A Question Answering System for Reading Comprehension Tests [chapter]

Helena Gómez-Adorno, David Pinto, Darnes Vilariño
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper it is presented a methodology for tackling the problem of question answering for reading comprehension tests.  ...  The implemented system accepts a document as input and it answers multiple choice questions about it.  ...  In 2011, and later in the 2012, the CLEF conference 1 proposed a QA task for Machine Reading (MR) systems evaluation called QA4MRE.  ...

Designing an interactive open-domain question answering system

2008 Natural Language Engineering  
Interactive question answering (QA), where a dialogue interface enables follow-up and clarification questions, is a recent although long-advocated field of research.  ...  YourQA relies on a Web search engine to obtain answers to both fact-based and complex questions, such as descriptions and definitions.  ...  A typical Question Answering scenario where requests for confirmation should be modelled is upon resolution of anaphora: User : "When did Bill Clinton meet Yasser Arafat in Camp David?"  ...

Evaluation of Automatically Generated Pronoun Reference Questions

Arief Yudha Satria, Takenobu Tokunaga
2017 Proceedings of the 12th Workshop on Innovative Use of NLP for Building Educational Applications  
Pronoun reference questions are multiple choice questions that ask test takers to choose an antecedent of a target pronoun in a reading passage from four options.  ...  This study provides a detailed analysis of evaluation of English pronoun reference questions which are created automatically by machine.  ...  Using this approach, the performance of the anaphora resolution system directly affects the quality of the generated questions.  ...

Anaphora and Coreference Resolution: A Review [article]

Rhea Sukthanker, Soujanya Poria, Erik Cambria, Ramkumar Thirunavukarasu
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The area of entity resolution in NLP has seen proliferation of research in two separate sub-areas namely: anaphora resolution and coreference resolution.  ...  Entity resolution aims at resolving repeated references to an entity in a document and forms a core component of natural language processing (NLP) research.  ...  Some applications of this task in NLP span crucial fields like sentiment analysis (Cambria, 2016) , summarization (Steinberger et al, 2007) , machine translation (Preuss, 1992) , question answering  ...
