“Why is the sky blue?”
This is a question an open-domain question answering (QA) system should be able to respond to. QA systems emulate how people look for information by reading the web to return answers to common questions. Machine learning can be used to improve the accuracy of these answers.
Existing natural language models have been focused on extracting answers from a short paragraph rather than reading an entire page of content for proper context. As a result, the responses can be complicated or lengthy. A good answer will be both succinct and relevant.
The Competitor’s goal is to predict short and long answer responses to real questions about Wikipedia articles. The dataset is provided by Google’s Natural Questions but contains its own unique private test set.
TensorFlow is an open-source platform for machine learning. With TensorFlow 2.0, tf.keras is the preferred high-level API for TensorFlow, to make model-building easier and more intuitive.
