Non-Factoid Question Answering
Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis
Automatic Question Answering (QA) is a broad research area with the ultimate goal of finding useful answers for arbitrary questions. An important challenge in QA is finding answers for complicated questions that require expert knowledge, past experience, or opinions. Even though knowledge graphs contain huge amounts of factual information, they cannot be used to answer such complicated questions. We therefore explore innovative approaches to search for relevant, complex, and unstructured information within the large number of discussions in community Question Answering platforms such as StackExchange and Quora.
