A look at a patent from Microsoft on how Bing may use natural language processes to:
- Understand Questions
- Formulate Queries About Those Questions
- Gather Evidence (find answers) on the Web
- Extract and Rank Answers
In the patent application, the Microsoft Research Asia team behind it has some unkind words to say about IBMs Watson (which likely also apply to the Star Trek Computer building crew at Google as well).
The patent breaks down the kinds of information that it might look for during each of those 4 phases, and provides an example of question answering with a question that could have been taken straight from Jeopardy.
I suspect the Microsoft Research Asia team would like to have Bing (or a future Bing with this natural language question answering engine installed) take on Watson in a game or two of Jeopardy.
The "question" from the patent:
“Shortly after this `Gretchen am Spinnrade` composer met Beethoven, he was a torchbearer at his funeral.”
around 12 minutes in the conversation hits emotion, beauty and usefulness.
