AQUA - Ontology-based question answering system.
In: 3rd Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 26-30 April 2004, Mexico City, Mexico, Springer, pp. 468–477.
This paper describes AQUA, an experimental question answering system. AQUA combines Natural Language Processing (NLP), Ontologies, Logic, and Information Retrieval technologies in a uniform framework. AQUA makes intensive use of an ontology in several parts of the question answering system. The ontology is used in the refinement of the initial query, the reasoning process, and in the novel similarity algorithm. The similarity algorithm, is a key feature of AQUA. It is used to find similarities between relations used in the translated query and relations in the ontological structures.
