Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


One of the basic problems of efficiently generating information-seeking dialogue in interactive question answering is to find the topic of an information-seeking question with respect to the answer documents. In this paper we propose an approach to solving this problem using concept clusters. Our empirical results on TREC collections and our ambiguous question collection shows that this approach can be successfully employed to handle ambiguous and list questions.
