Topic(s) Question Answering

Abstract:When you turn to Google, or other search engines, a lot of the time you are not trying to browse a topic; you want an answer quickly, and use the returned results to find your answer.

Search engine users have gotten used to subverting the need for questions in this way; however, AI has gotten more sophisticated and can often answer certain types of question in their basic form. “How many people live in the United States?” is answered using a KB concept called “question answering”, as well as others; there are limitations, though, and the following presentation will address them.
