Ask Any Question – Receive a Short, To-The-Point Answer Snippet

September 30, 2014

Ask Any Question – Receive a Short, To-The-Point Answer Snippet
http://www.quickanswers.io/

QuickAnswers.io, a natural language question-answering engine. It is capable of answering arbitrary knowledge queries made in natural language, such as “How many plays did Shakespeare write?”, “How old is Elon Musk?”, etc. They recently completed a total rewrite of QuickAnswers.io, based on a new algorithm. They call it “shallow QA”, as opposed to IBM Waston’s “deep QA”. IBM Watson keeps a large knowledge model available for queries and thus requires a supercomputer to run. At the other end of the spectrum, QuickAnswers.io generates partial knowledge models on the fly and can run on a micro-instance. QuickAnswers.io is a semantic question answering engine, capable of providing quick answer snippets to any question that can be answered. The current code running at QuickAnswers.io only implements a rather rough version of the new algorithm, so it has a lot of room to get better. The current state of this project only reflects a tiny fraction of what is possible. They have some ideas about how to organize all Web knowledge (!= pages) into a queriable, naviguable structure.
