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) task but a need  ...

Towards an Automatic Validation of Answers in Question Answering

Anne-Laure Ligozat, Brigitte Grau, Anne Vilnat, Isabelle Robba, Arnaud Grappy
2007 19th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence(ICTAI 2007)  
The objective of an Answer Validation task is thus to judge the correctness of an answer returned by a QA system for a question, according to the text snippet given to support it.  ...  In this article, we present our strategy for deciding if the snippets justify the answers: a strategy based on our own QA system, comparing the answers it returned with the answer to judge.  ...  This task is close to the task named AVE (Answer Validation Exercise 2 ) introduced at QA@CLEF 3 in 2006.  ...

BulQA: Bulgarian–Bulgarian Question Answering at CLEF 2005 [chapter]

Kiril Simov, Petya Osenova
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
At present these grammars can be viewed as patterns for the type of questions, but our goal is to develop them further into a deeper parsing system for Bulgarian.  ...  This paper describes the architecture of a Bulgarian-Bulgarian question answering system -BulQA. The system relies on a partially parsed corpus for answer extraction.  ...  Thus, for about one third of the questions the answer NIL was stated without a real application of the system. Our plans for future work are to build on our experience from CLEF 2005 participation.  ...
