Experiments on Applying a Text Summarization System for Question Answering (bibtex)
by Balage Filho, Pedro Paulo; de Uzêda, Vinícius Rodrigues; Pardo, Thiago Alexandre Salgueiro; Nunes, Maria das Graças Volpe
Abstract:
In this paper, we present and analyze the results of the application of a text summarization system â€`` GistSumm â€`` to the task of monolingual question answering at CLEF 2006 for Portuguese texts. We hypothesized that topic-oriented summarization techniques could be able to produce more accurate answers. However, our results showed that there is a big gap to be overcome for summarization to be directly applied to question-answering tasks.
