Routing questions to appropriate answerers in community question answering services

Baichuan Li, Irwin King
2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '10  
Community Question Answering (CQA) service provides a platform for increasing number of users to ask and answer for their own needs but unanswered questions still exist within a fixed period.  ...  To address this, the paper aims to route questions to the right answerers who have a top rank in accordance of their previous answering performance.  ...  A user may answers a great number of questions which are similar to qr, but we cannot reach the conclusion that the user must be an expert for question qr if most previous answers are of low qualities.  ...

Analyzing and predicting question quality in community question answering services

Baichuan Li, Tan Jin, Michael R. Lyu, Irwin King, Barley Mak
2012 Proceedings of the 21st international conference companion on World Wide Web - WWW '12 Companion  
Users tend to ask and answer questions in community question answering (CQA) services to seek information and share knowledge.  ...  A corollary is that myriad of questions and answers appear in CQA service.  ...  In other words, "high quality" questions are supposed to attract great user attention, more answer attempts and receive best answers within a short period.  ...

Question Difficulty Estimation in Community Question Answering Services

Jing Liu, Quan Wang, Chin-Yew Lin, Hsiao-Wuen Hon
2013 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
In this paper, we address the problem of estimating question difficulty in community question answering services.  ...  We propose a competition-based model for estimating question difficulty by leveraging pairwise comparisons between questions and users.  ...  This is straightforward since the best answerer u b solves question q better than asker u a and all nonbest answerers in S. Let's view question q as a pseudo user u q .  ...

Questions about questions

Conventional studies of online information seeking behavior usually focus on the use of search engines or question answering (Q&A) websites.  ...  We found that questions being asked on Twitter are substantially different from the topics being tweeted in general.  ...  This number, although still far behind the number of search queries, has already overwhelmed the number of questions in traditional Q&A sites.  ...

Quality-aware collaborative question answering

Maggy Anastasia Suryanto, Ee Peng Lim, Aixin Sun, Roger H. L. Chiang
2009 Proceedings of the Second ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining - WSDM '09  
We therefore propose a quality-aware framework to design methods that select answers from a community QA portal considering answer quality in addition to answer relevance.  ...  Despite their popularity, it is well known that answers in community QA portals have unequal quality.  ...  Based on our results so far, we believe that collaborative question answering on a community QA portal has great potential in returning good answers especially when there is a large pool of existing questions  ...
