Question Generation
for Textual Understanding
via Machine Reading


QUANTUM – a project funded by the Agence National de Recherche – is a joint research project between two academic institutions (LORIA, Nancy & IRIT, Toulouse) and one industrial partner (Synapse Développement, Toulouse). The project aims to investigate the task of passage-level abstractive question generation. That is, we will focus on how to generate questions whose answer is distributed in the text and where the words that make up the question are not necessarily present in that text.

Publications will be posted here as they become available.
