Abstract

The NTCIR-14 QA Lab-PoliInfo aims to achieve real-world complex question-answering (QA) technologies using Japanese political information, such as local assembly minutes and newsletters. QA Lab-PoliInfo has three tasks, namely, segmentation, summarization and classification. We describe the dataset used, formal run results, and comparison between human marks and automatic evaluation scores.
