Question Answering Systems (hereinafter QA systems) tand as a new alternative for Information Retrieval Systems. We conducted a study to evaluate the efficiency of QA systems as terminological sources for physicians , pecialized translators, and users in general. To this end we anlysed the performance of two open-domain and two r estricteddomain QA systems. The research entailed a collectio n of one hundred fifty definitional questions from WebMed. We studied the sources that QA systems used to… Expand
