NaverLabs-MunJi ( 문제 ), a Wikipedia scale machine reading system

Sponsor: NAVER LABS Europe

Natural language is the primary medium for storing and disseminating knowledge and recent novel Human-Computer Interfaces have started to show the tremendous benefit of interactions in natural language. As web search services evolve from the world of keyword-based indexation to natural language-driven personalized assistance, the field of Machine Reading has emerged as a possible continuation of the Natural Language Processing tasks. Given a large set of text passages that are associated with questions and answers, our goal is to learn a question answering system solely from these examples. In this demo, we present the first result of our research tower, a ‘Wikipedia-scale service’.
