Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

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.
