Question-answering system and method based on semantic labeling of text documents and user questions

From the patent:

A question-answering system for searching exact answers in text documents provided in the electronic or digital form to questions formulated by user in the natural language is based on automatic semantic labeling of text documents and user questions. The system performs semantic labeling with the help of markers in terms of basic knowledge types, their components and attributes, in terms of question types from the predefined classifier for target words, and in terms of components of possible answers. A matching procedure makes use of mentioned types of semantic labels to determine exact answers to questions and present them to the user in the form of fragments of sentences or a newly synthesized phrase in the natural language. Users can independently add new types of questions to the system classifier and develop required linguistic patterns for the system linguistic knowledge base.

Another reason to hope the United States Supreme Court goes nuclear on processes and algorithms.

That’s not an opinion on this patent but on the cloud that all process/algorithm patents cast on innovation.

I first saw this at: IHS Granted Key Patent for Proprietary, Next-Generation Search Technology by Angela Guess.
