  • Text classification methods for tasks like factoid question answering typically use manually defined string matching rules or bag of words representations. These methods are ineective when question text contains very few individual words (e.g., named entities) that are indicative of the answer. We introduce a recursive neural network (rnn) model that can reason over such input by modeling textual compositionality. We apply our model, qanta, to a dataset of questions from a trivia competition… CONTINUE READING
