Proceedings of NAACL HLT 2009: Short Papers , pages 157–160, Boulder, Colorado, June 2009. c 2009 Association for Computational Linguistics Answer Credibility: A Language Modeling Approach to Answer Validation
Answer Validation is a topic of significant interest within the Question Answering community. In this paper, we propose the use of language modeling methodologies for Answer Validation, using corpus-based methods that do not require the use of external sources. Specifically, we propose a model for Answer Credibility which quantifies the reliability of a source document that contains a candidate answer and the Question’s Context Model.
