We are a team at the MLT-Lab at DFKI specializing on Question Answering (QA) and Information Extraction (IE) – simply QAIE.
Question Answering (finding and extracting answers for natural language questions from text) and Information Extraction (extracting entities and relations from text) are closely related: both share a number of sub-tasks like named entity recognition, relation extraction and entity linking. We research and develop methods combining Language Technology, Machine Learning and Deep Learning from core components to complete end-to-end solutions. We develop QAIE solutions in many application areas, including e-Health, BioNLP, e-Learning, and intelligent assistance.
Launched in 2019, the joint project of Informationsdienst Wissenschaft (idw) and DFKI uses the Generalized Semantics Retrieval Engine (GSRE) of the QAIE research group for semantic search on the distribution service for scientific press releases in Germany.
