Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

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.
