Complex structuring of term variants for Question Answering


Dowdall, J; Rinaldi, F; Imbekwe-SanJuan, F; SanJuan, E (2003). Complex structuring of term variants for Question Answering. In: MultiWord Expressions: Analysis, Acquisition and Treratment.

Abstract

Question Answering provides a method of locating precise answers to specific questions but in technical domains the amount of Multi-Word Terms complicates this task.

This paper outlines the Question Answering task in such a domain and explores two ways of detecting relations between Multi-Word Terms. The first targets specific semantic relations, the second uses a clustering algorithm, but they are both based on the idea of syntactic variation. The paper demonstrates how the combination of these two methodologies provide sophisticated access to technical domains.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
