Answer extraction, semantic clustering, and extractive summarization for clinical question answering

Dina Demner-Fushman, Jimmy Lin
2006 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th annual meeting of the ACL - ACL '06  
This paper presents a hybrid approach to question answering in the clinical domain that combines techniques from summarization and information retrieval.  ...  Two evaluations-a manual one focused on short answers and an automatic one focused on the supporting abstracts-demonstrate that our system compares favorably to PubMed, the search system most widely used  ...  Question Answering Approach Conflicting desiderata shape the characteristics of "answers" to clinical questions. On the one hand, conciseness is paramount.  ...

FEQA: A Question Answering Evaluation Framework for Faithfulness Assessment in Abstractive Summarization [article]

Esin Durmus and He He and Mona Diab
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Given question-answer pairs generated from the summary, a QA model extracts answers from the document; non-matched answers indicate unfaithful information in the summary.  ...  Neural abstractive summarization models are prone to generate content inconsistent with the source document, i.e. unfaithful. Existing automatic metrics do not capture such mistakes effectively.  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank Faisal Ladhak, the Lex and Comprehend groups at Amazon Web Services AI, and the anonymous reviewers for their feedback on this work.  ...

Text-to-Text Generation for Question Answering [chapter]

Wauter Bosma, Erwin Marsi, Emiel Krahmer, Mariët Theune
2011 Interactive Multi-modal Question-Answering  
When answering questions, major challenges are (a) to carefully determine the content of the answer and (b) phrase it in a proper way.  ...  In IMIX, we focus on two text-to-text generation techniques to accomplish this: content selection and sentence fusion.  ...  To this end, we devised a framework for automatic summarization which is founded on graph theory and can be applied as a text-to-text generation technique in question answering.  ...
