  • Machine reading calls for programs that read and understand text, but most current work only attempts to extract facts from redundant web-scale corpora. [...] Key Method To answer the questions, we first predict a rich structure representing the process in the paragraph. Then, we map the question to a formal query, which is executed against the predicted structure. We demonstrate that answering questions via predicted structures substantially improves accuracy over baselines that use shallower representations.Expand Abstract
