Explaining Natural Language query results

Daniel Deutch, Nave Frost, Amir Gilad
2019 The VLDB journal  
Multiple lines of research have developed Natural Language (NL) interfaces for formulating database queries.  ...  The answers that we present are importantly based on the provenance of tuples in the query result, detailing not only the results but also their explanations.  ...  Here our goal is to explain individual query results, and so a fine-grained provenance model is sought for.  ...

NaLIR

Fei Li, Hosagrahar V Jagadish
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '14  
In this demo, we present NaLIR, a generic interactive natural language interface for querying relational databases. NaLIR can accept a logically complex English language sentence as query input.  ...  This query is first translated into a SQL query, which may include aggregation, nesting, and various types of joins, among other things, and then evaluated against an RDBMS.  ...  Previous systems explain SQL queries to naive users using natural language [6] and visualization tools [4, 2] .  ...

2018 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
Natural language (NL) interfaces to databases allow users without technical background to query the database and get the results.  ...  Our solution builds upon and combines recent advancements in Natural Language Interfaces to Databases and models for why-not provenance.  ...  The user is then presented with the results of the initial query along with natural language explanations for the result set tuples, generated by NLProv.  ...

2013 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13 Companion  
While experts can query the backend of these applications using the standard query language SPARQL, most lay users lack the expertise necessary to proficiently interact with these applications.  ...  Yet, these tools are usually unable to make the meaning of the queries they generate plain to lay users, making it difficult for these users to i) assess the correctness of the query generated out of their  ...  Moreover, we present how our framework can be used to explain results of SPARQL queries in natural language.  ...

Constructing an interactive natural language interface for relational databases

Fei Li, H. V. Jagadish
2014 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
In this paper, we describe the architecture of an interactive natural language query interface for relational databases.  ...  Natural language has been the holy grail of query interface designers, but has generally been considered too hard to work with, except in limited specific circumstances.  ...  Previous systems explain SQL queries to naive users using natural language [9] and visualization tools [6, 3] .  ...

Semantic Search based on Ontology Alignment for Information Retrieval

Manju Mony, Jyothi M. Rao, Manish M. Potey
2014 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Also, it provides a natural language query (NLQ) interface. It converts the Natural Language (NL) input to SPARQL query.  ...  Also, in semantic search, user has to enter query in formal query language SPARQL, which is quite difficult to learn and use for laymen.  ...  User Interface This module accepts the Natural Language query and returns the results to the user on screen.  ...

Web Page Ranking Using Multilingual Information Search Algorithm - A Novel Approach

P.V. Vidya, P.C. Reghu Raj, V. Jayan
2016 Procedia Technology - Elsevier  
The main intention behind Multilingual Information Retrieval is to find the relevant information available irrespective of the language used in the query.  ...  Situations may also arise where the user is able to read documents in languages different from the native one, but might have difficulty in formulating queries in them.  ...  Multilingual nature of the search results can be established by retrieving the documents corresponding to translated version of the query posed originally.  ...
