We believe advances in question-answering QA tech- nology can help support professionals in critical and timely decision making in areas like compliance, health care, business integrity, business intelligence, knowledge discovery, enterprise knowledge management, security, and customer support.

Although Bolivia does have strong may be grouped according to their domain for popularity scores, Argentina has strong support in example type matching, passage scoring, and so the geospatial, passage support for example, align- on.

His research interests include natural-language seman- tics, analogical reasoning, knowledge-based planning, machine learning, and computational reflection.

Jeopardy also has categories of questions what exactly is being asked for and which elements that require special processing defined by the cate- of the clue are relevant in determining the answer. This is especially the case in cision, confidence, and speed at the Jeopardy the enterprise where popularity is not as important an indicator quiz show. Information For Readers For Authors. The team conducted part of this project has highlighted the need to more than independent experiments in 3 take a systems-level approach to research in QA, years — each averaging about CPU hours and and we believe this applies to research in the generating more than 10 GB of error-analysis data.
