What software do we make available to the community?
Question classification, a question answering subtask, aims to associate a category to each question, typically representing the semantic class of its answer. Question classification is of major importance to QA, since it can help:
- to narrow down the number of possible answer candidates;
- to choose an appropriate answer extraction strategy.
Moreover, a misclassified question can hinder the ability to reach a correct answer, because it can lead to wrong assumptions about the question.
Soon, we will make available the software we used to classify questions, in the source form.
