Questions require an answer: A deductive perspective on questions and answers

Willemijn Vermaat
2006 Australasian Language Technology Association Workshop  
Following the structured meaning approach to questions, we propose an analysis of wh-questions in typelogical grammar that incorporates the requirement for a certain type of answer into the type assigned  ...  With this pattern we can explain the difference between wh-pronouns ('who') and wh-determiners ('which'), and derive whquestions that require multiple answers.  ...  In loose terms, a wh-question can be interpreted as a sentence which still requires an answer. The answer to a question such as "'Who saw Mary?"  ...

3D Question Answering [article]

Shuquan Ye and Dongdong Chen and Songfang Han and Jing Liao
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Different from image based VQA, 3D Question Answering (3DQA) takes the color point cloud as input and requires both appearance and 3D geometry comprehension ability to answer the 3D-related questions.  ...  Visual Question Answering (VQA) has witnessed tremendous progress in recent years. However, most efforts only focus on the 2D image question answering tasks.  ...  Based on observations on collected annotations, we define a question with more than 2 same labels as an accurate answer.  ...

Answering Process Questions

G. Scragg
1975 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
A wide variety of questions is answered with very few distinct answering processes. Sample output is provided.  ...  A program is described which answers questions about processes-It is assumed that such questions should be answerable using as data only procedures for performing (simulating) the actions.  ...  Inferential reasoning and procedural questions It is not always possible to find an answer by look up or simple deduction. Yet it may still be possible to infer an answer from data in the data base.  ...

Closure, Contrast, and Answer

In what follows, I will identify adequacy conditions for closure, criticize the extant invariantist and contextualist closure schemas, and provide a contrastive schema based on the idea of extending answers  ...  CONTRASTIVISM AND CLOSURE Philosophical Studies (2007) 133:233-255 Ó Springer 2006  ...  So Q 5 is not a genuine question, since a genuine CLOSURE, CONTRAST, AND ANSWER 243 question requires multiple cells. 23 So s is not able to answer Q 5 via p 1 , since Q 5 is not a genuine question that  ...

Visuo-Linguistic Question Answering (VLQA) Challenge [article]

Shailaja Keyur Sampat, Yezhou Yang, Chitta Baral
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a novel task to derive joint inference about a given image-text modality and compile the Visuo-Linguistic Question Answering (VLQA) challenge corpus in a question answering setting.  ...  Each dataset item consists of an image and a reading passage, where questions are designed to combine both visual and textual information i.e., ignoring either modality would make the question unanswerable  ...  This is termed as an 'Imageto-Passage Hop'. This is identical to a Visual Question Answering (VQA) scenario that takes an image and a question as input.  ...

Query Answering in Information Systems with Integrity Constraints [chapter]

François Bry
1997 Integrity and Internal Control in Information Systems  
Finally, an approach to answering queries in consistent as well as inconsistent information systems is proposed.  ...  Information system consistency and query answering have been formalized referring to classical logic implicitly assuming that query answering only makes sense with consistent information systems.  ...  In the following, it is proposed to distinguish between "consistent" and "inconsistent answers". In the example considered here, r( b) is a consistent answer while p( a) is an inconsistent one.  ...
