QANTA:

Question Answering is Not a Trivial Activity

University of Maryland, College Park

QANTA Project

The QANTA project is a University of Maryland research project that focuses on using question answering as a platform for research in machine learning and natural language processing. We build computer systems that be fairly compared against each other and expert humans based on a trivia game called quiz bowl. You can see videos of our previous events against top trivia champs or read about our system:

If this sounds like fun, take part in our next competition!

QANTA Dataset

With the cooperation of the quiz bowl community, we compile datasets of questions that can challenge question answering systems. Read our preprint describing the main dataset. If you're a computer science researcher, this is likely what you came here for!

Human vs. Machine Competitions: Try it!
