Abstract:

Gives a comprehensive look at current approaches to automated question
answering. Suitable for newcomers to the field and also professionals
wishing to study in this area. Provides the readers with in-depth practical
knowledge of this critical new technology.

Automated question answering - the ability of a machine to answer
questions, simple or complex, posed in ordinary human language - is one of
today's most exciting technological developments. It has all the markings
of a disruptive technology, one that is poised to displace the existing
search methods and establish new standards for user-centered access to
information.

This book gives a comprehensive and detailed look at the current approaches
to automated question answering. The level of presentation is suitable for
newcomers to the field as well as for professionals wishing to study this
area and/or to build practical QA systems.

The book can serve as a "how-to" handbook for IT practitioners and system
developers. It can also be used to teach advanced graduate courses in
Computer Science, Information Science and related disciplines. The readers
will acquire in-depth practical knowledge of this critical new technology.
