NTCIR-16 QA Lab-PoliInfo-3

We designed four tasks
(Question Answering, QA Alignment, Fact Verification, Budget Argument Mining)
with the aim of providing appropriate information for solving political issues.

Tasks

Question Answering

Question Answering aims to generate a summary of the corresponding answers given a summary of the questions in the Minutes.

QA Alignment

QA Alignment aims to associate each question with an answer when given a question and answer in the form of a batch question and answer.

Fact Verification

Fact Verification aims to determine when summaries and minutes are given, whether the contents of the summaries really exist in the minutes.

Budget Argument Mining

Budget Argument Mining aims to extract the part of the meeting that is being discussed when a budget item or amount is given, and determines the argument label (decision, example, fact, etc.) of the content.
