    Abstract

    Question-answering aims to provide the direct answers to users’ questions, instead of a list of documents that may contain the answers. In recent years, search engines have been transforming themselves into answer engines, by responding to increasingly larger proportions of users' queries (e.g., "when is the next world cup" and "fastest bird") with direct answers ("2018 and "peregrine falcon", respectively).  In this talk, I will give an overview of the approaches to question answering, and discuss the natural language processing and machine learning challenges in answer engines.
