This paper describes FERRET, an interac- tive question-answering (Q/A) system de- signed to address the challenges of inte- grating automatic Q/A applications into real-world environments. FERRET utilizes a novel approach to Q/A known as pre- dictive questioning which attempts to identify the questions (and answers) that users need by analyzing how a user inter- acts with a system while gathering infor- mation related to a particular scenario.
