Methods for using textual entailment in open-domain question answering

Sanda Harabagiu, Andrew Hickl
2006 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th annual meeting of the ACL - ACL '06  
In this paper, we demonstrate how computational systems designed to recognize textual entailment can be used to enhance the accuracy of current open-domain automatic question answering (Q/A) systems.  ...  Work on the semantics of questions has argued that the relation between a question and its answer(s) can be cast in terms of logical entailment.  ...  Government and any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Government.  ...
