Title Spoken Interactive ODQA System: SPIQA
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2003

We have been investigating an interactive approach for Open-domain QA (ODQA) and have constructed a spoken interactive ODQA system, SPIQA. The system de- rives disambiguating queries (DQs) that draw out additional information. To test the efficiency of additional information re- quested by the DQs, the system recon- structs the user’s initial question by com- bining the addition information with ques- tion. The combination is then used for an- swer extraction. Experimental results re- vealed the potential of the generated DQs.
