Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This is the first year that we ran the LiveQA track, reviving the popular QA track which has been frozen for several years. The track attracted significant attention from the Question Answering research community; 14 teams from around the globe took the challenge of answering complex YA questions with original intent of being answered by humans. The quality of results is still far from human level but, on the other hand, is very promising. Our intention is to run the LiveQA challenge next year, thus, letting participants improve their systems. Our wish is that many other teams will join this joint research effort of answering live questions in real-time.
