  • Purpose This paper aims to present an open source math-aware Question Answering System based on Ask Platypus. [...] Key Method The authors translate these formulae to computable data by integrating the calculation engine sympy into the system. This way, users can enter numeric values for the variables occurring in the formula. Moreover, the system loads numeric values for constants occurring in the formula from Wikidata. Findings In a user study, this system outperformed a…Expand Abstract
