Toward a Question Answering Roadmap

Mark Maybury

Growth in government investment, academic research, and commercial systems building is motivating a need for increased planning and coordination in the emerging field of question answering (QA). The internationalization of QA research, and the need to move toward a common understanding of resources, tasks and evaluation methods motivate a need to facilitate more rapid and efficient progress. This paper characterizes a range of question answering systems and provides an initial roadmap for future research, including a list of existing resources and ones under development. This roadmap was initiated at the LREC 2002 Workshop on QA and will be updated during the 2003 AAAI Spring Symposium using moderated group brainstorming sessions.
