Prediction of the Next Question for the Question Answering System

Manvi Breja

Abstract


User profiling, one of the main issue faced while implementing the efficient question answering system, in which the user profile is made, containing the data posed by the user, capturing their domain of interest. The paper presents the method of predicting the next related questions to the first initial question provided by the user to the question answering search engine. A novel approach of the association rule mining is highlighted in which the information is extracted from the log of the previously submitted questions to the question answering search engine, using algorithms for mining association rules and predicts the set of next questions that the user will provide to the system in the next session. Using this approach, the question answering system keeps the relevant answers of the next questions in the repository for providing a speedy response to the user and thus increasing the efficiency of the system.
