Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Author: N. Webb
Institution: University at Albany, State University of New York
Author: Bonnie Webber
Institution: University of Edinburgh
Linguistic Field: Computational Linguistics
Abstract: In this introduction, we present our overview of interactive question answering (IQA). We contextualize IQA in the wider field of question answering, and establish connections to research in Information Retrieval and Dialogue Systems. We highlight the development of QA as a field, and identify challenges in the present research paradigm for which IQA is a potential solution. Finally, we present an overview of papers in this special issue, drawing connections between these and the challenges they address.
