QASYO: A Question Answering System for YAGO Ontology
The tremendous development in information technology led to an explosion of data and motivated the need for powerful yet efficient strategies for data mining and knowledge discovery. Question Answering (QA) systems made it possible to ask questions and retrieve answers using Natural Language (NL) queries, rather than the keyword-based retrieval mechanisms used by current search engines. In Ontology-based QA system, the knowledge based data, where the answers are sought, has a structured organization. The question-answer retrieval of ontology knowledge base provides a convenient way to obtain knowledge for use, but the natural language need to be mapped to the query statement of ontology. QASYO is a sentence level question-answering system that integrates natural language processing, ontologies and information retrieval technologies in a unified framework.
