Theme 1. General QA system
To explore state of the art resources for general QA system:
Template generation (Christina Unger)
Agnostic disambiguation of named entities (Axel Ngonga)
Distributional semantics (André Freitas)
Flexible graph matching (Jin-Dong Kim)
To seek integration of the state-of-the-art resources
Within the OKBQA framework, which was drafted in OKBQA 1 and initially implemented in OKBQA 2.
This time, we will seek a more robust and efficient integration.
To evaluate the integrated QA system
In the end of OKBQA2, the initial implementation of OKBQA framework was minimally evaluated.
This time, we will seek a more proper and full range of evaluation (quantitative evaluation).
The final output will consists of
an integrated QA system based on the OKBQA framework, and
working implementation of the components,
which will become publicly available, and integratable to other systems.
Theme 2. Biomedical Application
To explore applicability of the QA system for a practical use.
Biomedical domain is an area of rich knowledge base.
The QA system will be qualitatively evaluated with involvement of domain experts.
Necessary data sets needs to be prepared in advance.
A minimal set of sample queries needs to be prepared in advance.
