Abstract:

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.
