Question Generation: Papers from the AAAI Symposium
Arthur Graesser, James Lester, Jack Mostow, Rashmi Prasad, and Svetlana Stoyanchev, Cochairs
Asking questions is a fundamental cognitive process that underlies higher-level cognitive abilities such as comprehension and reasoning. Research on question generation (QG) has a long history in artificial intelligence, psychology, education, and natural language processing, and has far-reaching applications in intelligent technologies, such as dialogue systems, question answering systems, web search, intelligent tutoring systems, automated assessment systems, inquirybased environments, adaptive intelligent agents and game-based learning environments.
This symposium fostered theoretical and applied research on computational and cognitive aspects of question generation, featuring involvement of participants from diverse disciplines including, but not limited to, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, linguistics, psychology, and education.
