    Abstract

    We describe herein a Web based pattern mining and matching approach to question answering. For each type of questions, a lot of textual patterns can be learned from the Web automatically, using the TREC QA track data as training examples. These textual patterns are assessed by the concepts of support and confidence, which are borrowed from the data mining community. Given a new unseen question, these textual patterns can be utilized to extract and rank the plausible answers on the Web. The performance of this approach has been evaluated also by the TREC QA track data.
