Arabic Question Answering: A Study on Challenges, Systems, and Techniques

Heba Samy, Ehab E., Khaled Shaalan
2019 International Journal of Computer Applications  
A general architecture is represented for the Question Answering task on both structured and unstructured data. Then, an overview of the work done in Arabic Question Answering Systems is presented.  ...  The enormous increase of the amount of information available on the web creates the need for systems like Question Answering to bridge the gap between general end users and the web with its different data  ...  It was designed to search for answers found in structured data only, but failed to extract an answer from unstructured data. No evaluation reported for this system.  ...

The use of theorem-proving techniques in question-answering systems

C. Cordell Green, Bertram Raphael
1968 Proceedings of the 1968 23rd ACM national conference on -  
The authors are indebted to Robert A. Yates for h substantial contributions to the design and progran ming of system QA2.  ...  We have constructed two question-answering systems that use list-structured data bases and formal theorem-proving techniques to store facts, extract relevant data, and deduce logical answers to questions  ...  These groups are developing ways for a question answerer to accept subsets of natural English as the input language.  ...

Machine Reading Comprehension: Methods and Trends of Low Resource Languages

2021 jecet  
This is due to the unavailability of large-scale training datasets in low resource languages. Several studies on Machine Reading Comprehension (MRC) have proposed MRC models based on English.  ...  The survey demonstrates that available MRC models are ineffective in low resource languages, such as Hindi, Arabic, and Urdu, mainly due to large datasets and language structure unavailability.  ...  Multi-lingual QA Framework for English and Hindi A QA system aims to develop a model to automatically generate the answer for a given question from the data repository.  ...
